My family also helped me do some sprucing up outside, including removing the ugly metal awnings on the doors, taking down the old satellite dishes, weeding, and more. Here are some before and after shots.
You can't see it in this picture - but there used to be a bungee cord holding the mailbox together (classy!), and that's gone, too!
We also took off the second mailbox (?), the old mount for the doorbell, and the overgrown bush by the door. LOTS left to do, but it's a good start!
