Papa’s World – Building a new home – crossing off home improvements – one at a time!

When we decided to build a new home – we made our selections – but there were things we wanted that had to come after the build – they – the builders did not offer them!

We had a list of things – small – and we had to either hire them done – or do them ourselves / some had to do with landscaping!

Those we hired to be done – involving planting trees – taking out pine straw – replacing with stones and rocks.

And putting in yards of mulch.

Having already removed everything from the outdoor patio – I put down two coats of outdoor concrete paint!

This we had wanted to do from the start – along with doing the same to the enclosed covered lanai.

Here – Sherry and I placed all the furniture from inside outside so I could prep and paint!

When you get old – crawling around on concrete does a number on your knees and feet!

So – I folded up old towels – four of them and would spread them out – so I could move along and paint the trim areas.

But – being old – I still needed to stand up after reaching the end of the four towels – just to stretch those muscles!

The enclosed lanai – working my way from that end to the door that opened up on the patio.
The final stretch – the open door!

It took me two days but I did it! Cross this off the list – and now to put it all back together again.

The end product – inside the lanai!
Inside looking outside to the outdoor patio.
At last, we are done with this project – cross it off the list!

Being old does not mean you can not accomplish a planned project – I know my limitations –

The feeling when done – is worth all those aches and pains!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World.
