Storage room on it's way

I thought I would post some before pictures of where my storage close will be built. This used to be my square gazebo and you can see that all the beautiful vines have been pulled out and the structure torn down.
The above picture is where it will be. the size will be 8X20, so part will be my clothes closet when my craft room is expanded and the other half will be a sitting area in my bedroom. Al is starting this weekend with the piers and the foundation, so as he works, I will post pictures of the progress.

                                               This is a view from the opposite direction and you can see where I painted on his shop and has held up for over 13 years. I used patio paint to free hand and stencil some butterflies on it. The little picket fence is just nailed to the building. The only thing left to do is pull up the lariope and I just don't know where to put them. I hate just throwing them out, because they aren't cheap anymore, so will try and put them in pots, so that I can relandscape the area when done. I hope to show you the finished room soon. I'll be using it to store my craft room cubes, so that I can move my bedroom set back from the country. Looks like I'll be moving back after the first of the year. The few years apart have helped our relatonship a great deal and it will be 39 years in November that we got married, then remarried on the 10th of December in a church ceramony.
See you tomorrow for frufru Friday. Hugs, Pat

That would be a dream come true for me, sugar. But no way will Hubby do that. It would mean rearranging our irrigation watering pipes and he's NOT going to do that, chick. Sigh.

It will be fun to watch the progress.

We checked for pipes and there are no pipes where this is being added on. My son gave me $50 for my birthday and my daughter gave me $60, so this helps a great deal. Getting excited. My friend also gave us 4 boxes of tile which will be used in the closet area and my sitting area will have carpet to match my bedroom. Thanks goodness it's almost new,so no faded spots to show. Will continue as progress goes along. Hugs, Pat
