All these windows used to have a view of Mt Rainier before the neighbor's trees grew. Building code said too many windows.
Cleared room in the woodshed and moved everything of value from the front porch
Back in the day, there was a south facing kitchen garden here. Most of the roof tiles were missing on this side.
House cleaning with a back hoe -- very effective.
50lbs of grass seed should have everything greening up soon.
View from the front porch.
Now we see lawn and a grove of birch trees.
The fence keeps deer out of the garden. They eat everything!
The deer fence is being extended to the corner of the woodshed.
There used to be a view of Mt Rainier from the front door of the little cottage.
No view due to other neighbor's trees. Oh well, the little allée is pretty and a good firebreak.
The corner of the old cottage is just barely visible in the woods.
More grass seed here. Nice to have the vegetation removed before it morphs into 100 ft trees.
No before photo. This was all bushes, weeds, and thorny vines.
