Finally, The Renovations are DONE!!!

After almost 2 months to the day since the palm trees were removed, the final job was completed today…. at 4:43 PM, PDT.  Yes, I’ve been counting the minutes!  The landscape guys were the hardest workers we hired and did a super job!  There were several ‘extra’ things I asked him to do and he did all of them a no charge!!  The palm tree removers and the garage door guy were very good too.  As for ‘Dad’??  No comment!  He had to be the most clumsy, inept handyman around but somehow he got the jobs done. 
Anyhow, I have posted a photo album of the lawn’s reicarnation from right after the palm trees were romoved until tonight!   Mrs Serious and I are very pleased with the final results:  me for the lawn and the patio and her for the new flower bed and her office.  Next projects? (next year!) Having the floors re-tiled and new kitchen cabinets installed.  I can’t wait!! Confused

    Yay!! So….when will you be down my way, I have quite a list compiled.
    Guess what Bob?  I know how to lay tile AND I have my own kneepads, but I’m sure that doesn’t suprise anyone ;-P
    We ripped out all the carpeting 3 years ago and began the painstaking job of laying 18" ceramic tiles, on the diagonal no less, in the main parts of the house.  It took the hubby and I six weeks to finish, but I’m not sure we’ll ever truly be finished.  Home improvement sort has a snowball effect once you start.

    congrats! You should be very proud.
    Now–go have a drink on me. Or two…or….

    Great lookin’ yard! Send those guys my way would  ya’?  Thought since I can’t sleep, well not after the phone rang at 11:00 PM!  Anyway, since I’m up, and WIDE EYED, thought I ‘d stop by to say HEY!  And do some catching up.  I have another DELL story for ya’.  I’ve worked with them many times in the past couple of years, but I don’t call them cuz I don’t have the patience to sit on hold forever.  I just go to their website and grab someone on a live chat!  Works out great and I don’t have to decipher their dialect.  AND, I never wait more than a couple of minutes!  They really have made great strides in their support the last few years.  Then when we’e all done and they’ve gotten whatever system I might be working on, up and running for me, they always send me a transcript of the entire conversation for my records.  I can always tell by the tech’s name that they’re in India, but if that’s what it takes to get ‘better than me’ tech support, so be it, I guess.  Too bad American techs don’t want to provide that kind of excellent customer service.
    Anyway, good job on the puter AND the yard!  I’m off to visit a couple other spaces before I try to sleep again.

  8. KatSoup says:

     ooo la la.  It looks great.  I want sod real bad.  Its the prep work that keeps me from doing it.  There is a sod farm about 1/4 mile from me.  It is beautiful.
    I am so glad that you are pleased with the final project.
    The Buffet link didnt work but thats okay cuz he stays in my cd changer all summer.  Can’t go to florida without jimmy ya know.

  9. KatSoup says:

     ps. I would love new kitchen cabinets! 
    ….I am thinking of having open cabinets in the Florida house.  That way you can see everything that is available without having to know where everything is.

  17. Cindy says:

    Good job and I bet you are so glad this phase of home improvement is done.  When I saw the pictures of the load of sod, I couldn’t help but think of a landscape company around here called Green Side Up! 
    Enjoy your new lawn!

    That took a bit of time, now didn’t it??  They almost work as fast as I do! ROFLMAOHope you’re doing well.  Take care and talk soon 🙂

  23. Jane says:

    Looks Great, Bobbo!  Now go get yourself a drink and a snack and sit down with the directions for that sprinkler timer.  Then, get yourself a drink and a snack and sit down every night and watch it sprinkle because as soon as you turn your back…. you’re going to be back the the ‘before’ pictures.
    Nah, just kidding.  I’m sure the whole thing will work like a charm!  I mean if you can grow bonsai, you can surely grow grass!
    Happy weekend!!!
