The Petty Home, a turn-of-the-century Queen Anne, is being fully restored by Miles Honeycutt. Miles is the same general contracter who oversaw restoration of the Clapp-Ferguson home and Winston's Broken House, both in the Cleveland-Holloway neighborhood. Miles is restoring the home in keeping with historic elements of the original house to a single family dwelling. Check back often and watch this great home come back to life.

Paths less traveled.

MORE PHOTOS OF MY YARD! Just what you wanted right?!

So at this point everything is pretty much done except planting. Now that the summer heat is starting to break that will be happening soon. Jon and Caitlin have done an amazing job so far. If you need anything built inside or outside of your house or some amazing design work be sure to holler at these guys. They are simply berries to work with - http://www.greenlightcustomhomes.com/

 The blue stones are all in and the gravel has been laid for the area right off the deck and the path through the planting beds. The pergola roof has also been put on and looks great. Blue stones were laid with a layer of fine gravel underneath to prevent shifting over time.

A tiny rock wall gives a little more shape around the large tree next o the fence.

 Pavers off the back of the deck lead around to side yard and front porch side steps.

 This will all look much neater once mulch and plants are in but it's looking great so far. Nellie and I buried an incredibly long drainage pipe that ties in three gutter down spouts and runs under this path. I LOVE watching water gush out of it when it rains hard. We dug trenches for about 100 feet of black pipe for that little project which was an accomplishment for people as lazy as us.
