    My house looks like a trailer. Ideas?

    Q

    Comments (43)
    We have a similar house and, a small budget to improve. Here's our tips: 1) hire a landscape designer for a consulting/layout consult. Their hourly price is worth it! They design, you plant. It will be so much easier if you had the property surveyed prior to closing so you can give the designer the property survey. Consult w/your local town zoning most have rules on laandscaping distance btwn properties. 2) updating your house numbers and exterior lighting is a pain (we just did it) but worth the effort. If you are not handy, contact your local Chamber of Commerce see if there is a local contractor that takes on small jobs. If you are new to the area, join a community volunteer group to meet & greet and find out who's who in the contracting zoo. You should ask people that are long in the tooth for a tip before you hire anyone. If you get a lot of "I don't know" and, they've lived in their town over 20yrs. I am finding that a lot of really good contractors in my area are on Houzz. Kudos to Houzz for finding them. 3)Does the interior feel like a trailer, too? Ours does. We changed the layout. In our opinion you need: a strong marriage; a partner in the trades; a job with a lot of vacation time accrued and, a tent to live in the backyard while walls are going down/replaced in our opinion. We took the bedroom facing the front of the house and sectioned it into 3 spaces: (street facing) is now a mudroom and a powder room, on the flip side (facing backyard) we created a master bathroom. Looks amazing, took away the trailer feeling. Changing the small master bedroom into 3 new rooms as a DIY cost us about $3k in 2015 includes upgraded electrical and window removals. 4) working on the exterior first is a good idea. when you can smile as you pull in the driveway makes everything else easier.

    Thank you. I like my place. I haven't made any additional changes since... I want to get rid of my media center but I'm on the market for a house so I'm keeping it for now. I am still not very happy with my painting. I feel it's too small for my couch but hopefully, I'll come across something I like soon!

    Help please! Does my living room look cluttered?

    Q

    OK sorry for the 3 like pictures. Couldn't figure how to delete. The mirror will get moved from over the bed soon, antique and very heavy. Will put in bathroom over sink. Soon. Then thinking of nice artwork over. I am wondering if I should put the trunk back at the foot of the bed and put a small dresser where it is? I don't want the room too crowded. this was what I had my TV on in the living room, but replaced it with the TV Stand. I know the pictures and oval mirror are at wrong places and heights. I want to get the furniture right then tackle them. Everyone thanks so much for all of your help. I am glad to carry on.have been out of town and thinking about this project. Really need advice on trunk, and dresser. I still like the bench idea but do have the little stool also.

    Hi Parker! I agree the bee rug is really sweet but doesn't really relate to anything else in your room. This probably isn't helpful but when I look back at all the rugs you've posted, I'm drawn to the one you had years ago and sold for $20. I like the strong green color that is a darker shade than your couch. It grounded the room nicely IMO. Having said that, I think all the rugs you've tried would be fun in your special room!

    Orchid Fact #21:

    Vanda Miss Joaquim was selected from among 40 flowers, 30 of them orchids, to be Singapore's National Flower on April 15, 1981. The variety "Agnes" in particular was chosen for its vibrant colors, hardiness and resilience, qualities that were deemed to reflect the Singapore spirit, uniqueness, and hybrid culture. It is the only hybrid that is a country's national flower and was the first registered plant hybrid from Singapore.

    It was named after Ashkhen Hovakimian (Agnes Joaquim), who hydridized this orchid by crossing the Burmese Vanda teres (now called Papilionanthe teres) and the Malayan Vanda hookeriana (now called Papilionanthe hookeriana), two plants that were cultivated in many gardens in Singapore.

    Research has now shown that the parents should actually belong to the genus Papilionanthe instead of Vanda and the scientific name of this national flower is now Papilionanthe Miss Joaquim, but its common name is still Vanda Miss Joaquim. It is also known as the Singapore orchid or the Princess Aloha orchid,

    Miss Brugamansia, I am so sorry. I just got the card I sent you back in my mailbox with a note that it was not deliverable and unable to forward. I am so sorry. I thought I was using the current list but it had your GA address and not your FL one. I will put it in another envelope and get it back out in the mail tomorrow but you won't be getting it until March. So sorry!

    Received my card today with cosmos seeds from Miss Plumeria today. i can’t believe it was postmarked February 10th and it just arrived. Just crazy.


    I’m I have not included a picture. I did something to cause knee pain and I am having a hard time getting around. I can’t reached the card. This reoccurring knee problem is starting to worry me. If this happens when I garden, it’s going to be a rough year. Without having my covid vaccine yet, going to the doctor has to wait.

    Emily, Thank you for the pretty pink daisy heart card along with zinnia and marigold seeds! I love both and will get them planted asap!! I am hoping marigolds keep the bugs away from my veggies so I really want to grow a lot! Thank you! Amy

    I received a happy surprise in the mail today. Thank you Nicole/bluee19 for the fun Tiger valentine and seeds. The garlic chives, morning glories, spaghetti squash and mixed greens will go perfectly in my garden this year.


    The mail was really slow this time!


    Thank you again!

    I received my prize seeds and card. How absolutely adorable is that card? And to make it reusable was very handy. Did you make these Jayeanne? If so, these are one of the prettiest notes I have seen in a long time. If not, where ever did you find them? I was just organized my seeds and will put the ones you sent in the notes for starting in my new greenhouse. Thank you, you were a most awesome host. Margo

    Hi Nicole! It was postmarked 2/13 - the Post Office must have sent it on a row boat across lake Michigan! :-)

    Miss Plumeria...I got mail!! Thank you very much for my very happy and cute and useful prizes. I did quite well in the game department for the month of February. I am rather embarrassed! I play games for the fun of it all and never expect a prize in return. You are very generous. I am not stating my prizes so not to spoil the surprise for other winning beautiful February flowers. Thank you very much!! What a wonderful month of new and refreshing knowledge and non stop fun!!


    Miss Stargazer Lily.....pretty....pretty...pretty

    Margo, I received mail today! And I'm so happy I feel like singing & planting now - Tra-la-la! 🎵 ❤ 📬

    I received Palmarosa, which sounds so interesting and smells of Roses! China houses, mixed snapdragons which I've never grown. Mixed colors of Columbine & Chinese Kale (Yod Fah?). Thanks so much, Margo for resending.

    I hope whoever received the other seeds plants them.

    📢 Thanks, Margo! 📢

    Miss Rose and Miss Magnolia it seems your Valentine cards are lost. I will get replacement ones out by early next week. I hope everyone has a good weekend.

    Renee, those got there quick. Don’t count the others out. I’m still betting they eventually get there. The post office is struggling right now.


    I'm glad you like the selection. Margo
