I realized that I never showed you all the finished entrance gate to my home on the hill. It is rather big and pretty impressive for a gate to keep out the cows, I admit. Of course, I have a story for why it is so big here if you want to read the back story.
I thought it would be fun to take 5 pictures and paste them together for a panoramic view:
There is also a control pad, phone and camera system built into the gate. Pretty cool, isn’t it? Plus it matches my house. Here is one reason to have a gate:
I thought I would share the view out my front door:
And here is my door looking back. When this special ordered door was first installed, a cow decided to plop down against it and blew out the bottom of the door. Can you hear me phone my insurance agent and tell them a cow ruined my front door? LOL
Christmas is over, so I guess I had better lose the poinsettia doormat? LOL
Peeking in, you can see there is a quilt pattern in the travertine floor entry way. And you can see the new fireplace mantle and surround. Here is the picture I showed previously before it was finished and grouted:
Anyway, I love my home and it fits me to a “T.” We plan to live here post retirement and hopefully for the rest of our lives. What do you love about your home? Regards, Carla
