    I was just at my mom's place for a few days.

    She built this house 4 years ago...and the before/after pics are quite striking. All work done by her and my sister...stone work was completed by my best friend whose family owns an excavating company.

    "Before" pics taken with Kodak easyshare clunker.
    "After" pics taken with canon 20d...that I just got...and can barely use.

    And I always take pics of Evan Gillette's gravestone. He died in the WTC attacks...pretty awful. Google him for more info if you'd like. (pic taken from the shade garden)

    Wow!!! Her house looks great!!! I love that barn in the back. If there werent horses, that would be the ultimate Man Cave. You could do some serious taco mod work back there. :cool:

    Actually, my sister built the barn almost entirely by herself. She paid a guy to help her frame it...then she did the rest with some help from my dad.
