Finally, we can see the front of the house


It's been 3 months and 2 weeks , I am finally back home in Melbourne. It's cold and raining , normal winter day. 

My french house has so many trees every where, the previous owner didn't like to trim the trees and the house was empty for almost 6 years before we purchased.

The renovation started from last year November. 
The house is getting total make over at the moment.

There was a two tree in front of the house which impossible to see the front of the house.
My hubby and I decided to cut the trees so we could have more light in the living room and dining room. It was a good decision as a matter of fact.

This is the old photos of the house . the photo must be taken a long time ago.




This is the photos of over grown trees in front of the house.
Mr. Vincent, our care taker for the garden, is cutting the trees.




One down and one more to go




We had to use heavy machinery to dig out the huge roots.



It's much better without the tree. 



Now, I can clearly see the house from the garden.









I am going back to France in September to finish the renovation. It is good to be home but Can't wait to go back. I miss my house in France.

Have a wonderful day where ever you are

Your home is so beautiful, and so warm and welcoming as well. You are so kind and helpful to include all the information and resource lists you provide, so I am a bit embarrassed to even ask this weird question: what kind of beverage bottles do you have in your bottle holder? They are the perfect size for a similar holder I have. Thank you!

Julie,
What a beautiful home. It looks wonderful without the trees. Looks like you have some lovely roses. I can't wait to see more. What is the age of the house?
