I really like your landscaping! Did you do it yourself? Sorry if you have already answered that somewhere else.
My husband and I are trying to redo the backyard and some of the front ourselves. A lot didn't make it through the hottest summer ever (Dallas) and drought.

Yes, there were more but I got in trouble from our photographer about publishing all the pics without his consent. I am trying to work things out right now. When I posted I did not mean to make it a link to all the photos. I am very new to this. Really?! Lame. You should just take some pictures you...

Welcome :cheers:
Are there many mcm houses in Richardson? Looked for about 6 months and only found one for sale there. Ended up buying in Dallas. I love Richardson though.

If anyone's still interested, C&B have 5 mcmish duvet covers. I bundled the links here:

Unfortunately, none are what I'm looking for. Except maybe the Rocco Grey. The walls are kind of a mint green so that eliminates a lot. And I'm not a fan of brown.

Looks great! I wish we could have a laundry room but I should just be thankful that there's a space in the kitchen for the w/d.

The bathroom tile is exactly what I've been thinking of...maybe I'll get around to it in the next 5 years or so... :wink:

No cake. I'm not a big fan of cake and neither is my fiance. We're having bite-sized desserts. Including baklava!

It's not a traditional wedding at all. No bridal party/groomsmen, no bouquet, no aisle, etc, etc.

And thanks Joe and Sky!

So how's the painting going? It's going. We got many layers of paint stripped and have most of it primered. Caulking mostly done too. Thankfully, much of the house is brick so there's not as much to paint. The entire right side of the house (the long part of the 'L') is wood but we aren't going to ...

Wedding at my house--details

Before my wedding stuff takes over another thread, I thought I'd post some details here. Decided to have it at our home (Cliff May) because nowhere I wanted to have it was worth the money (Hall of State, Filter Building at White Rock, etc). Right now we're spending most of our time getting the outsi...

What to do about damaged B&B siding?

I searched the board (and google) but didn't find anything...maybe I don't know what I'm searching for though. We're in the process of painting our house and have stripped the paint down to the first layer (smooth). But we hit a problem when we got to the wall on the outside of the master bedroom. W...

I can't think why anybody who really cares about their MCM home would want to add a second story to a house that was designed to be a single story. This seems like bad advice to me. I agree. Also, many times it is just not neighborly. I'm in a Cliff May neighborhood and our neighbor to the side has...
