A-frame exterior plans + progress

a-frame exterior - desert landscapingNow that construction is starting to wrap up on the inside of our A-frame, we have turned our attention to the exterior! The front yard, the back yard, the patios and all that good stuff. And as you can see we ended up going ALL white for the outside. We did it bit by bit, painting another section then living with it for a bit, and painting another section and living with it, and then finally we knew we had to go all the way.


weekend scenes: samuel A-frame

samuel A-frame My parents are visiting from Michigan, so on Sunday we headed down to Palm Springs to scope out the A-frame, start making plans, and treat my mom and dad to some r&r in the desert. Hopefully I sufficiently buttered them up enough to get some more free labor (like on the Michigan cabin) once the renovations begin.

My current favorite space at the A-frame is the garden. Along with the rest of the place, it’s in need of a lot of love, but filled with cactus, fruit trees, eucalyptus and olive trees! Major oasis potential. My black thumb won’t do anyone any good here, but I am willing to learn, so any landscaping/gardening recommendations are gladly accepted.

Hope you had a lovely start to the week. x
