The First Pictures

I promised a photo of the mess that I got myself into and here it is...ain't she a beauty, of course now that I think about it, you probably can't see her through the mess that is the un-kept landscaping. Believe it or not, those "trees" in the front blocking the house are actually holly.
If that photo didn't scare you, here is a closeup shot of the backyard. Yes, that is a concrete table and chair set. Upon closer inspection the patio it is sitting on is actually brick; but one could never guess with the overgrown grass and weeds.

This house had been sitting vacant for almost a year; but I believe most of this mess had been around for quite longer then that. Nevertheless, this mess didn't scare me off. The inside is even worse; but I'll save that intrigue for a later time.
