New Lanius Homestead

Fellow Munuvians Howard and RP have posted pics of their new homes, so I thought I would join in the fun (click for larger):


I wonder if Pixy will put up a shot of his new digs?

Update: The picture looks all washed out since I couldn't get the lighting right. I'm no Photoshop expert, so I just jacked up the brightness and added some blue to restore the sky color. The perfect lighting for a house picture will not exist, unfortunately, for another 7 months or so. I figure that at around 3:00 in the afternoon late in the month of February will be just about right. But I couldn't wait ;-)

Came back for another peek. Love the trees in the front. They are gorgeous!

Owlish - actually, we have no boxes left to unpack in the house. Everything is pretty much put away and organized. Our den/family room looks unfinished, as it is awaiting delivery of a couch and coffee table, which should arrive next week.

Only a few boxes (mostly books) remain in the garage, which, I might say, looks more orderly than many garages of people who haven't just moved.

RP, this section of Plano is unlike much of suburban Dallas in that it has many large trees, some hills, and a creek. Not a big deal to many people in other parts of the country, but a huge blessing on this concrete prairie. One reason (among many) that we did not want to move out of the neighborhood.

Large trees and small hills anywhere in the Dallas area are a thing to be treasured, for sure. Plano has always reminded me of northwest Austin, only flat...

Looks wonderful, John! One of my sisters used to live in Plano---I certainly don't remember there being all that many trees. Looks like you lucked out!
