Where To Begin?

So, when we bought the house, we had a SUPER long list of things to do. There were wants and needs for today, all the while keeping in mind the wants and needs of our big ten year plan. I'm sort of a perfectionist to a fault- if I can't do it perfectly, it doesn't get done. I'm trying my best to over come this and JUST DO IT! My dear friend Kristy (read her blog here) is always telling me to just jump in and do it. Maybe nothing will ever get posted, but I promise you jobs are getting done. I'd like to set you up with a little view of the project ahead of us. I hope you can get a glimpse of why we bought the house, it has so much potential and an AMAZING view.  

We're located in the heart of The Old Village, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina aka The Low Country. We have the most beautiful view of the Charleston Harbor and couldn't be happier with our community. 

I mean, check out our view....

Here are some exterior images.....
The back stairs, technically, but our main entrance. One of the things in the "Ten Year Plan" is to make a defined entrance.  No one ever knows where to knock when they come over- there are FIVE entrances.... soon to be six!
So, officially this is the "front" of the house. See the staircase to the far right- that's the old front door- SO not the case any longer. That old garage door on the side hasn't been operable in God only knows how long. Google images shows that missing shutter goes waaaaayyy back.
One day this whole side will be covered by a lovely privacy fence. We fought hard for the land back here!
