We closed on the new house in the Lake Ashton 55+ community in Winter Haven Florida in late July 2019 and these shots are all very early in the initial six months – lanai furniture worked in living room until moving day early in August. We will have a 23 by 13 pool with a spa built also – all enclosed with the lanai paved in a large bug free birdcage. It’s a time consuming process – lots of contractors and working men all of whom were very professional and relatively efficient. Little artistic efforts taken by the tile installers or landscapers make you smile in reflection. All of this structural work was followed by landscaping and lawn improvements that are the crowning touch to our new home. We have also met lots of lovely neighbors and couldn’t be happier having made this choice.
Front of our house upon closing – decorations coming soon with many more colorful plants in the gardens.

Lenny is happy to finally have a new home.
No furniture makes living area look even bigger and Lola look tiny! We love our grey porcelain tile floors.

Lenny assesses his new backyard which will contain a pool and other elements eventually.
Lola says the new house is fine for naps
Both dogs adjusted quickly.
Lenny likes all couches – even the outdoor one – indoors.

Our sunrises and sunsets here are glorious. The south facing location of our home offers us great views of both sides of the day.
Photos of the final product will be in the next post. Promise.
