Default Time to give the house a face lift.

We bought this manufactured home new in 1989.
Now it's really showing it's age so here we go.

First step is removing all that cactus. My sweet wife did it all while i was out of town.
Next is replacing the siding in the recessed window box.

We only used the fire place a few times the first couple of years so decided to cap off the chimney but keeping the look.
Chimney had to be completely rebuilt.

It is a faux stone a friend had left over after having his whole hose done. We stained it a cedar color then stained on top of that with a charcoal color.
Installation process I learned from YouTube videos.
First up was a screen mesh, then mortar on that then stone and grout.
