The Price of Privacy

So, we're getting a house. Phew. We're getting a house. If I say it enough times will it seem real?

Anyway, the house is gorgeous, completely remodeled, and is generally fantastic. However, it has a downfall. No blinds. Yikes. We might want to remedy that situation before we move in.

While we're on the subject of the blinds, let me share a few things with you: our house has 11 windows. Only four of the 11 are the same size. The rest? Different, unusual sizes. Insert lengthy sigh here. Have you ever priced out blinds? The cheap ones will cost me $500 for the whole house. But, I can't just settle for the cheap ones, can I? No, I can't.

Oh, and we'll be losing a little more privacy (and some shade) after I get my way and yank out all the fruit trees. Oh, yeah, they are ALL coming out.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that privacy doesn't come cheap... prepare accordingly.

You can see what we have in storage. Some may work until you can get what you really want.

I have lived in my house for 5 years and still haven't gotten blinds on all of the windows.

Do any of your fruit trees have fruit on them currently? I've made it a goal to learn how to can this year :)

I can't believe you are ripping up the fruit trees!!? I wish I had fruit trees even if it isn't fruit I like. They provided shade, are gorgeous in the spring, and you never know when you might need the fruit! Good luck with the blinds!
