I wish I could tell you, we saw it a few years ago at our favorite garden center with no tag. It was tiny compared to now but my best guess is run of the mill bloodgood tree.

Started my kitchen renovation recently. I want to repaint walls in the kitchen and buy new cabinets. First time in my life I'm going to do it by myself, I think paint walls is not so hard task. I already have some supplies, ladder and paint, I checked reviews on https://abovethefloor.net/ about best ladders. Also specific question, can I paint white over an orange wall without a white primer? The paint supposedly has primer in it but I was told two different answers two days in a row and now I'm confused.

Sure, you can. It will certainly take two coats, likely three to get good coverage, however.

If the paint has primer in it you shouldn't have to. But only if it's a quality brand cause I tried a cheaper brand that had primer and it was shit. I only use Behr Marquee from Home Depot and have only had great results. Also because it is the kitchen make sure the walls are nice and clean

Japanese maple added to front courtyard, Japanese blood grass added to front planter
New 6" gutters, downspouts and drain tile scheduled
6 yards of topsoil delivered and redistributed post sewer line repair
Light fixtures and outlets added to basement workout area
New window shades installed throughout
Replaced a few interior/exterior light fixtures, got some art hung on the walls, put together a couple of bookshelves
Concrete walkway and coop for trash/recycle bins scheduled to be poured
Fascia wood replacement scheduled
House repaint scheduled

If anyone is on Instagram, you can check out @flatrooffantasies for the blow by blow.
Let's see those Japanese maples! I'm trying to decide which one's to get?
Here it is with some Japanese blood grass in the background.

I thought about it and I can't come up with anything it looks fine but seems like there should be something. Maybe Google ideas

I hope that it's for a really small trailer, because I would not want to wrestle my 24-foot enclosed race car hauler into that tight spot with the mailbox post pinching the left side of the driveway where I'd likely need to swing the truck!

My $0.02 is to plant a bumper post in the concrete to protect the gas/water (?) meter.....

Today I found a nice summer house in Montenegro, Kotor Bay on the internet but I don't know what to do with this ugly part. Actually I can't even figure out what is this part: a balcony or a terrace? Maybe the part with railings belongs to the house and the ugly part is the terrace of the next building. I'm so excited because it fits perfectly to my expectetions and budget but.. Any ideas what is it and what to do with it? You can check the real estate in Kotor here.

Maybe you should find out which part is yours first?

It's all I got to work with. The wood gate is exactly 10' wide when open. I don't have a trailer yet, but my truck is going to sit back there for now.

Looks like last owner may have had plants or something else on a shelf off the railing (at least on the side). They should have left them there for the listing pictures.

It's a tough one. First I was thinking about the corner. Then I saw the different colors and lines to the right of the corner. I was think an acrylic sheet to cover it all. Not something transparent. May be an off white or pure white. Alternatives would be to put some color there... may be a plant to detract from the corner. A little bit of green might break it up well. At the right height and may be in a rectangular box you probably wouldn't notice it.

Not my house but the one I grew up in. Still don't know why dad wanted to enclose that. Hope I'm not asked to paint it!

Pst.....https://www.schluter.com/schluter-us/en_US/Profiles/c/P

You're welcome.

Inlaying any of the profile trims will require removal of the tile and re-installation, but these look great.

"Schluter" like others recommended is the way to go to finish off tile.. not sure why you have that casing trim there? If you show a zoomed out picture i think we can provide better advice.
