Neutraface font to front our abode.
We're busy making stuff happen. Outside. While the weather is perfect. Let's take a look.
Our lawn has long been disgraced by this lamp post. For shame. So. We got to work.
As hinted on past posts, we inherited a supply of cement board planks known as HardiePlank. We're putting it to good use.
The house numbers were custom fabricated by a close friend of ours with a CNC machine and some mad skills.
The font we used was the famed Neutraface font inspired by one of our favorite Mid Century Modern architects, Richard Neutra. If you're up for a mindless laugh, check out this video about Neutraface, sung in the key of Gaga.
And we're back.
The numbers "float" off the wall. Sweet.
Aforementioned offensive light post was removed. Tediously. In its place, a post was driven. A few feet over, another post was driven. Posts were leveled. So were our muscles.
Using the cement board, we built a wall.
We painted said wall and installed said numbers. Then we stood back and admired.
Taking advantage of the power source running from the house to the now-removed-post, we installed a weather proof outlet on the backside of the wall. This outlet can service yard work, and light our numbers at night. Revel in our cleverness.
Greatest moment came at completion, when several neighbors came out to compliment the work. They admitted being concerned about what we were up to until the finished product was revealed. Hopefully this is inspiration to our entire hood.
We have plans. Loads of plans. Landscaping plans. Vinyl siding removal plans. Built-in furniture plans. World domination plans. Plans to digress. Digressing... now.
