We woke this morning to what sounded like a jackhammer outside our window. Oh, hold on. It was a jackhammer! Santos and his crew of one have arrived to “do” our California room.
A little explanation is in order in case you don’t know what a California room is. I didn’t.
Our California room is actually a covered patio with an adjoining side yard. It came with a concrete slab off sliding glass doors from the kitchen. As you can see from the photo, the slab is on its way out.
In its place we’ll have a larger sitting area with brick pavers in a herringbone pattern. A gas grill awaits assembly in the garage. We’ll also need patio furniture. We had a ceiling fan installed a few weeks ago.
It’s California so we’ll leave room for plants and a few small trees. Right now we look at a wall. We need more color. Plus Helaine and I both fantasize about picking lemons and other fruit in or yard.
This is a small space. We are trying to maximize every inch.
Santos says today will be the only noisy day. Excellent.
