The first three shots here are showing the site work for a new little ceramic studio. We are saving that little citrus tree and the foundation will angle around it. This will create an interesting interior space with a cozy sitting area on one end and a wider studio area at the other. The lot slopes down to the right and we are adding a retaining wall along the property line to level the lot. The concrete walls will be board-formed and hopefully look very nice.
This is John McBride, hard at work. Oscar and Jose behind working on the excavation for the footing.
Here you see a new 3/16″ thick steel awning recently installed. Gonzalvo is installing the lag screws. There will be another similar awning over the doors above. I tried to talk the owner into painting them bright blue or fireball orange to match their front door, but she chose a more conservative and very classy grey brown. Kind of like wrought iron.
