I am going to get Kristine Woolsey and the owner talking this week.
I am going to continue my quest for photos and plans, and I will have Nancy Beadle and other family members come to the site to get their input and memories.
Jason, would you be interested in working on some ideas for a guest casita?
maybe ending up in this area at the northeast end of the lot:
Right now I am thinking that it wouldn't be proper to copy the design elements of the main house to use on the potential casita. This casita idea has some preservation/progress baggage, but lets roll with it for now.
It is looking like the carport will be reconstructed as close as possible to the original. I think everybody can get on board with that.
The casita might be incorporated into a pool area as well.
I guess the carport was over here(the black dog is not original):
MrsX is going to try to find these tiles that are used on the front of the house:
We will be looking for volunteers to install them on the front of the home. This is one of the tasks that will possibly help soothe the neighbors.
Here is a non-glamorous task for anybody interested. To make this protective wood on the back look better and more secure.
If anybody knows a good metal guy
, here is a project for him. Notice that there are only two out of the three shade thingys up there. The other one is inside the house and it is rather bent up. I don't know if the thing can be saved, or if it needs to be rebuilt from scratch.
I should have taken shots of the inside, but I neglected to. It is pretty much wide open. There was a master bedroom plus two additional bedrooms.
