We are converting the building (originally a garage) into an ADU. I’ll be posting progress here. But to begin with, I thought it might be interesting to show the history of the structure over the past twenty years.
We bought in 2000, and before long split the garage into two sides: the “garage” side (i.e., the storage side) and the “office” side, where I had a server rack, my work desk, and was the space where I did all my projects.
The flora around the building changed over the years. The original trumpet vine dominated the garden side for a while. For five or six years, grape vines covered a lot of the building. Later, roses grew in. The Senna tree near the back corner fell over and was replaced by another, which then later got moved elsewhere in the garden.
It turns out that I take a lot of pictures of the garden, but few of the garage itself. I guess that’s not too surprising. You can click on any of the pictures below to see them enlarged.
