Our little garage was built in 1910 for the cost of $40.00, according to the building permit. When we got here, the original shingles still covered the roof, although sunshine and rain came in through more than one hole, and it was tilting slightly to the right. We had it straightened and shored up, reroofed, painted to match the house. Although these are not our favorite colors they will certainly do for now. We spent this weekend tidying up the backyard, but it still has a long way to go. At this point, work on the backyard entails moving the dirt around, spraying Round-Up on the crab grass, and pruning the orange and meyer lemon (we think) trees.
