In an earlier blog, I promised you some pictures of the extension on Ismael and Orfe's house in Santa Ana. The first part of the house was put up within the past 2.5 years. The original part was about the size of a decent living room. Then a front porch was added. Most activity of the day takes place on the front porch. Then a bathroom was added with a toilet and running water! Now the addition doubles the size of the house and porch. Ismael has really used his creativity in the design and features! The land on which the house sits was purchased by Orfe when she was a teenager. Talk about foresight! What a rare thing for a teenager to have the ability and determination to make such a purchase! Other parts of the yard are used for the chicken run and the gardens.
