Pedro laying bricks. He recycled the original ones and mixed in a new batch we were able to find that are a fairly good match. After a little time and weathering, they will blend in reasonably well.
After the computer room was all painted and finished, thanks to Raygena Barrett, and the closet was finished, it was time for the carpet. Jesus and his son Luis did a wonderful job adding that final touch.
Ray, Alex, and Pedro pose in their finished masterpiece. They also did the earlier remodeling on the house. Lueras Construction Company does beautiful work.
This is how it looks on the north side. And here is the finished end, which faces east, and then you see the south side.
Empty it looks all shiny and new and perfectly neat. I really hated to move into it and clutter it up with all that stuff! Now everything has a place. The sewing machine goes in the space you see in the picture above. The closet door is a pocket door, not the door you see, which is on a closet in the other room. All my clothes, shoes in their boxes, jewelry, ironing board, sewing materials, labeled boxes of photographs, cactus books, hobby supplies, and just about anything else that will fit into a basket to look neat and tidy are now in the closet. I even have a nifty three-step ladder/step stool so I can reach all the high shelves easily. And it has its own little air conditioner/heater so it will always be comfortable. I have even set up my 8-foot folding table to work on a project and had room to spare to get around it.
