my husband and I live ON A FORMER CITRUS GROVE in a 1952 red brick home WITH OLD
CHARMING DETAILS LIKE an old fashioned milk box and mail slot.
Our Central Phoenix neighborhood was a former citrus farm in the early 1900s before they built homes on it in the 50s. When we bought the home in 2011, there were 65+ year old citrus trees on our property. Unfortunately at the end of their lifespan, we have replaced them with new fruit trees and raised garden beds. I am often found at the nursery around the corner and I probably go in there more often than the grocery store!
We have been renovating our home since we moved in and this fall 2018 we got our permits approved for an expansion consisting of an additional living space and full bath. We are currently in construction here and hope to be completed by February 1. This entertaining space will also serve as a temporary guest room (Murphy bed) that leads out to our garden and backyard. See all of our home projects that we have documented here and all home expansion posts here.
