With the a brand new living room outside, the family expects to be spending many a So-Cal weekend outside
Custom ordered furniture picked out by the owner is accentuated by the polished poured-in-place concrete fire pit.
A new sunbrella shades the seating area from the harsh noon sun, but tucks away at night so you can see the stars.
Even the pit is ready to entertain with a removable wood cap, turning it into an outdoor coffee table or serving tray.
The owner also chose to replace the existing front yard with new turf, just in time for California’s new water conservations.
