On our first weekend we cleared everything away from the front of the house. We can now see the sand!
On day two we moved stuff from the side entrance. All that junk on right of photo is waiting to be bulldozed.
Next was clearing out the patio. Believe it or not, this is a huge improvement. We are keeping this furniture for now, all of which we found on the property. There are probably 12 dead refrigerators in various spots. Ted jokes we can do a Desert Stonehenge with them.

dead refrigerators make great targets for shotgun practise!!!

There are many things in the desert that make good target practice, judging from the bullet holes in almost everything (including windows). And we thought El Sereno was our only gun-loving neighborhood.

not sure, is it mauve, or faded pink?

Definitely faded pink. Very faded. Original house was green, which we can still see on certain parts of the structure.

Anna does most of the writing. Ted does most of the photos. But sometimes we switch. We are repairing a distressed property in 29 Palms, California, and eventually hope to run an artist residency there.
