The new look

Gradual upgrades to Zina's Guest House started a couple years go when I took down a wooden picket fence and installed cement and rebar pipes for the fence. This year, shortly before going to Ohio, I installed gates.
Their bright orange and green, along with the fence, make a visually appealing but secure property. On the roof, you can see two shade areas, one the triangle shadecloth above the pool.
The other, a tree trunk pergola with curtains over a beach bed. Both of those are on the roof of my living quarters, which serves as the patio for the complex.
The improvements to the Guest House itself have included addition of a twin bed to each suite and sealing the roof against moisture and insects. Thank you Sergio!
