The time had come for an expansion of the back patio and the addition of a "bodegita" (small storage room) to the house. We have yard equipment, tools, boxes of stuff, Christmas ornaments, luggage, etc. stored in and around the house taking up valuable space. And the larger items, such as bicycles and a car top carrier, have been stored in the original bodegita which was constructed out of heavy paper and wooden poles to house the workers who were building the house over two years ago. It had seen better days...
Then it was on to the bodegita. We had this planned for quite a while. The extension is off our kitchen so we had to give up looking out the kitchen window into the back yard. But the pluses outweighed the minuses.
