Mazatlan Ruins

I love the old homes around Centro, even the ones that are falling to ruin. Maybe someone will bring them back to life in the future...I hope.

Backyard remodel project

Our backyard was a concrete wasteland, not friendly to dogs or humans. The remodel will use salvage historic materials to go with our 100+ year old house. And grass!


I wish I'd taken pictures of more of my projects over the years, but here is some of what I've done.

Share and Enjoy !
