The Inglewood Craftsman sold itself to us with its natural light via massive windows. I remember telling Karen Larsen, our realtor, that I only had three desires for a home: in Inglewood, no bars on the windows, and natural light. This place nailed it. One entire wall in the living room is a window!
However, a massive aluminum awning blocked a significant amount of light from coming through. My theory is that the awning was installed before most of the trees outside were mature, but now that the trees provide plenty of shade for the home, the awning is superfluous.
Because of the pitch of the hillside and the weight of the awning, we feared we’d need a team of people to remove the awning. However, I came home one day to find Jon had accomplished the task with only one ladder and a grinder!
