about that tree

Daniel Macias stopped by the site today to supervise the trimming of our sapadillo (or sapote) tree. Danny owns The Billy Goat, and has been maintaining the grass around our site during construction (they also maintained the yard around the previous house on the site before we started construction). They’re helping us preserve as much of the sapadillo as possible. This tree, along with the big avocado in the back yard, were part of the plan of tin box from the beginning. The sapadillo works with the cantilevered roof to frame the patio space facing the park across the street, and also helps hide the big electric pole just outside our living room. It’s a beautiful tree, and, if we’re lucky, it might start producing fruit.
