This is one of those makeover where we have to suspend disbelief. The '50's ranch pictured above came to the new owners complete with a concrete front yard and metal fence that made it look like a prison. (Not the vibe most people want in their curb appeal.) The owners of the ranch decided to remove it all and then reorient the garage (at the far left). Now what does it look like?
Besides removing the penitentiary paraphernalia, the owners terraced the yard and then walled off the top level to create an outdoor room. To see pictures of the new room from the inside, travel over to Sunset.
