Before: 1,200 sq. ft. Del Mar, CA gloomy entry
Once upon a time, there was a house that was not exactly welcoming. Overgrown Monterey pines obscured the front door, making
the approach gloomy. And for guests, getting from the driveway to the front door was a pain—after parking, you had to return
to the sidewalk, skirting a jungle of juniper, and climb a steep staircase. (And if you thought you could maybe slip through
the juniper, forget it: A wooden railing stood guard.)
