Former support beam, made of redwood, is featured in garden seating re-design

庭には家の中にあった柱の一つが置いてありましたが、それを座れるベンチにしました。重いレッドウッドの柱が浮いているみたいに見えます。「レッドウッド」は「セコイア」とも呼ばれます。カリフォルニアにたくさんある木で、虫やカビに強いから、建築に使われます。

In the thirteen years that I have taken care of this San Francisco garden, the former support beam from the basement has always been part of the landscape. This visit, I excavated below the beam, so that it’s floating and providing a place to sit and face the kitchen steps. The home was built in 1907, after the big 1906 earthquake.
