Robert Abasolo is a small house entrepreneur who lives and works in one of my old cities, Los Angeles! He contacted me in 2017 and together we designed The Jacaranda as a backyard (detached accessory dwelling unit) rental for his lot. The photos convey the beautiful job he did using a combination of his own talents, family members and local contractors. Like most big city projects I work on this one was no less challenging during the permitting stages. Robert’s refreshing upbeat nature, sense of humor, creative personality and diverse skills all played an integral role in making this project a success, not to mention one of the most enjoyable far away projects I’ve worked on. Enjoy!
