That roof pitch would bring trouble up north.

Like the sign on the far right! And the huge 9 pane window for the shop. :-)
And the walkways for when it doesn't rain in southern California.
Great pic Jay! Thank you!
Vern, you're right on the money. :-)

Eucalyptus trees were imported to Califunny during the latter half of the 1800s in a botched attempt to fast grow hard woods for construction and industrial uses. By the time the trees matured enough to begin harvesting, they discovered they had imported the wrong variety of Eucalyptus. The wood grain was twisted, and split badly, making the lumber useless for the purposes they had intended. There are still Eucalyptus groves scattered around the state, standing in testimony to man's arrogance, and "oops".
There were also a lot of trees planted in some of the windy valleys as wind-breaks around farms and the new thing called a subdivision, or suburb. They were good for windbreaks because they grew tall and fast. As long as they were kept far enough away from homes and property that could be damaged if the tree fell over. The variety of Eucalyptus commonly imported to Califunny does like to fall down in high winds and storms.
Beautiful trees. And I love the aroma. I used to often drive through one of the old Groves on highway 101 South of Gilroy.
