My house faces west, which means the sun streams through the large front picture window every afternoon (luckily we are protected by a large overgrown non-bearing fruit pear tree). The Mission District is the warmest neighborhood in the city, and you know that San Francisco rarely gets really hot. Even when it reaches into the 80s or 90s, that temperature only lasts a few days and then the fog comes rolling in, dramatically cooling things off. I love viewing those soft layer of clouds from my front top deck, just hanging west over Twin Peaks. So here is my house and every other house on the sunny side of the street on my block.
