California joined the Union in 1850, making it the 31st state of the US. It is the country’s 3rd largest state, occupying 423,970 km2 worth of space. It is the most populated state in the country, with around approximately 39,185,605 people. Both these factors together combine to put California's population density at 251.3 persons per square mile - 11th among the 50 states. Home to some of the most prolifically nicknamed cities in the country - think “Athens of the West” Berkeley, “village by the sea” Carlsbad and of course, Los Angeles “the City of Angels,” California has every style of architecture you can think of - and more.
California is famous for having some of the strictest laws and building codes in the country - and yet manages to have some of the highest number of licensed contractors earning their bread and butter. While this might seem to be surprising, that is hardly the case, given the enormity in both the quantity and the quality of homes here. Properties literally could not be more diverse here - you could reside in a French-style townhouse in Lompoc, a modern eco-friendly condo in Oakland, a farmhouse in Palm Springs, a high-rise apartment in Los Angeles. The list is endless. Oddly, there are some things you might find similar in almost all of them - such as the emphasis on natural lighting (regardless of the size of the house), the extensive use of glass and metal, the use of bold and loud pieces (such as a showpiece or art). FixTheHome.Com is dedicated to finding the best professional home services and contractors for your next project.
