This building is old and beautiful. The room we will fence in is stunning, with high ceilings and exposed wooden beams. Banks of windows (which can be opened) line the room facing downtown Santa Cruz. 2 substantial HEPA filter air purifiers adorn the room as well.

I’ve fenced for decades all over the states. I’ve never crossed blades in a room as lovely as this.

Park for free at the bank next door.
