This is a remodel of the original house on the property. There's a clapboard bungalow under there. The upper house was on a MAK tour a few years ago. The roar of interstate 5 does make the outside less desirable than is was when built.

Swamp coolers only work were it's dry. The humidity is too high in the coastal LA plain.

I do not stay logged in either
When clicking the symbol to see new posts in a thread, it loads the newest page, but does not go to the newest post. It always starts at the top of the page.

I guess air conditioning is a given, whereas it apparently wasn't in the 'fifties/'sixties. This isn't global warming, surely; have we become "softer" in the intervening decades ? SDR Said the man who lives in San Francisco! Was it Twain who said he was never colder than when he spent a summer in S...

I imagine (hope?) the glitches will get worked out once the transition is complete. In the meantime I just sign in every time I come here, because the board does not keep me signed in.

This was posted by a friend of a friend on Facebook. I can't find any attribution but it does make sense: "For those who don't know ; The wiretap President Trump is referring to in his tweets has nothing to do with him running or being President! It is in fact related to a warrant issued back in Oct...

That's livin' in California! I bet the pattern floor in the Normland Jr. house was a no-wax "upgrade" from the 70's I (we, it was team effort) removed the very same from my 1954 Rancho. Two layers, so it lined up with the original VAT tiles in the rest of the house. Was a bitch compared to how easil...

The honesty, clarity and simplicity of Cliff May ranch houses, from the larger custom designs to the smaller tract houses is something rare, indeed.

Well then, we should just burn coal and not try to innovate. If there is one thing Lancaster has, it's sun. It makes more sense to put panels on roofs out there than to destroy desert habitat for solar farms. Of course they are still connected to the grid. That how they keep the lights on at night. ...

Cliff May was descended from early California settlers on his mother's side. He was directly related to the family that built the Casa de Estudillo: https://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/american_latino_heritage/Estudillo_House.html He spent summers at his aunts ranch in northern San Diego county, now on a ...

I find it so disturbing that those on the right act like they elected Mit Romney or someone like that, not a Breitbart puppet. I'm sure Ronald Reagan would be so proud of his party colluding with the Russia. Here's link with a photo of both Jill Stein and Mike Flynn sitting at banquet table with Put...

Well, Bannon cleverness anyway. He is the one actually in charge.
I heard that Giuliani was not given a job because he is suffering from diminished metal capacity.
