I Google-Mapped the address, but it's impossible to see anything for the trees, real and imagined. But the aerial view doesn't show any disturbance of the lot.

Apparently it's being "restored" due to issues with the foundation. This sentence makes me wonder why they were ripping up the floor slab in the first place:
Haddaway said that when contractors lifted up the concrete slab over the living room floor, they found an 18-inch gap between the ground and where the room’s floor had hovered. The soil had subsided, sliding out under the rest of the foundation.

That's the nature of the Hollywood Hills: Decomposed granite is like biblical sand, not a sound foundation. The same thing happened on a large scale under the car court at Ennis, which necessitated and entire reconstruction.
