facebook isn't a total loss ? https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... 581&type=3

Original street face is reversed on this page: https://la.curbed.com/2019/10/29/209386 ... wood-hills

The house had undergone noticeable changes to the street facade: https://virtualglobetrotting.com/map/za ... ew/google/

A different version of the plan . . .

The changes in appearance of the kitchen/dining end of the house are puzzling. The growth of foliage alters the scene completely . . . among other things.

Barely legible text on the house; zoom in twice ?

The house seems to have attracted attention in other parts of the world.

Would the screen projecting from the bathroom have provided ventilation with privacy---from neighbors floating in the air on that side of the house ?

A matching carbuncle was added to the street side of the house at some point. Did Elwood's office do that ?

"...zoom in twice?"

SDR, you need a system with touch-screen. I can get up to 12 points.

You have a touch-screen desktop or laptop---or you use a pad ?

I'll have to look into that. I have a LED Acer monitor, which has poor angle-viewing capacity; my next screen will be LCD, for that reason . . .

I have a laptop, though it is permanently on my library table, never on my lap.
With my cranky eyes, a touchscreen is essential.
