Thanks John!

I don't know if you remember, but in the master bedroom the original closet was demolished. An IKEA wardrobe was added on the wall now wallpapered.
Restoring that closet was a bit of a pain but one of our smartest choices.

Great house! Great neighborhood!

I drove by the house about a month ago and saw that it was empty.

Great house! I checked Long Beach's online permit archives. I found the original building permit (1967). There was an owner and contractor listed but the space for the architect was left blank. The owner's previous address and the contractor's address were listed. I took a look at the houses at thos...

Thanks Jonu. I've never heard of this company and will follow up. It's not always easy trying to find what you need to do a small job. I appreciate the help.

You might want to contact Barton Choy -- principal of the architectural firm founded by Eugene Kinn Choy.

He is based in Pasadena and started designing homes in Silver Lake in the early 70s.

Make sure the roofer uses spruce for the new fascia.

You could have a framer replace the damaged rafter tails. Or, you could just sand, patch and paint them. Their flaws might just disappear.

The listing describes the house as being in 'Silverlake'. Its location would be more accurately described as Los Feliz or Franklin Hills. Scowsa -- I live less than a mile from this place.
