Chris, As a landscaper myself, I go by there all the time. I know for a fact the all of the palms are original. They always planted them as this was their little trademark. Palms were planted in 3 to show the 3 brothers. Funny. At least that is what I was told. They also had a waterfall with the sam...

A Later Reply to SDR

We will probably be going to the desert where Steve has some work lined up. Eventually, I want to work with an architect to design a glass and steel house - something very, very modern, cutting edge with a Japanese flavor. I know sounds odd, but I have a vision and I just need to find the right arch...

Reply to SDMod

Hi, The reason we added on was because so many people who came to our house when we were selling a year ago were afraid of the HPOZ. They wanted the house, but they wanted more square footage and were afraid - "what if we buy and the HPOZ doesn't let us add on?" So we decided to take away the proble...

Hi, I understand what you're saying. But I couldn't live with the original muddy brown, dirt brown and chocolate brown colors of the original. After much reading about Gregory Ain, talking with his daughter and with the consensus of the neighborhood - the feeling is that these Ain homes change with ...

Joe, Thanks for your kind words. We have tried to keep it simple and as much to original as possible. The pinks, purples can all be changed as that is carpet, paint and VCT. I just like those colors. We built an original style closet in the master and we've gotten a lot of comments from friends that...

The Blog

Thanks for your thoughts on the blog. I really did the blog mainly to talk about the addition we were building. As to house pictures that will "sell" the house, I'm probably going to have a virtual tour up by Monday or so which I think will give a lot of views of the different rooms. I don't know if...

SDR, Thanks for that. When we went to the Historical Board they were not happy that we did our addition so close to the original. ie windows, doors, elevation, etc... We are long time owners (1985) and wanted to stay with the original features that we are so familiar with. So the Curtural Heritage B...
