An "Unbuildable" Lot 

With steep slopes the engineering needed to stablize the hill included:

1. A garage slab 24" thick.
2. Garage retaining walls that:
   a) started as 36" thick for 48, then
   b) were 24" thick for 48", then
   c) 18" thick for 48". then
   d) were 12" thick to grade

67 steps from the street to the front door 

The original design required 67 steps to the front door.
The Roof Ridge was 113' above the street...that is the equivalent of a 9-story building

 Built as a spec home, when sold the original buyer had us add:
   1. the elevator turret on the right side
   2. a full apartment in the space over the garage
   3. an additional bedroom and bath at the back on the first level of the house
