Is this an article, or just a really cheap commercial for real estate developers and one particular architect? Just what does a quirky home in LAH have to do with Palo Alto? And, exactly how did they "legally" finagle their way to evade the legally mandated 1300 sq foot limitation for their new mega-house? Come on. Give us some real detailed info about how they grossly evaded local zoning "laws". Bet they had a heck of a good team of sleazy real estate lawyers.

Huh. I had opposite reaction to the above poster.
Thank you to the author and family for sharing the story of the remodel of this fascinating house. I’d like to know more! It really appeals to me.
I was wondering why only a 1300 sq ft (new) structure was quoted as being allowed in LAH - that is much smaller than most LAH homes -
