Ridiculous. Its just a freaking house. There's nothing really historic or special about it. How come we Americans make something so "special" out of a house that a wealthy person lived in. And this is not an anti-wealth post as I have enough wealth. Its just a statement about the ridiculousness of using materials items to create "historical significance."
Like or not like Steve Jobs, Steve was right in this case and the group focused on preserving this house is completely out of their sane and sensible mind.
The Jobs family's predicament is infuriating. Who in the general public is ever going to see the place anyway??? It's private property! Let him make a compilation DVD of the house with old and recent photos and movies...Put it in the hallowed Woodside Community Museum and be done with it! At least then whoever wants to see, can!
"Uphold Our Heritage"...I understand their "labor of love' but they are wrong and should be responsible for their own attorney bills.
Very disturbing. All he wants to do is build a smaller, more modest, energy efficient home on that lot.
The house is a monstrosity. 17k square feet, uneven floors, something like 15-17 bedrooms?, each room at a different level, bedrooms all in a separate wing, etc.
This is such a shame. I feel bad for Steve on this one.
