Ach, Aluminum Garage Doors

The Los Angeles Times profiles a Paul Williams-designed home ("American Colonial Revival with an English influence") on South Alta Vista Boulevard, a property owned by producer David Willis. Located in the Miracle Mile North district, the home recently caught fire, but Willis promises he's going to restore the home " back closer to the original," according to the story. And the LA Conservancy will be watching-- there have been modifications to the home previously. "Preservationists have taken issue with recent modifications to the detached garage-apartment building, a simple, utilitarian structure with dormers and a steeply sloping roof. In October, the city Department of Building and Safety ordered Willis to seek retroactive approval when he violated city code and installed an aluminum garage door without permission." [LAT]
