A client purchased a tiny nineteen teens house on the border of Highland Park and Cypress Park , probably built as a temporary house for a railroad workers a century ago. It was constructed of boards and battens - no studs in the walls - meaning the siding was literally holding up the roof.  Scroll to the bottom to see where we started. Although technically a remodel, there's nothing left of the original structure...well other than the original outline of the building. It's an efficient and economic one bedroom house. Everyone who walks in says "we need more of these in L.A.". With 12' ceilings in the living room, it feels commodious and pleasant inside.
