Steve Jobs Jackling Home with Photos and History

Original post made by R.Gordon, another community, on Oct 16, 2011

Since very few people really saw what Jobs had to battle since his aquisition of the JACKLING house in 1984 and which few people know he occupied for some 10 years in its delapidated state,while he worked on his projects and inventions.JONATHAN BAEBER,a photographer of some renown shows meticulous details of the home which Jobs wanted to tear down and build. When you see and read the details, it will be clear to most what he thought.
At the same time THE APPLE INSIDER which is free and filled with information on all the projects and news in the San Mateo County area and which has some outright wonderful stories about where you live, current issues, and very amusing reading and newsworthy items and is loaded with photos and tons of information.
Back to the house, there are wonderful photos of the owner and copper tycoon and of architect WHITE who built this 17,500 foot house which the HERITAGE SOCIETY fought Jobs who has some amusing comments which have never been printed before.

Correction on the spelling of photographer.I accidently put in the letter "B" instead of "H"........His name is Jonathan Haeber and it is well worth the visit to the San Francisco Chronicles SFGate site.
Some with a sense of humor will have a great laugh.
People have been calling me on all phones and family members as well.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
