Historic Oakland Bungalow

From the San Francisco Chronicle – The Bungalow home is not immune from the troubles of economic crisis. As author Carolyn Said writes, “Oakland author and preservation activist Jane Powell has poured blood, sweat, tears and lots of money into restoring her 1905 Arts and Crafts house, a vintage treasure in the Fruitvale district.”  She continues, “But after seeing her income plummet with the economic downturn, Powell fears she will lose the landmark house to foreclosure. Friends are banding together to throw a benefit Feb. 12 at Sunset House, nicknamed for its street.”  Friends are banding together to try to help save the home from its troubles and keep it in the hands of “the perfect caretaker.”
