    I suspect the real reason is the original soils engineers back in the 50s did such a shitty job, that the city wants everybody to over-ex justs as a CYA. Some really bad soils work was done back in the day. Three houses slide in the El Nino of '69, and several have had to do $100K of soil and foundation engineering over the years. We chose our house carefully when we bought it 25+ years ago to make sure it was all built on cut. Still, the city made us over-ex.

    I just got a picture of the completed front door. It's too pretty to put half of it outside

    Closer to the Gamble house than you are willing to admit.
