The house where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computers has now been given historical status by the city of Los Altos, which means that if any repairs or renovations are to be done on the house, it first has to be reviewed by the commission overseeing the house. Cool, for us, since who would want to be a house of that significance be demolished or changed beyond recognition. Bit it kind of sucks for Patricia Jobs, Steve's sister, who still lives there. She can appeal the decision (which she wasn't a part of to begin with), but that isn't likely. Zachary Dahl, a planner with the city, said that Patricia asked for corrections to be made to Los Altos' evaluation of the property. Yet, when it was sent back to her, she didn't respond. "So I'm assuming that was an affirmative because I have had multiple communications with her over the past several weeks," Dahl said.
That white and blue house at 2066 Crist Drive is where Jobs brought in Apple's first investors, and where he and Woz built the first 100 Apple 1 computers.
