In a well-publicized incident, a City-owned dump truck driving down Moeser Lane in El Cerrito lost its brakes and ran through this house located on the corner. Not only did the house sustain vehicle damage, but a fire ensued and did a tremendous amount of damage to the home as well. The repairs involved replacing approximately half of the foundation, rebuilding almost all of the home from the ground up, and replacing the entire roof structure. As is typical, the owner elected to make considerable changes to the interior finishes, and virtually every aspect of the interior finish was redesigned, changed, and constructed according to the owner's preferences.
