The house that Randy Brown built — the one that he eventually began to refer to as “the laboratory” — began as a modest, 1950s ranch.
“It was just this very normal house on 10 acres of land,” said Brown, who bought the secluded home at 5550 McKinley St. with his wife, Kim, in 1999. It was about 1,300 square feet, surrounded by trees and invisible from the road, north of Interstate 680, in the north hills. The home had solid bones and good views but was otherwise unremarkable.
