By Lisa Boone It's often called the "Hollywood Beach Shack," a weathered residence set across the street from the ocean in an enclave that Clark Gable and Rudolph Valentino once called home. When the Wakemans bought the house a few years, it had been advertised as a tear-down. But inspired by Mark and Sally Bailey's book "Restoration Home," Szu Wakeman chose to make cosmetic fixes and use the art of salvage to remake the home.
