There are a host of reasons why homeowners look to increase the size of their home.

Travel to Northern California by sea and the beauty begins in San Francisco with the splendor of the Bay, which continues through the splendor of a land of mountain lakes, rivers, and fields. It was the native Indians who long ago arrived from Asia to Alaska on their way to this region of the country. Until 1770 when Gaspar de Portola's expedition relocated north to the San Francisco Bay from San Diego and Mexico, the San Francisco Bay was undiscovered by white settlers.
As the result of the frequent fog on the sea Mariner Juan Cabrillo, who was exploring Alta California missed the San Francisco bay in 1542. Although adventurous mariners had always followed the inland rivers into the Sierra Nevada Mountains to prospect of gold or simply to explore, San Francisco always had a mystic attraction.
Many Eastern pioneers had made the wearisome overland journey to Northern California through the mountains, deserts, and sometimes snow. In 1826, the first was a man named Jedediah Smith who was leading a party trapping furs from Santa Fe. He was following the Truckee and Humbolt Rivers to the Sacramento River.
Pioneers starting arriving the foothills and the valleys and foothills. Until 1770 when Gaspar de Portola's expedition traveled north from San Diego and Mexico to find San Francisco Bay. In 1839, at the confluence of the Sacramento and American Rivers, by man named John Sutter developed New Helvetia. Because Sacramento was located on a flood plain, there were few trees. Prior to them erecting levees, in 1849 and 1850, the settlement was flooded.
Pioneering settlers migrating to the West arrived overland in consider numbers. However, most went to Oregon in 1841. Charles Weber and party of Bidwell/Bartleson followed the Humbolt River and located a pass to the San Joaquin Valley through the Sierra and down the Stanislaus River. In 1844, Kit Carson traveled the Sierra up the Carson River and onto El Dorado, California and followed the American River’s South Fork to Sutter's Fort. This party had been advised by the Indians to keep on the crest of ridges in order to avoid the deep snow in the ravines.
In 1846, Brigham Young's Mormon settlers were escaping from the Midwest and were traveling towards California and crossed the Missouri River for winter lodging in Omaha. Some 500 men trained at Leavenworth after volunteering for the Mexican War. In 1847, the Mormon Battalion came to the San Diego Mission. Later that same year the Battalion was mustered out of service; A portion went to Salt Lake and a portion went to Fort Sutter. In 1847, when Brigham Young came to Salt Lake the pioneering settlers stayed there.
In 1846, a man whose name was James Marshall was in the American Military in Los Angeles and became the carpenter in chief. In 1847, because he wants to see the location for a sawmill for John Sutter, he travels Sutter's Fort. Later that same year work started at Coloma on the American River’s South Fork, at what is currently known as the County of El Dorado. Then, the Mormons who were located at Fort Sutter were employed to work at the sawmill.
When Mr. Marshall completed the observation at the sawmill, the story of gold turned out to be a reality at Coloma. In 1848, Mr. Marshall located a tailrace of the sawmill located on the South Fork River banks. When the word spread in all of the west, as especially in California, it was a gold rush to the empire county. Although, the news was slow to reach the east, in 1849 the relocation continued by ship or overland trail. In late 1849 alone, some 600 boats arrived at the San Francisco Bay. By the end of 1849, the invasion into California was some 42,000 overland and 39,000 by sea. The first river steamship, the George Washington traveled up the river and, in the middle of 1849, arrived at Sacramento.
Under the direction of Captain Weber, a group of Indians used crude tools to obtain gold from Weber Creek in the middle of 1848. While herding cattle just over the ridge, some two miles away some Spaniards came across the rich dry excavation of what is currently known as Placerville. Soon joining them were some Oregon prospectors.
Some 10,000 men were camping in in narrow ravines and hundreds more ravines from all around the world had already left Dry Diggings in 849, with some $10,000 worth of gold. After some five criminals from the local Owls Gang raided a French Swapping Post in the Mother Lode mining district the nickname Hangtown stuck. They were flogged some 40 times, with 39 being fatal for their trouble. Three of the men were established to be fugitives and were wanted for homicide and were tried by a jury of their peers and hung by the neck until they were all dead by some 2000 mining men at an Oak Tree next to Hangtown Creek.
