Even though her relationship with Jobs was sporadic, Brennan soon moved in as well.
This made for a set of living arrangements worthy of a French farce.
The house had two big bedrooms and two tiny ones.
Jobs, not surprisingly, commandeered the largest of them, and Brennan (who was not really living with him) moved into the other big bedroom.
"The two middle rooms were like for babies, and I didn't want either of them, so I moved into the living room and slept on a foam pad," said Kottke.
They turned one of the small rooms into space for meditating and dropping acid, like the attic space they had used at Reed.
It was filled with foam packing material from Apple boxes.
"Neighborhood kids used to come over and we would toss them in it and it was great fun," said Kottke,
"but then Chrisann brought home some cats who peed in the foam, and then we had to get rid of it."
Living in the house at times rekindled the physical relationship between Brennan and Jobs, and within a few months she was pregnant.
"Steve and I were in and out of a relationship for five years before I got pregnant," she said.
"We didn't know how to be together and we didn't know how to be apart."
When Greg Calhoun hitchhiked from Colorado to visit them on Thanksgiving 1977, Brennan told him the news : "Steve and I got back together, and now I'm pregnant, but now we are on again and off again, and I don't know what to do."
Calhoun noticed that Jobs was disconnected from the whole situation.
He even tried to convince Calhoun to stay with them and come to work at Apple.
"Steve was just not dealing with Chrisann or the pregnancy," he recalled.
"He could be very engaged with you in one moment, but then very disengaged. There was a side to him that was frighteningly cold."
When Jobs did not want to deal with a distraction, he sometimes just ignored it, as if he could will it out of existence.
At times he was able to distort reality not just for others but even for himself.
In the case of Brennan's pregnancy, he simply shut it out of his mind.
When confronted, he would deny that he knew he was the father, even though he admitted that he had been sleeping with her.
"I wasn't sure it was my kid, because I was pretty sure I wasn't the only one she was sleeping with," he told me later.
"She and I were not really even going out when she got pregnant. She just had a room in our house."
