The house was built in 1954. However, this front is an extension that was done in 1962 to expand the dining space and the kitchen.
The "Californian" model is an "L" shaped house.
Cliff May signature features include clerestory windows, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, board & batten siding, wide eaves, and post and beam construction.
Open concept living in 1954!
Open beam ceilings were a feature of the Cliff May designed ranchos.
The kitchen cabinets were original to the 1962 remodel. The countertops, the backsplash and appliances were the only recent updates.
The living room and hallway cabinets are original birch panelled pieces.
