Pomona, CA - mangled Cliff May on market

Postby Dan O. » Tue May 20, 2014 9:46 am

Ran across this unfortunate victim today:

I'll never understand how anyone that knows how to nail two pieces of wood together can look at the simplicity of a Cliff May prefab and NOT figure out how to make an addition without it looking completely "Frankensteined" together. I actually looked at this house a while back: it was pretty thrashed but not seriously molested; now it's a prime example of everything a true MCM fan would want to avoid. I hope somebody was able to salvage the original windows.

There must be a mistake. Your post mentioned a Cliff May house but the link goes to the Home Depot showroom.

I did manage to rescue a few windows from this property a few years ago, and I'm happy to say they found good homes in Long Beach and Tustin. I wish I could have found a sympathetic buyer for the house, but alas...
