Just wanted to bump this up since it's next week. See you all there!

PS - We're not going to the home tour on Sat, so please someone take some good photos (if they let you) and share.

it's good. ...for now.

Cliff May Walking Tour

Postby blenderama67 » Wed Mar 21, 2007 11:41 am

I just ordered a couple new batteries for my digital camera, so I will take lots of picts of the four homes that are on the walking tour.

Any special request photos of these Cliff May homes?

We'll be at the lecture as well.

Let me know.

I'm going also...

There is no dress code. I would avoid bare midriffs, cut off jeans, flip-flops, etc. Not that these are prohibited...

Home-boy and I will be there. Booradley said he'd be there, too!

Say hi to us! (I'm the middle-aged one with the limp)

We can't go on the tour, so take pictures!

Egads!

We were in a red Sienna and we both had cameras. So you spotted us. Well done.

O.K. here's a link to my pictures. DH has not taken his off the camera yet. His picts are more detailed than mine. He is interested in the details of the building and I am interested in use of light and space.

Here is my favorite photo....(I got the owner's permission to take this pict)

I also got this pict just as I was leaving the house. Sorry for the blur.
Note the planter in the floor which divides the entrance foyer from the dining room.

It breaks my heart to know Mandalay was torn down. Here is the entrance gate.

The Experimental House is being renovated (fingers crossed) by Marmol Radziner. Most of you know who these guys are if you read Dwell. They are doing a lot of interesting things. They are doing pre-fab out in the desert by Palm Springs. I think the fact that the roof is still telescoping is a good sign. Also, it looks like there is a ridge skylight on the main part of the house.

Oh, and this is the house on page 126 of "Western Ranch Houses" by Cliff May. It's the one with the open roof skylight in the middle of the house.

Did anyone notice 1740 Old Ranch Road? It was not noted as a Cliff May but it had CM details. I loved all the glass. My picts don't do it justice. Did anyone else get better picts?

I hope you guys enjoyed the pictures.

Cheers.:cheers:

The booklet says, "After May's death in 1989, the property was sold."
So I imagine around 1990 or so.

Too bad. :cry:

See, I just got the gender wrong. Your DH and I where kindred spirits, looking at the nuts and bolts. The Mandalay gate actually opened when I was standing there and I didn't even get a picture! Although it did say the original house was up a mile long drive. with such a big lot (acres) you would think they could have had both a new house and the old one....

Thanks for all the photos! I love how Cliff May homes are able to balance traditional and modern so well. We only attended the lecture, but the idea of built-in, indoor planters really stuck with me. I'll have to ask for pics of examples from LL members on the homes thread.
it's good. ...for now.
