Out in the middle of the Muckleshoot Indian Reservation-

It's now surrounded by houses and grown trees (as you can plainly see).

Builder Ray Brandes

Here's builder Ray Brandes on the roof. Famed Frank Lloyd Wright had designed Ray and Helen's
nearby Pine Lake home before Ray and I started working together. This lead to some 70 projects
(new and/or remodeling). Lori Ehrig in the Mercer Island Reporter: "Jerry, an architect, has had
a remarkable career. He has designed over 40 houses on Mercer Island island; was instrumental
in starting the AIA Home of the Month, and is listed as a referral on "The Not So Big House" website.
He has worked on over 65 projects with well known builder, Ray Brandes, famous for the Issaquah
home he had commissioned
Frank Lloyd Wright to design".

How do the occupants of housing on an indian reservation obtain it.
Do the rules vary with the reservation/tribe-I guess almost all require and ancestry/blood check and tribal membership, do they rent or own or do they get it free and clear?
