the visual of the 2450 reminds me of some of Jones & Emmons experiments for Eichler in the San Mateo Highlands.

I too have recently found the architect of our house listed on this site.
I was able to contribute some photos of our place to be included in his .

We purchased the in December 2007.

Thanks,
Brian

venting about amateur architects.

LL- Here's one of my latest Google "Knols" venting about amateur architects.

Home design is a complex process- combining practicality as well as aesthetic
taste- I've made this art my architectural speciality over these many years. J-

I'd love to see this. Also our 1955 home was supposedly shown in Sunset
about then. Original owner Wamba, architect Hawley Dudley, Seattle. See
my jgWebSite (below). Jerry

I scanned it for you. This is from Sunset Ideas for Remodeling Your Home, 1969.
