How MCM was my house

I wanted to post a picture of the MCM home I grew up in as a small child in Montclair, CA. I remember it being small with two bedrooms and a bathroom. Since then, it has been stuccoed over and the windows at top have been filled in. Also, there used to be a vertical wood slat fence where the wrought iron and brick job is now. I remember that you couldn't see into the patio from the street, which is between the garage and house. I believe it was always had the garage/carport combination. If I could buy back this house, all that stucco would come down and the windows would reappear. I think the house had wood siding...not sure, but definately know that it didn't have the stucco job it has now. I recall my Mom saying that back then the house seemed cheaply built and that it wasn't well insulated, so it wouldn't stay cool in the summer nor warm in the winter.

Now, I'm not sure who the builder is, but hopefully someone on here can identify it. I heard that there were a few Cliff May immitators, and this may have been built by one, but then again it could be a Cliff May home. I assume it was built in 1954 because that is the year that is stamped on the curb in front of it.
