This weekend residence, which cost $5,300 to build, had an L-shaped plan, with the long part comprised of an attached garage and kitchen. The base of the L contained a large living room to the north and the two bedrooms and bath to the south. As the Architectural Forum observed in its 04/1941 issue: "This very small house shows a distinct Japanese influence, and the impression is accentuated by the magnificent tree which has been incorporated into the plan." The house had sliding, shoji-like doors and a hipped-and-gabled irimoya roof in the manner of Japanese tea houses or temples. Cedar shingles covered the roof. Interior walls were clad in mahogany plywood.
