By the way the house has a private side courtyard where the entry door is located. Most of these had carports originally and it is sort of 'H' shaped in plan.

This house was actually designed by a well known mid-century California architect A. Quincy Jones of the firm Jones and Emmons. It was called the House that Home Built and it was part of a NBC TV show and a National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) nationwide campaign.

Some Californians might recognize this as an Eichler home from around 1955. Joe Eichler built this home on both sides of the bay.

You can see an article about the house here.

Another version of the article including the plan is available here.

You all are missing the real issue here.... After all, it is Apartment Therapy, not Pet Therapy. The real question is why do you have bath mats?

I love what you are doing on this site, but was surprised to find a copy of a scan I made on your site.

I know you got this image from somwhere else, but it originally came from my flickr site.

I would appreciate a proper credit.
