The Conger House

I have just photographed 832 Oxford Street in Berkeley. This is a beautifully maintained example of the type of house JHT was doing in 1928. It is stucco with steep sloped roofs. The stucco on this house is a warm brown with gold colored pebbles scattered through it. It has never been painted and looks as good as new after more than 80 years. The owners were kind enough to let me borrow the original drawings so I could scan them and post them on the JHT Gallery. Click here to go to the Gallery and see the photos. Then scroll down and click on BLUEPRINTS to see the drawings.
