The cabin, sited in the redwoods, is one of a series of Demonstration Homes by Joseph Esherick that were commissioned by the original developers of The Sea Ranch. These homes were intended to exemplify how the building guidelines could be used to build a well-designed, and in this case, low cost weekend home.
The latest addition, Enough House, provides accommodation for an intern architect to work closely with MacKay-Lyons. The cabin is an essay in economy: space, budget, schedule and aesthetic. It shares the same minimalist ethic as the adjacent, 1830’s schoolhouse.
