For this humble home for the Griffiths, Belluschi applied his signature Northwest modern style, using Douglas fir ceilings that extended beyond the exterior walls to create rain-protecting and shade-producing eaves. The plan, which was published in Life Magazine, could expand from one room to four as a family grew, and be built for around $7,000.

The couple lived in the rectilinear home with a sloped roof on Pine Valley Road for more than a half century. When Arthur sold the property after Lucy died, Tim Mather of MCM Construction dismantled it into 2,000 pieces, which he numbered and measured, and then moved the house to save it from being demolished.
