To design and build a contemporary Mediterranean style 4000 sq.ft. three level
hillside view home for a family with three generations living together.


THE SITE
A small difficult steep hillside lot with views of the San Fernando Valley.


THE CLIENT
Craig & Mary Beardsley

THE BUILDER
Two different sized homes were designed for this client.
The larger of the two, Beardsley-Morris I, was selected to go forward with working drawings.
Although working drawings were completed, neither Project was built due to lack of family consensus.
