Wood House

-A A +A
1937. 3803 Adams Ave.

One can almost read the thin two-by-four stud wood frame of this white stucco two-story Streamline Moderne house as a cube. The stairway is to the left of the entrance and is lighted by a narrow, elongated corner window. Attached to the other side of the two-story box is a single-floor garage.
