Everist House

  • Everist House (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

The extended hipped roofs of this Prairie-style house, coupled with the various porch roofs, virtually nudge the house into its hillside site. The hovering horizontality of the roofs is reinforced by the long bands of casement windows and by the brickwork.
