I have the house on the bottom… anyone else have one?
I have this issue on my coffee table!
Hey David, There’s a great photo in the Atomic Ranch book of this house, just after it was built. I have a house similar to this, but I have a 2-car garage on the front of the lower level, and our entry is right next to the split, not over on the side. That’s where our fireplace is. The main (middle) level is set back from the garage level about 10 feet.
I have the house on the top- anyone know where i could find a copy of this particular mag? Thanks
