Lloyd House was the featured builder in Builders of the Pacific Coast. Michael McNamara, who introduced me to Lloyd in the first place, just sent me these really nice photos he took of Lloyd's Leaf House. Michael says: "…I had an occasion not long ago to take some photos of the interior of Lloyd House's Leaf House…. It has always impressed me as such a perfect little place. So complete. So minimal. Right now it's uninhabited… But it doesn't feel empty or raw. Very peaceful and complete, even without the usual trappings of living. Just a few cushions and anyone could move in. It's being maintained rather well as part of the park. Thought you might be interested in seeing a different angle." (Note how the ridge beam (found on beach) cantilevers way past its supporting post.)

I would dearly love to know where Lloyd House lives now and if he has a contact address - I knew , and worked with him a long time ago and have since lost contact.
