Constructed with celery top pine, the house was designed for the family of the architect, Leon Jenkins, and his three boys.

Designed as two separate buildings, linked with the entry and stair to upper-level bedrooms and mezzanine lofts, the house was conceived as a beachside house on a minimal budget.

The house continues to serve as the office of the architect.
