This custom-made complex was designed as a working ranch to be run, in part, by the owner’s church. The majority of the complex would be residential, serving as a private retreat for the owner and their guests.

The plans called for an architectural design and “ethic” for these structures to appear as if they were part of the early 1900’s Victorian influenced farm buildings.

Horizontal sliding and corrugated “curly iron” roofing, with an acid washed finish, and new paint coverings, provided an antiquated feel of the property. The site was connected with a 5’ wide wooden sidewalk as part of the “Old West” style of planning and architecture.
