What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cliff May's floor plans are real lessons in design, even though he was self-taught and not a trained architect. The open planning, marriage of inside and outside spaces and movement throughout the home are all orchestrated with great skill. It's as if Frank Lloyd Wright or Mies van der Rohe had relocated to Southern California and become relaxed and laid back in the process.
