"The house Sparks designed for himself and his family shows what the architect could do when his budget was small. A boxy home with a low, glass-filled gable, the house has open-beams, oddly place windows, and a simple plank deck overlooking the backyard, which originally had a manmade river.
The house has since been extensively remodeled, although it retains many of Sparks' characteristic touches."
