Description
The house was built in 1940-1941 as a very small house, only 16x20. Frey added on to the house in 1948 and 1953. The first addition consisted of an additional living/sleeping area and an indoor/outdoor wading pool surrounded by corrugated metal walls and planted with many tropical plants. The 1953 addition was for the unique second floor sleeping area-- a circular room with porthole-style windows and a hanging staircase. Frey also added a curved metal and fiberglass wall surrounding the main pool.
