This is a different view of the house I posted on March 2nd. As I mentioned previously, it was featured in the 2007 motion picture, I'm Reed Fish. I don't know exactly when it was built but I'm reasonably sure it was long before Big Bear became a popular place to go skiing. It sits on a large piece of land just a short walking distance from Snow Summit Ski Resort and appears to have changed very little since it was built. I'm certain there are numerous developers who would just love to get their hands on this property including one who lives in the McMansion right next door.

Intriguing design. It looks like they added on as time passed. Love the light on the tree on the left, as well as the room on the right.

This is a great house. I love when people break the mold and do something different with their architecture. Nicely done.

I can relate to your quote today! Old Red is in need of paint but that would cover up all that character!! Great capture and compo!
