This design is based off a house on Oahu called the Frank and Mary Bechert Residence (Manoa, O‘ahu). It is a great example of a picturesque Tudor-revival residence. This style of house appeared in the islands in the late 1920s-early 1930s, and it is one of a dozen which remain in Honolulu. It has lava rock features, open and enclosed rear lanai, and a sleeping porch, all of which were characteristic of homes in Hawai‘i during this time. The home was designed by architect Thomas Gill who established an office in Honolulu in 1898.
