Frank L. Hope & Associates 'The FutureCraft Home' of 1959

Gifford Construction’s 'The Futurecraft Home' designed by Frank L. Hope & Associates (with John Mock as designer) in partnership with Chambers Steel Co. John R. Mock served as the staff member who led the design (his rendering is below). The home, held open to the public, garnered significant press attention and visitors.

This, the first light-steel house constructed in San Diego County, was published in San Diego & Point Magazine in March 1959. The house is located at 4196 Eastridge Drive in La Mesa.
