The Red Sky Dream House is featured in The House For Life. This independent site is intended to provide a repository for information and images of the many interpretations of Rattenbury’s House For Life design and for similar homes built along the lines of those expounded in Rattenbury’s recent book bearing the same name. (Do you know where and when the first Life Magazine Dream House was built?)

Graeagle is the quintessential Sierra mountain village. Originally a logging town, Graeagle is now a wonderful boutique shopping village as well as an idyllic setting for local fairs, jazz concerts, and simply lazy afternoon floating on the Old Mill Pond. The area is renowned for its fabulous Sierra golf courses. The Nakoma® Golf Resort, with its 18-hole Robin Nelson-designed Dragon course, challenges even the best of golfers and gives high-handicappers a collection of excuses to share at the beautiful Nakoma clubhouse (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1924). Having a hard time on the undulating greens? No problem, take in the stunning Sierra views and breathe the fresh mountain air, and all will be well. Plumas County is famous for its mountain / meadow majesty. You will find no area in the world more beautiful than the Plumas National Forest Lakes Basin region 20 minutes from Gold Mountain. And so unspoiled and uncrowded like Lake Tahoe used to be decades ago! Read about Plumas County at The Plumas County News. Don't miss the Plumas County Visitors Bureau website!
