Updated William Mellenthin Book

New Mellenthin Birdhouse Book Available Now!

This edition features more pages, more photos, and more information!

We have been contacted by dozens of people wanting to a copy of the book, A Birdhouse in Paradise: William Mellenthin and San Fernando Valley Ranch Homes. It sold out about a year ago. Great News! We have a new, updated edition.

This version includes information on William Mellenthin’s son, Mike Mellenthin. Mike built Birdhouse ranch homes just like his father. He graduated from USC with a degree in engineering. Mike was a perfectionist who wanted his homes to be perfect in every way. And so they were.

More information about father and son working together in the San Fernando Valley. More photographs featuring Mellenthin homes. Exclusive, never-before-seen photographs of  the Mike Mellenthin home that he worked on with famed architect, Cliff May. Don’t miss out! Also an interview with Mike Mellenthin.
