Updated William Mellenthin Book Coming Soon

New, updated Mellenthin Book coming spring 2022!

This edition will feature more pages, more photos, and more information!

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

This version will include information on William Mellenthin’s son, Mike Mellenthin. Mike built birdhouse ranch homes just like his dad. He graduated from USC with a degree in engineering. His homes were built just like his dad’s. But Mike was a perfectionist, he 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 images of a Mike Mellenthin home he worked on with famed architect, Cliff May. Don’t miss out! Also an interview with Mike Mellenthin.
