If they don't sell this I wonder if they'd rent this out to me for my wedding. Bibs anyone? The Walker Residence is out of a dream.

Rodney Walker was a mid-century modern designer and builder who specialized in residential architecture in the Southern California area. He contributed three designs to Arts and Architecture magazine's Case Study House program during the late 1940s (Case Study House #16, #17, and #18).
Many of his homes were photographed by Julius Shulman for Arts & Architecture magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, Architectural Record, Sunset, and the Los Angeles Times Home magazine.
Rodney Walker was born in Ely, Nevada, on September 15, 1910. He attended Pasadena City College before transferring to University of California Los Angeles where he graduated with a degree in art. In 1937, Rodney and his wife Dorothea built their first house in West Los Angeles. Soon after, he went to work for Rudolf Schindler as a draftsman. Over the next thirty years, Rodney designed and built some 100 homes in Southern California. Rodney Walker died in 1986 at his home in Ojai, California.
