The “Cubby” started out as a single car garage before being converted and expanded into an eclectic one-bedroom cottage. It was designed for his own property by Bernard Maybeck, a renowned architect associated with the Arts and Crafts movement in the San Fransisco Bay Area. When the 1923 Berkeley fire destroyed the family house, along with several hundred other homes, the Maybecks turned to tiny house living. Bernard Maybeck designed a one-room studio for his son Wallen to live in while the rest of the family took up residence in a tiny cottage that was moved onto the property. Not many people are fortunate enough to live in a Bernard Maybeck-designed home, but this one can be rented for vacation stays through Airbnb
