Paul Weidlinger built this summer house for his family in Wellfleet Massachusetts 1953-54. I came across these images and was impressed with the structure. Digging a little deeper, I found that the house has a great history. This house was vacant and in danger of demolition since the late 1990s. In 2012 CCMHT (The Cape Cod Modern House Trust) obtained a lease and has begun restoration which was concluded summer 2014. I love how the house floats on its structure amongst the trees. It was so nice to read the story of this home and find that it was restored by people from every walk of life.

Volunteers at all skill levels have played an essential part in the restorations as have suppliers of materials and services who have, through donated or discounted goods and services made the work possible on very limited budgets.
