A colossal faux Craftsman-style house in that it utilizes
concrete blocks cleverly imitating natural stone. One cannot help but admire this house's powerful horizontal layout and street presence.
Raymond N. Hockenberry (1876-1951) moved to Portland in 1905, a perfect time for an architect, considering the building boom about to explode in Portland at the time. He designed the Crater Lake Lodge (1911-1915), and he made a career of building personal homes, living in them for a year, then moving on to a new one. He lived in Irvington for three years, then moved his family to New York in 1916.
