2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)
Video tour: www.RockReachHouse.com/video
This one-of-a-kind home was built in 2009 and was featured in the April 2010 Dwell magazine. Each room offers large sliding glass doors that lead out to decks and patios for a marvelous indoor/outdoor living experience. Top-of-the-line appliances and home theater A/V system and high-speed Internet.
The house sits amidst a jumble of fantastically weathered granite boulders in a national park-like setting in the private community of Rock Reach in the Town of Yucca Valley. Taken together, the house and the setting offer a high desert escape second to none.
Why the Owner Chose Yucca Valley: I fell in love with this unbelievable property when I discovered it in 2003. After I bought it I struggled to figure out how to build a small, sustainable home on the property without destroying the very attributes that drew me to the property. That's what led me to what is now the Blue Sky Building System that lets homes sit very lightly on the land. This house demonstrates an entirely new way of building using this revolutionary light-gauge steel frame and a number of other advanced materials and methods. There is no wood in the house except cabinets and a couple of interior doors.
The Unique Benefits of this House: Although this home is less than an hour and a half from the heart of Los Angeles it feels as if it is on the other side of the moon. There is a profound sense of seclusion and connection to nature in this spectacular setting. I very much enjoy sitting outside and being part of the remarkable nature. I also enjoy sitting in the cowboy soak tub after long hikes in the vast surrounding Mojave desert. I feel like I am in my own private national park.

About Dave McAdam
I started my professional life as a print journalist, eventually serving in a variety of corporate PR and marketing executive roles. As a Southern California native I have long had a passion for the deserts of California -- especially the Mojave Desert. That passion led me to buy this property and that in turn changed my life as I set out to find a way to build on this land without destroying it. When I found the solution to that problem I also found a whole new professional calling. Now I'm a passionate evangelist helping others build more efficiently and sustainably through my company, Blue Sky Building Systems.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We LOVED everything about the house! Every detail was appreciated...my friend was freaking out over the Heath Ceramics :)
I can just tell you that you couldn't have had girls that truly appreciated and loved the house more than us! We really enjoyed looking at the stars out on the porch, drinking a beer in the soak tub and the having speakers play music throughout was magical! I'm sure you haven't been to the house, but we left a thank you note and a succulent, it was just prefect and we are so glad you decided to share this home with us! It was very very well stocked for a rental and that made it feel like home! The style was us in a nutshell!
Thank you Dave!!! I hope you get more renters who love it as much as we do!
