Ali S. 9 years ago Reply My soon to be Grandfather-In law is Don Hustad. He still lives in this home of which he designed in the 1940s. The house is still breathtaking and I feel very blessed that these pictures are not only featured in Life Magazine but they are of amazing family I am about to become a part of. Tracy Hustad Hall 9 years ago Reply I am the little girl in the photos. My father, Don Hustad, designed the home in the mid 1950’s and yes the home still stands and the creator still lives there- the photos are of our family and neighborhood friends. Fun to see again. doug anderson 5 years ago Reply hi tracy this is doug Anderson I hope you are great.
