Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1973
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-220).
Significance: The Red Rest Cottage and the adjoining Red Roost Cottage are rare survivals of the typical southern California, vernacular, early bungalow. The Red Rest has a remarkable single-wall structural system. The weight of the building is almost entirely carried on the exterior tongue-and-groove siding. These modest but festive buildings enjoy a spectacular site at the cove in La Jolla.
