9723 Santa Clara DR – Santa Clara

Perhaps an individual’s innovative solution to the postwar housing problem, this unusual house is constructed of two city buses, placed parallel, and joined by a gabled, wood framed section which contains the entry to the living room. A flat-roofed, frame garage has been added to the east side. One bus contains a bedroom and bathroom, while the other contains a bedroom and kitchen; interior bus lights have been converted and are still in use. Research has not turned up a conclusive history; the house may have been constructed by WC. Rice, property owner from 1952 to 1978.
