My 1952 suburban St. Louis ranch which is part of the Ridgewood subdivision. Built by Burton W. Duenke in collaboration with Ralph Fournier. An example from the subdivision was featured in the January, 1953 issue of Better Homes and Gardens as their "Five Star home of the month." Exhibits elements of 1950's prefabrication construction as evidenced in the framing, use of pre-fab closets as partition walls, and site related positioning of each home to accomodate variation in appearance.
