O.R. Johnson House, Montauk, N.Y.

Like the Spaeth House, the building erected for O.R. Johnson featured wood shingles. Cedar shingles were already used in the late nineteenth century, and because of their weather resistance were typical for buildings near the sea. Further prominent characteristics of the house were a hexagonal tower and a ramp that led from the kitchen to the first floor.
