This structure was built as an experimental house with a steel frame and wood infill. The name comes from the fact that the building is on an eight by eight module vertically and horizontally in order to avoid cutting any lumber. An addition was constructed at 45° to the original layout.  It has been difficult to keep this structure waterproof because of the expansion differences of the materials so old signs were used as flashing on the back side. The last caretaker to live in the canyon lived in this house.
