Who doesn't dream of owning a second home at the beach? Well, in the early 1960s, it was a snap even for the working class. All you needed to move in was a key and some groceries. Each house came complete with furniture, appliances, a 45-piece Melmac dinner service, plastic glasses, and fifty pieces of stainless-steel flatware, plus towels, napkins, placemats, beds, pillows and sheets, even toothbrushes. The homes also promised low maintenance with redwood siding and interior paneling that never needed painting and had lifetime guarantees. In Leisurama, author Paul Sahre uncovers the mystery of this legendary slice of architectural Americana and lovingly documents its forty-year history with a treasure trove of text, photographs, historical documentation, and oral histories.
