He was trained in carpentry, woodworking, and home construction.

Umberger was not only skilled at home building and remodeling, he also built furniture and made home d├ęcor items to adorn his homes.

His style incorporated architectural elements of Frank Lloyd Wright, whom he is said to have greatly admired.

Apart from the FLW references, there is a whole lot of fabulous mid-century fun infused in this home.

Look at the plush sea-foam green carpet – perhaps original to the house?

The listing doesn’t specify if the furnishings are retro-inspired, vintage, or original designs of Umberger. But aren’t these pieces fantastic?

Of course, you have a massive rock wall fireplace as the centerpiece of the sunken living room.

There is a den with a vaulted ceiling opposite to the living room.

Nearby is a cozy dining area just off the kitchen.

The kitchen cabinets do not look original – the styling is definitely not 1959 or atomic age in any way.

However, the green patterned carpet in the kitchen is positively groovy!
