Ralff Somoff, 2017 (SBOH#14)

Ralff Somoff is a longtime Salmon Beach resident and craftsman with a substantial history in the community. He is responsible for the creation of his astonishing cabin — cabin 58 — but as this interview confirms, he was also involved in the construction and repair of numerous other cabins at the beach. Because of our theme this semester, the focus is trained on the history of cabin 58, but he also discusses cabins 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 64, and 92. As a builder himself, he’s also able to talk about some of his projects and constructions in a level of detail that’s unusual in this collection of interviews.
