Re: FLW Disney-fied

Re: Armstrong House for sale

The wooden "bas-relief" mural is designed by John Howe, I believe, and manufactured by owner, if I am remembering correctly. But, it's been awhile.

I'm also a social media agnostic, and don't belong to any of them (I've likely lost out on connections as a result, but still). But I've also been tempted to join instagram, but since it's owned facebook, I just assume that it's corporate ethos, if not equal to its parent company's, can only trend i...

Yes, the drawer fronts are spaced out with fixed panels between them.

The fixed panels line up vertically with the fixed panels that separate the sets of doors for the cabinets below, when there are cabinets below the drawers.

Regarding the drawers: At our house, for the drawers with flush fronts and no hardware, a groove is carved out on the bottom of the drawer, on the back side of the drawer front (and thus unseen). You grip the drawer there and pull open. Not sure if he keeps this approach with later homes; ours is pr...

Is it true that only 30 out of ~250 Adler-Sullivan buildings remain today?

What does that ratio look like if we consider Sullivan's output after the partnership dissolved?

This is a beauty. The wood has never been painted. The roof is the cedar shakes that Jones was calling for at that time. The flagstone looks to be in wonderful shape (oh to live in a warmer climate where freezing is rare!). The only significant change I can detect is the railing around the deck. Tha...
