Re: For sale: Charles and Dorothy Manson house

People say all kinds of things, don't they . . . Lets's look at the orientation. One of many gifts Prof Storrer gives his readers is a north arrow for each plan. Well, the living-room glazing faces south and east---so unless they were talking about early evening daylighting, I'd say this is no wors...

Re: Allen Friedman house - Illinois

(We must get Tom a rubber stamp that says "Never seen or heard of this one before" !) (Mine is back-ordered at Amazon . . .) :D With nearly 1200 projects that Wright did. There is always something unknown or hidden. That's why I love Wright... it's a limitless source of knowledge and inspiration..!!

Re: Allen Friedman house - Illinois

The dining rooms is too small, the kitchen... well I usually hate usonian "workspaces", too small as well, but that's it in this house for me. The alteration...

Re: Glore Residence - Lake Forest

Thanks for the link; for all that's been written about these floors, I've never seen the process on film before. Another new red slab appears at the moved and rebuilt Bachman-Wilson house.
