Wright didn't design this service station. He only did some minor interior renovations to an existing building.

If you have ever been on the tour of the May House; you have surly seen the video of the restoration the house underwent. You can be sure that it was NOT done for a mere $3 Million.

I painted my living room with it and it looks great. When you go to a PPG dealer you will need to ask for each color by the number not the name be...

Ah Hah! I have been enjoying this wonderfull site for quite a while now without fail.

I have called Lawrence Tech a couple of times to see about touring the house (Affleck) and each time they have told me that it is under renovation and not open for tour at present time. Do you have any idea when or if tours of the house are possible?

Robie House

I am traveling to Chicago this weekend and I was wondering if anybody knows the status of the Robie House. I toured it about 2.5 - 3 year ago and the exterior was completed (looked amazing) but the inside was gutted. I was wondering if I sould see it again now or not yet.

Also, Joel Silver owns Wright's two Cherokee Red Lincolns. He showed them at last years Concours de Elegance at Pebble Beach, but I believe he keeps them a...
