Re: Parkwyn Village ~ McCartney Residence for Sale

Great to hear from you John, it’s been a while. Thanks again for opening your home to the Grand Rapids FLWBC Conference tours. I look forward to seeing how the soapstone stove is assembled/disassembled. This is a link to another McCartney thread: http://wrightchat.savewright.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=...

There are more photos of the Aitken house at this link:

These photos were made in 2006 at the time the house was for sale.

Re: Article on Wright Houses in St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, Michigan

During the Grand Rapids FLWBC tour in 2013, the Schultz house and the TAA designed Warren house were open to the Conference attendees. Susan Jacobs Lockhart was on the same tour bus as Christine and me and noted that the Warren house's designer David Wheatley was “her ex”. Pat Mahoney's description ...

Was there any mention of the dearly departed Snowflake Motel in St. Joseph designed by Wes Peters of TAA for Sahag Sarkisian? https://www.claasshaus.com/blog/updated-the-snow-flake-motel Christine and I spent a night in this lost gem during a 1999 road trip...despite years of little maintenance, it ...

Re: Should there be a new social media closed group for Wright?

If the President’s behavior, at the very least over the last six weeks, and certainly his insurrectionist speech yesterday, goes unaddressed or unchallenged, we will set ourselves up for a repeat of this behavior either by this or another leader in the future. The President’s later statement, which ...

Re: Should there be a new social media closed group for Wright?

“ BLM do nothing but scream, set fires, loot...”
I can't sit idly by with that statement.
That is NOT true. Those that resort to violence, looting, or destruction are a very small minority and not representative at all of BLM.

Words matter...use them carefully and accurately.

Re: Lake Geneva Frank Lloyd Wright look-alike demolished

Say what you will about the siting, massing, and formal composition of this house, but in terms of materials and assemblies and millwork, a long time will pass before we see this level detail and craft. That none of the cabinetry was salvaged is a sin.

Re: Archives to Avery Library/ Columbia University

Indeed it does...I typed Wright Hageman and found preliminary sketches and final CD’s for the unbuilt 1948 Arthur Hageman house. Hageman was the first version of the plan type Wright used for the Sweeton house...Schaberg was derived from this plan type as well, but the as built Schaberg version evol...

Re: Louis B. Fredrick House- 1957

This house was on a FLWBC tour in the Spring of 2017. It is sited at an elevation considerably above the road with a significant amount of foliage between the house and road rendering it all but hidden from the road. I'd venture a guess that even with leaves off the trees, the house is not visible. ...

Thanks for finding the previous thread, David. I like having the threads tied together.
I tried a few search terms and nothing surfaced other than ET Casey's obituary thread.

Estes Park Visitors Center by E. Thomas Casey/TAA

I was surprised this visitors center, part of the NPS’s Mission 66 program, and now a national historic landmark in its own right, did not have a Chat thread. Designed by E. Thomas Casey of TAA, the building is constructed of conventional and CorTen steel framing clad with CorTen steel panel and pre...

Re: Davy Davison

This a new one to me:
https://tennesseemodernism.com/2020/10/ ... son-cabin/
A neat design to say the least, and apparently available for vacation rental.

It has a construction date of 1968-9...was this project on the boards at TAA during the tenure of Rood or wjsaia?
