SDR asked if we plan to be in the G-W House long enough to replace the trellis feature over the lanai. That depends on which one wears out first-the roof or me. :-) The roof featured in the 1989 issue of Old House Journal is still just fine. Minor repairs to the membrane from storm debris are all th...

RE Doors/Closet Doors in the Goetsch-Winckler House: All closet and wardrobe doors are the same plain style. The vertical handles are ever so slightly tapered toward the base to facilitate opening. The two bedroom doors and bathroom door are just standard doors, certainly old, and the hardware is as...

Can anyone post or send me a link to the photo of the Goetsch-Winckler first bedroom/shelf as seen in the Pomegranate book? To SDR, yes, the bedroom bookshelf does appear to be original. I'm traveling but will be at the G-W House in early November and can take any photos you request to answer questi...

Two bedrooms and the studio at the Goetsch-Winckler open into the lanai. Turning on all three table lamps in the large bedroom at the north end of the house casts a pleasant glow into the furthest end of the lanai where we sometimes sit in the early evening. We think a bug repelling candle on the ta...

RE "two-toned" wood in kitchen: In early B/W photos of the interior, including some from Life magazine or Getty images, small sections of the bases of the built in desk and dining tables appear lighter, as do the battens on the wall and areas of the kitchen cabinets. Someone from Taliesin West who w...

Goetsch-Winckler Photos on Facebook

While Verizon makes some changes here in California, I'm posting photos to the Goetsch-Winckler Facebook page rather than the Flickr feed shown on my website.

RE my expectation of a "dank and stale environment" before visiting the G-W House for the first time...my feelings were based on my idea of visiting a an old house-ANY old house. FLW's designs are timeless. I knew it would be beautiful, but it would still be a historic structure. I tend to be very s...

Thanks to those who took the time to visit my website and read the posts. While I'm not an interior decorator, I'm also not an idiot. :) I agree the matching lamps are wrong, but they were what we had at hand. The house can be very, very dark at night. To paraphrase..."Better to light an ugly lamp t...

Did you ever build the tables inspired by those at the Goetsch-Winckler? Most of the time we use 3 of the 4 tables for dining. Yes, they are meant to simply be pushed next to each other, but in reality, if you're not careful and lean in at the wrong spot, you will find your dinner in your lap! The p...
