The room, as has been suggested, may have been meant as an addition to William S. Spaulding's own home.

That's right... not being familiar with Boston, William Spalding's Back Bay city townhouse wa ...

Taliesin's dating would be contradictory (1914? 1919?) without context. Again, I would go by Julia Meech confirming 1914 as the first mention of creating the "room" for Spaulding-or what was ...

Definitely needs the additional fixture in the corner... but maybe detailing is "weighted" a bit to the one side? .... perhaps a full length vertical trim just this side of the fixture with ...

Works nice, Stephen. Possible alternative may be to place the fixtures on the end wall in the space between the adjacent wall and trim, creating a separate arrangement from that with the two either si ...

The monolith is somewhat overbearing, but the treatment of the tombs cascading down the slope is intriguing. The tombs in each section appear to either decrease in length as they ascend, or are symmet ...

Thank you all for the light fixture advice; it's extremely helpful and I'm making changes based upon it. I'm hoping to do an update this weekend.

SDR, those pics of the bare bulb fixtures are exac ...

An apprentice towards "the end", certainly one of the best from the Taliesin orbit. His website mentions him involved with both Marin County and the Guggenheim as well as time with Goff. He' ...

Stephen, the spliced T1 photo was originally a triptych of three pictures taken by Taylor Wooley in 1911, the third having an obvious exposure issue.

Looking good! One nit-pic, no criticism intended....I could be wrong, but the left rail on the open drawer in the corner appears offset from the end, creating a void between the rail and left side of ...

Dang, I'm confused. Some of the lines between T1, 2, & 3 are blurry to me.

Regarding the rooftop elements:
First, I'm not aware that those rooftop elements existed in T1. I've never seen them ...

Jim,
It sounds like you know what you talking about. Because if that stone in both photos it makes sense to me that both views are T3.
On page one of this thread we got onto thinking it was T2. Mad ...

The first plan (.018) is T1, the next (.015) is T2.... you can see that until the fire Wright spent comparatively an inordinate amount of time with the studio/hill spaces and was (understandably) con ...

On another tangent, I've wondered what was this upper level room in T2. It appears in exterior photos. I presume it might've been a fancy guest room. It has various little room/compartments with surro ...

For the record, the two guest room photos are TIII. Masonry appeared for the first time after the 1925 fire when the major alteration of height and stone massing was introduced in the living room-ther ...

That's correct, SDR. It is the green arrow that points to what seems natural to me to be a door rather than a window. A clear image of the Stoller photograph would help, though not necessarily, prove ...
