In order to be accessible to a car without extensive excavating for a driveway, the garage addition would have had to be angled as we see it -- or placed at

I cannot find an interior photo of the house, other than a small black-and-white in Storrer which does not show the dining room casework. The floor plan has

Thank you. Storrer credits Howe with the family room and dining room additions; he says of the garage -- and "a smaller building on the same property, mimicking the main house" -- only tha ...

Thanks, JMD -- I appreciate that clarification. Matt, the projecting sill course gives the final bit of articulation to the forms, doesn't it. The projection doesn't appear on the elevation drawings ...

Thanks, Mike. Crisp and well-exposed photos of a crisp brick-and-wood Usonian. Wikipedia displays a photo which shows a Wright light-pole rising

Great photos, anyway, Mike. We haven't been treated to descriptive photos of the house of this quality, til now. Thanks ! Any more ?

Let's hope all is well. Keep us informed, please . . .

An extension of the wing, a bump-out at second level supported by posts and a beam, is perhaps an addition ? The support seems a bit ad hoc. Other
photos we've seen show a vertical unit with door ...

Not Wright -- at all -- but these two Teco pieces caught my eye on a recent Antiques Roadshow.

Aha -- I hadn't noticed that; the curve is apparent at least in the photo where it casts curved shadows on the block walls. Because the piece seems to be continuous, I would suppose that the floor s ...
