Section E-E: I would continue both walls and the insulated cavity above the roof to the wall tops: better insulation in the corner of wall and ceiling and a less risky support of the thicker wall above the insulation on a thinner wall.

I seem to remember that the executed Greiner house had an exterior look of a swiss chalet, mostly wood outside. When I see it now on Google street view (corner of Taliesin Drive and Parkwyn Drive) I see a lot of brick. Maybe a later addition?

When I stood there doubting, the owners left by car, stopped beside me, and told me that it was initially a Wright design, but that...

Maybe a hand might fit through the openings to change the light bulbs, but how to install the sockets remains a problem. The three rows of openings look only taller because of the absent horizontal joints: the standard brick courses continue left and right of the openings. What's the effectiveness o...

There are indeed light bulbs behind the brick screen. See: https://lamodern.com/frank-lloyd-wright-sturges-residence/page-1-frank-lloyd-wright-sturges-residence/ High to reach up from the cellar through the 'heating flue' (behind the wooden door) to change the light bulbs?
