We suggested a weekend but I think they were trying to accommodate architects working downtown since bus transportation is needed.

If any Wright chatters are ever traveling through Central Ohio, PM me and we will try to accommodate a tour.

I've been waiting 3 years for our Ted van Fossen built-in sofa to be completed with cushions, so I though I'd share the finished product! https://www.flickr.com/photos/125471081@N02/39713982532/in/album-72157650444413635/ Here is an original photo: https://www.flickr.com/photos/125471081@N02/1441240...

I love the fun you had with my daughter's photo! You can certainly tell the difference between her Canon photographs and my (convenient) iPhone photos. It was Maren's interest in photographing old buildings in ruin that lead us to discovering Gunning/Glenbrow in the first place. Now as a 4th year ar...

Happy New Year everyone! I thought I'd share some of our photos of our first significant snow since moving in. It's incredibly beautiful but bitterly cold outside. We are LOVING the hydronic heated floors! So toasty inside! going forward from this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/125471081@N02/3928736...

What a lovely gift! Off subject, but since David was so kind as to bump old threads after the site came back up, I was exposed to a thread from when you first purchased Lamberson and I really want to comment on the exceptional restoration you and your wife have accomplished! Just beautiful! I love h...

A Beautiful Letter Expressing Thanks.

While the site was done I was fortunate to receive a trove of letters from the Tony Smith estate (luckily he saved everything) but one stands out from the others. Mary Gunning hand wrote the following to Tony Smith just after moving in to Glenbrow in January of 1941: "Dear Tony, I wish you could be ...

Wow I've never seen this thread before but recall how much I admired your finished kitchen from another thread. You and your wife have done such an excellent job at restoring Sweeton!

Do you have a link to the thread with the finished workspace that you might add?

Love the moon shot! The image of the full moon at Glenbrow previously taken was with full foliage so the moon was already high above the horizon. With today's super moon, with the leaves gone, we will see it low as it rises above the horizon. The bright moonbeams cause the skylights to glow and the ...

Thanks SDR! Thrilled to have Wrightchat back! I was worried that the wealth of information found on this site was lost until I contacted SaveWiright! My old log in didn't work and since I have a new email, had to re-register, hence the 1 after my name and lack of a space. We've been still working on...
