Big ooops! My last post "For the record..." should have been posted under Glore...



Sorry for the confusion. Pushed the wrong button.

For the record. One glass wall was moved 13 feet within the footprint of the building to create a "family room". Severe? Patios and decks which were not original were modified. The shape of the deck was changed to represent the pools which were never built. The extended patio and the low brick walls...

RJH, Took another look at the drawings this morning. Builtins are there as is the dining table. Nothing else. And I have the entire set of drawings. Your theory about Glore is what I have always speculated. He either had his own collection or just wasn't interested in Wright's furniture. The low win...

Very interesting information Jim. The owners who sold me the house had told me that there wasn't any furniture designed for the house except for the dining table which was drawn on the blueprints but never built. By the way, in the Adita Monograph, the first floor plan shows a dining table adjacent ...

RJH,



After your last PS about "saving all the old parts" and the library being the core, I am done.



So long,

RJH You either did not understand my post or just skimmed it thereby diminishing anything you had to say. Again, the ceilings were painted white when I bought the house and the amber triangular lights were long gone upon my arrival. Ya can't build the pools because of successive ravine ordinance set...

RJH For the record. Before we bought this house, there was a contract on the building by a developer to tear it down. Thankfully, it fell through. The viability of this house, in this neighborhood, with substandard amenities is very poor. The goal from the begining was to bring the house up to a cer...

Thanks fellas for the positive comments. The line about the TV is perfect... Some history: The people who sold me the house claimed that the triangular lights were originally an amber color before they replaced them with white. I have also seen during renovation that the ceiling color was originally...

After you watch the video of the PL house on You Tube, another video pops up which shows many images of FLWright buildings. It is accompanied by Simon and Garfunkle's "So Long Frank Lloyd Wright". It is wonderful though a bit corny; sound quality is relatively poor as well. By the way, I could not i...

Oh, this is great. I had taken a look at the topic and thought it was spam!

"Shavin" house pictures... Then I thought twice. I've got to get my head out of the gutter as I almost missed these photos.



Great house!

It sounds like this need may be already filled. But, just for the record, I have seen episodes of This Old House that visited custom hardware fabricating shops on more than one occasion. It's been a while but I'm sure that a production assistant from the show would be able to dig up the reference gi...
