I for one, like it. Is it pure FLW - no. Is it better than 99.999% of new houses being built today - YES. Someone mentioned the floor color...on my calibrated monitor they look correct. Someone mentioned the drywall/plaster. I'd like to see an occasional wood clad wall, but most usonians to me are t...

You can teach "expertise and historical knowledge" you can't teach "goofy enthusiasm." Maybe what she really meant was a fun, out-going people person rather than a shrinking introvert. Which would you rather have on a tour?

Here I go again, getting myself in trouble. I also don't think that "drink the kool-aid" at this point and time in our vernacular really has any reference to Jonestown. According to Wikipedia: "The idiomatic expression, “drinking the Kool-Aid�, was originally a reference to the Merry Pranksters,...

To add to Paul's reply above... There are going to be perhaps hundreds of things that are going to affect your trying to match a color from a photograph. Colors fade over time, then someone takes a photo; depending on the temperature of the light, the color is going to change. In post processing of ...

There is no more legacy program. That is not a possibility. It was discontinued about 1 year ago if memory serves.

So are we to assume that any design involving triangles and parallelograms is a rip-off of haynes? Shouldn't that properly be a rip-off of FLW's design for haynes? Or are you saying that haynes did the design.

It's not an "exact similarity." It might be close, but it's not exact. How do you know....maybe FLW stole it from something Green designed first? Also, it might not be covered under any applicable copyright law as it could be considered a "derivative" work. And there's no sense in getting upset, bec...

Let's see...from personal experience... My former home in Roanoke VA, built in 1922 had steel colums in the basement supporting a steel beam which in turn supported the joists for the first floor. My former home in Birmingham AL, circa 1991 had an almost identical arrangement in the basement/garage....

If you do a google search for "benjamin moore hc-35" one of the links will show you a color chart.

Only thing I can say is Wright is wrong.

Are you sure it was FLW who wrote that? Maybe an apprentice?

Mark Hertzberg Lecture - Louisville

Just got back from the above lecture. It was very good. Mark is a great speaker, and his photos are magnificent.

If you get the chance to hear him speak, go.

Thanks Mark...
