Thank you David.
I've been monitoring the site. I'm glad to be back.

Back to the subject, I hope to gather more info on the design. There are some areas of questioning that I can't tell.

Below is my, work in progress, model of the Call Building. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/613/22432211922_603c525033.jpg https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5792/22445495385_0b15d424df.jpg https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5667/22258682919_6073b78658.jpg https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5800/22419518406_a0566...

SDR I have a drawing of the fascia and 8" tall (with a 1/2" overhang) but inside 5" for light deck. I just went back to the drawing to clarify.
Also the board and batten is capped at the top with a 1/2" mahogany moulding.
The home also has some neat towel racks.

Pink- the color of the 50's.
It's seen in a few Wright homes of the 50's but the pinks were subtle.
I think Ablin has seen a paint job though.

John- I have done 4 to 5 I think at least.
Price Tower is still a work in progress, and that one has been a hard one to tackle.

Tom the heat works just fine from what I hear.

No windows on that wall that you see, it's the guest room. I actually had to redo the floor plan numerous times after finding out Storrer really wasn't right in many spots. There was, however, a planned grill on the outside and fireplace inside in the master bedroom, it was taken out in the final de...

This is not the finished project but more of a teaser. I started redoing the model on August 16 and little by little, like a puzzle, it has been worked on.

I think this is a perfect home to be moved to an area that is becoming a focus of architecture design. Also you have within a 2 hour and 45 minute drive to Bartlesville's Price Tower and then in at least,I guesstimate, a 5 hour drive to Wichita from Bentonville, the Allen-Lambe House. It completes t...

The light fixture to the ceiling in the living room, including the furniture is just all beautiful. I really never thought Wright rustic was real, well in Fir Tree it is definitely rustic when compared to other homes of a rustic nature.

Italy, a peninsula? I think the area it will be located is not near water.
Can we keep it in the U.S? Like let's move it just a few inches on the
original site. It would be sacrilegious and utterly wrong to move it somewhere else beyond the U.S. There has to be a solution out there
and cheaper too.

Would be cheaper to build a dike and regrade the house?
Maybe we could have it rebuilt like the now demolished home in Mississippi.
I guess one could move it back but what is the cost?

Call it based on a proposed design, that would be a better way of putting it.
