STUNNING, ABSOLUTELY STUNNING JOHN!!! I celebrate every time I go by. You have made the Ravine Bluffs subdivision complete and have finished the most unique house of the Ravine Bluffs lot--based on a rectangular plan rather than square.

I had seen the home from a distance previously and was happy to be close and upfront today. It looks like a coiling...

John:

Nice job on the front porch of Goodrich! It was fun to visit two years ago and talk with the nice owners. The progress since that time is very noticeable. The inside was coming along well when I visited and I am sure it has moved forward in a meaningful way.

Another Wright work restored!
