Similar to the parametricists, the importance of shape rules too much in the archibabble description. Once they simplified to become a house, it really is no more responsive than say, a Usonian. You add windows where the sun shines, you'll get sun inside..pretty simple. Not sure all the build up is ...

I have often wondered if the desk that the Cliff Dwellers offered Sullivan to work on his writing still existed. Guess it does. I Would love to see this exhibit.

With the low profile wire fence that the owners had installed, there is no real issues with taking a spin up the driveway to get a quick look, in fact they told me that was part of the intent. Flying a drone, inside the fence is what I believe to be invasive and simply rude, and most likely trespass...

It is, as Henry noted, a long driveway from the street. The point I think, is that it being a private residence, that this is pretty bold to think this was OK to do. I left a message on Mr. Masek's youtube page to remove, since a private residence.

I noticed a drone a few weeks ago flying level with my second floor windows along the canal, (along the Fawcett Trail..) I'm in the process of having redwood shutters extend to the clerestories upstairs.

I know that mixing aniline dye with denatured alcohol is a popular restoration use for higher end arts and crafts furniture, because this method can avoid the term "refinished" with "color added to original finish".. The problem is that it fades fairly quickly when exposed to sun. It would seem that...

Comforting, I suppose, to see I'm not the only one getting water in under the sills. Our corners windows are butted, with silicone...in one corner lots of silicone since there has been some drift, where the windows just barely meet now. I have to remove the wood stops to reset, not a difficult task....
