Looks like the Eppstein house is no longer the least expensive Wright house on the market. The table and rug don't seem to be nailed down and are of little concern. The river adjacent to the property would concern me more. Nice area near Stevens Point.

Don Tosi was a builder of good reputation from Naperville il. He did spend time at Taliesen as a builder, not as architect, and built many homes in the area. His most notable build was the Ford house in Aurora il designed by Bruce Goff. His signature on his homes was an orange front door, many of th...

I checked out a website foamforyou.com . They are very educational about foam products , tho I can't recommend them per se , I haven't seen their work. What I saw on their site backs up most of the advice given so far. If you are truly interested in down filling there is a product out there that red...

Is the primary use to be a seating surface, or sleeping surface? One large piece of foam can be awkward to handle , but more comfortable for sleeping. Multiple cushions are MUCH easier to upholster. With a length of 96 inches , 4 cushions would seem most logical to me. Back cushions are often times ...

While it would be a pleasure to blame the oil industry for this occurrence , I don't believe a quake at the reported depth was caused by fracking. The Acres subdivision is about 3 miles north of the epicenter, just east of 34th. The four Wright designed homes are just off 36th. It would be sad if si...

Nice home. Some of the finishes are curious. The island looks painted or poorly clad. The paneling in the one room seems a bit too traditional.

Walter Burley Griffin was certainly a fine employee that has not yet been mentioned in this thread. To pick one outstanding person seems a folly to me. Especially under the title of employee. Many people were employed by Mr Wright in many capacities, who's to say he wasn't better served by a driver ...

I'm not sure about tear down potential because of its landmark status. As far as neighborhood is concerned it is in an excellent area ( Andersonville ). Close to restaurants , entertainment , train and the lake. I've driven by many times, it really adds architectural diversity to the community.

peterm ,your construction photos are tidier than this attempt at marketing. Once you look past the clutter you can see part MCM, part 1900 era farmhouse. Looks like the remodeling could go a few steps further.
