Thanks John for elaborating on the list. Glad to hear the chain prevented the sculpture from being swept away. Hope there is no damage to the sculpture. Here is an earlier photo showing the sculpture with the chain: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CioxedcWEAAr3Fb.jpg Knowing that climate crisis is expec...

I especially love the guest interviews with the moment of clarity.

I believe you misread my comment, SDR. NO apologies necessary! I value your comments/suggestions as I do others on here and I share them with Joe. Architects are a stubborn lot and he doesn't always follow them, but he does evaluate the suggestions. In this case, it's too late for the stair off the ...

Certainly your comments are NOT unwelcome, SDR. It's just past the time for that aspect to be changed. There is still an entire tower to restore but we're taking a little time to enjoy our labors as well as living mortgage free before phase 2. I believe it was you who suggested a phase 3..art pavili...

SDR Hopefully Joe (who hardly spends time online) will never read your suggestion since I have fought to make as little change to the original as possible. The steps were only slightly modified, as I instructed the masons. Here are the original steps: https://www.flickr.com/photos/125471081@N02/3579...

Not sure how much rain Plano received but here is some information about how they intend to mitigate future flooding at Farnsworth: http://farnsworthproject.org I recall the stream below the bridge to the front entrance of Fallingwater was not that much lower than the bridge. This explains Edgar Jr....

Heavy rainfall in midwest. Wondering about Fallingwater.

We've had over 5 inches of rain in Central Ohio (including 3.5" yesterday) with storms that tracked into Pennsylvania. Our once babbling brook turned into a massive river with rapids, so strong as to deposit a 3 foot + boulder from upstream into our view.(actually it's several boulders that previous...

DRN, how is the house sited? If you take the 360 tour and go upstairs to the bedroom on the right of the staircase, you are right on top of a traditional house. You would think with an acre of land, there could be more privacy. Beautiful modern house with a price that can be explained in 3 words...l...

Back to working on the house, next in line are kitchen cabinet doors in sinker cypress veneered birch. We will attempt to replicate cabinets from the only original 1940s kitchen photo we have. When we took ownership there was plastic laminate cabinets from the second owner. The sinker cypress veneer...

Roderick...how can you ever seriously compare the two? One side is galvanizing voters to push for continued assess to healthcare coverage for millions of Americans and the other is spreading hateful rhetoric suggesting the NRA and their weapons is the solution. Did you watch the NRA video?

Trump and his minions (in this case the NRA) are treading in dangerous territory by inciting violence.

Loved the drone video. So unfortunate that the building couldn't find another purpose and someone to correct it's design flaws. It was urbex that lead to our discovery of Glenbrow. My eldest used urban ruins for the theme of her AP Studio Art portfolio. One vacation we took our kids, both photograph...

First off, the Tylenol was from a scientific study: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/05/160510084257.htm Secondly, the personal encounter I shared happened to a medical doctor, who made the analysis with an educational background. I shared it after hearing of the tylenol side effect. We al...
