Certainly agree about the tower, Roderick. However, the ill-conceived (IMO) plastered addition over the dovecots eliminated the soaring nature of the upper tower eave. Other changes around it have also lessened the originally intended effect. At the time it made a stronger statement with reference t...

Thanks so much for posting this! We had information on this collaboration with Taliesin Preservation a year or so ago. Since then I've been checking back hoping to see the promised video on the SkylineInk site. For some reason they still only have a still photo and not the video (?). I never thought...

Exactly... a final flight of fantasy resulting from a (probably too) lengthy flirtation with what I consider to be a perfect house.... lower level windows notwithstanding-or to be included!

And the last shot compares this construction, in close-up, to the tower roofs in the distance: well done !S Yes, although not part of the original construction, perhaps what ended up the most significant structural element was created simply by need: Function: vent kitchen followed by...

Sorry, I stopped using Photobucket and they apparently found it retaliatory to blur the images of the Newsletter which they obviously still had!

Yes, Roderick. Those are battens to attach trim. The individual modules of the unit room are defined by the mid-air trim sections between the pier groupings either side of the fireplace. The two "missing" trim sections run full length from the dining room to library; visually tying everything togeth...
