A wonderful house, but I have never cared for that 'window' in the loggia (images 13 and 26).

Central loggia concept bears some resemblance to Price desert house in Arizona

The floors look worse for wear on the Lawrence Tech website.
Question arises for these elevated Usonians, why poured concrete
instead of wood - thermal mass maybe?
Surprised not to see any cracks in Affleck floor.

Doesn't the Lewis house (elevated Usonian) have wood floors?

Pew and Lewis are wood, extensively carpeted in the photos, and Sturges is wood with Cherokee-colored vinyl or linoleum tile . . .

The Affleck section drawing uses an unusual (for Taliesin) convention for wood-framed plates; we see that the only slabs would be on the ground-floor spaces beyond the cut (presumably), and in the upstairs bedroom wing . . .

outside in, Winn is half one-story and half two-story; is the half one a concrete slab? What is the structure of the 2-story half?
