In the first drawing, the shoe molding (used at the junction of floor and room base) is of an unusual profile. The joinery of the mullion members consists of a tongue and mating groove which, in the second drawing, are tapered on one cheek---curiously. The large cyma molding is not developed to its final form in the earlier drawing. On the later sheet we see the fully-worked out details of the complex window sash characteristic of Taliesin from the start.

I imagine with managing exterior water the idea was that most moisture would slide right off the exterior stucco, and the overlap of stucco onto the top lip of the cyma would prevent most moisture from accumulating? Though with such broad eaves as Talieisn 1 began with I can see why that wouldn't be too much of a concern to begin with!
Again we have a video with inadequate sound. I thought modern recording devices were more sophisticated. The tour guide was excellent, to the extent that one could hear what he was saying.
Very exquisite and direct, I love it much more than Taliesin III, of course the first one was only a house/studio and the third a kind of educational campus. Anyway, please delight with this.
