Thank you, Mr Baker. Could you translate "a 1905 models stucco" for me ?

A recent restoration photo showed the Baker house under rehabilitation and mentioned a 1905 stucco sample from a similar wright design. I assert that the Baker house is unlike other stucco, this per Gunny Harboe, Chicago-Wright expert rehabilitative architect whom refinished the Robie house. Also, Barbara is the director of the Conservancy.

*unlike other Wright stuccos. Also Ms. Gordon's position is a non sequitur as she is well known. My redundancy. Further, the Baker house is Wrights last ode to the family structure or familial "church" as he was on his way with Mamah away from their families to Europe in 1909.

I am the guy who got the lawyer who snagged the home from one of Wright's apprentices in 2014, to sell. It was mouldering and the 2 story living room collapsing.

I'm glad the house was saved. And I like the use of "church" in connection with these designs---the ones appearing (or mentioned) together in this thread:

Heh. At the bottom of the previous page, a Frank Baker took a hard left (or right) turn, from Serlin to the Baker house.

I can't say why---but we go where the wind blows, here at Wright Chat . . .!
