Feiman house

Post by juankbedoya »

Hello ... I am looking for information of this house, but I only found the same few exterior shots ... and a minecraft video ... but it seems disproportionate ... there is no topic of this house neither, just comments. .. Do you have interior shots or plans specially ..? Thanks

Found this, looks interesting:
The drawings are crystal clear. Roof framing plan shows the carport cantilever construction.

Anyone know of the current status and condition of Feiman? It was of concern for some time a while back.

Thanks... I knew that Feiman and Trier are based on the New York exhibition house... by the way I forgot to share this link where you can see a lot of exterior pictures... but it seems that... are there very few interior shots..?

There was an apprentice named Barber (don't recall his first name), though he is not in the Directory. I met him at an event at Zimmermann. I doubt it is the same person; he would be in his 70s or 80s now.

Don't know if it's the same person, but Gordon Barber was an apprentice in the 1970's. At the time his wife was Nancy Cronkite-Barber.

Rood, that sounds right: Gordon. But he wasn't married or was dallying when I met him.

Reader Mark Westfall has sent photos which show that the major problem at the corner of the carport roof has been dealt with, and a new roof cover apparently installed. This will be good news to those who feared for the future of this property ?

Barber's marriage to Nancy Cronkite broke up while they were living at Taliesin West.
