Reading the posted article, I was quite surprised to learn how close the Haynes House came to being yet another victim of a 'remuddle'. I extend my thanks to RJH for saving it from this sorry fate. The success rate for additions to the original Wright fabric seems to be about a 50/50 proposition. At one end of the spectrum is the tragic mess made of the Thaxton House; one of my favorite compact floor plans. At the other end we have Wright's own seamless addition to Reisley which is a supreme success. In between, are host of good and not so good efforts. Surprisingly, even Wright was imo on occasion somewhat less than at the top of his game: Sondern being the one that I'm thinking of.

The lesson here is to approach tampering with a work of art with great caution. These are works of art as well as dwellings: if they were not we wouldn't be on this board.

One final note to RJH. Architectural preservation, like virtue, is it's own reward, or better be. If you don't expect appreciation you won't be disappointed if you don't receive it.
