Here are a few more houses for sale.
This one, The Buckley house, Listed for $900,000 is just amazing. Paul Ringstrom and I, along with a tour group, went through this house recently. It really is as amazing as it looks. $900,000 seems a bit steep for NW Arkansas, but the house somewhat justifies it. Here is a link, Get a load of those photos!!!
This next home was a done when E. Fay Jones was a student, and designed the project along with Gayland Witherspoon. $675,000

Here is a link to more photos of Stoneflower.. The sq ft is 1,859..

It can also be rented! I think it has been brought up before, but if you are interested, I would do it now.. (Which reminds me.. I need to do this soon!)
Not that I think it will sell right away, but once it does.. It may not be available for rentals anymore. It is $200 a night.. Here is the link.
Here is another link to a Realtor site..

I like the use of the stone and the apparent natural integration.
1. Anyone know of any good books on his work?
2. With respect to Stoneflower, was the woodwork (interior and exterior) originally painted, as it currently appears from the pictures?
Well really, right now there are only two.1. Anyone know of any good books on his work?
Outside the Pale, which is just a small book, and has a brief overview of his work.

The other book, Fay Jones by Robert Adams Ivy Jr. It is a more complete and comprehensive book. The only "main book" on E. Fay Jones at the moment. It still does not cover his entire body of work, but is very good. It has been out of print, so the prices vary greatly.

There is also a free PDF put together by the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program. Here is the link for it.. It is defiantly worth the time to read, VERY well researched. See page 40 for additional information on Stoneflower..

I couldn't tell you for sure, but my guess would be yes. Several of his homes I have seen, have been painted. That would be a good question for the University of Arkansas, Special Collections. See Link.. http://libinfo.uark.edu/SpecialCollecti ... efault.asp2. With respect to Stoneflower, was the woodwork (interior and exterior) originally painted, as it currently appears from the pictures?
Well as an update, I heard back from the owner or Realtor, not sure which. According to him, this house was designed by Tom Lutz. Who had a house designed by E. Fay Jones.

I am trying to find out who was the original architect.
E Fay Jones had advised on the project, and Maurice Jennings (http://www.mauricejennings.com/) had some input as well. Jennings of course being a former partner of Jones, and still operating today.
Tom Lutz was a writer on the variety show Hee-Haw. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hee_Haw
So it has some interesting history..

The house has now been painted a less bluish tint, more gray/blue. I think it should be some shade of brown to blend in with the trees.
This house was purchased by a couple from AZ a few years ago. Their house did not sell in AZ, so they ended up moving back. The house has sat empty for a year and a half.
This is a very large house. It sits on over 5 fenced and gated acres of rolling wooded land with mature trees with asphalt driveways. It is on city sewer and water. It has an original three-car carport and a four car underground garage (that has been tastefully added near the in-gound pool).
Some of the masonry needs attention and the ceiling of the lower family room and living room needs work due to squirrel activity. The current owners had replaced all the kitchen and bathroom countertops. The floors are the signature Paris, AR golden flagstone that EFJ used in many of this houses. The windows and sliding doors were the original single-pane aluminum units with mill finish. The roof shingles look fairly new. LOTS of built-in storage cabinets and bookcases. You could easily put another $100K into it to make it spectacular.
Taxes were $1700 and utilities costs were unknown by the realtor.
One is in Mena, AR.. It is the Bob Carver home. The home has had an interesting life. It has been cared for but not lived in for the past few years. The current owner is a lumber man, so the hill it is on is fairly stripped, but the home itself looks to be in excellent condition. The place is huge. I will be posting photos of it shortly, but I wasn't able to make it inside this trip and it was raining that day.
Go to this website and search for properties in Mena, AR. It is listed for $279,500, which to me is quite a steal..
The other one is in Cherokee Village, AR. It is a townhouse which Jones designed, but I don't believe he had anyone there to supervise construction, I could be wrong. The home is in great shape! You can walk out to the Golf course from it, and there is a river fairly close.
Doug Magee has the listing for two Jones properties, Stoneflower and this townhouse. Scroll down and you will see it..Again, another steal in my opinion..

I'm not sure if everyone knows or not, but I'm working on a guidebook for E. Fay Jones and all his built structures, with David McKee and Maurice Jennings projects also being featured. It will be a lot like Thomas Heinz's book.
I am very close to finishing it. Well, so to speak. I hope to have it finished in the fall. I am now going by most of the projects that I can, to take photos of them.
It will be self published and I will have it available on Blurb.com. Then, I hope someone will help me publish it in a more legitimate fashion. But if not, it will be a pretty good guide to find Jones' work.
