The Berger Home is still in the family, although Gloria had to leave her home in 2004 for health reasons. It is currently being rented.
Although Buck Fawcett sold his farm recently, he still owns the 80 acres the house is on.

It is amazing what may be done with simple materials on a good site, in the hands of a talented architect who truly understands organic principles. Would you know of a link or publication where we could get a look at the plan and more details for this house?
I have great interest in very small houses of exceptional design and liveability, with hope that the concept is not extinct.

I have pictures and I used to look at the original plans when I worked for Aaron. I wish I would have made some copies, I will see what I can do. I know the house so well, I could probably draw a plan that would be pretty accurate. Aaron was so great, he and a few other former apprentices pretty much built the place, Mr. Paul remembers Aaron driving up one saturday afternoon when the house was being built with a steel beam in the back of a truck, to support the cantilevering living room.
If I may, heres another little story, Aaron drove Wright down from their San Francisco office to see the Pauls, Mr. Wright apparently was very pleased with Aaron's work. Mr. Paul asked Wright...well what do you think? Wright said to Mr. Paul, "Well this wont hurt our reputation one bit".
