Is there a possibility of getting better quality scans? I cannot read much of the text on the images posted and I am really interested in the details. I am assuming the problem is due to scanning resolution.
This of course is an assumption and would only be a possibility if the original images are of good quality.
Sorry to ask, but what do you think?
Not all drawings (for instance) are published so that every label is legible. . .
I can e-mail my scans at full size if you like.
I have also find some interesting things on another forum about the
torsion problems of the cantilever roof. You are helping everybody it seems.
Could you email me your name so I can add you to my special thanks
of my research ?
SDR can you sent me your full name to firstname.lastname@example.org ?
I want to use it for special thanks and the sketchup model you made.
I'm doing a movie with 3D MAX of the house and I want to mention your name as the maker of the model. Otherwise I will use SDR.
(The talented and industrious Mr Myers, just 20 years old this month, has produced exquisite and presumably accurate models of several Wright Usonian-era houses, as well as numerous structures of his own design. These are usually presented as animated "tours," wherein the gorgeous and revealing linework is discarded, leaving only planes of color. In my opinion, these lovely and informative models should be viewed in their original SketchUp format. . .)
Again, crediting me with a SketchUp model would be an error -- but thanks for your generous intention.
Dobkins has been a wonderful and a 2 month task.
I love Goetsch-Winckler and SDR proudly helped me out with it and gave most of the information and it is proudly built right.
Robin I am proud of your research on this wonderful home.

I'm not sure why you show various spacing of structural posts on the entry facade window wall; all drawings show a post at each 4-foot unit line.
