Realtor Listing of the above WI house: https://www.realtor.com/realestateandho ... 5475-28857
I contacted the listing realtor for this property and found out:
1) The owner has accepted a contract to purchase.
2) The owner designed this house himself.
3) The owner is not an architect or a FLW apprentice.
4) If you couldn't tell, he is a big FLW fan.

Pretty good house I'd say.

More than good, I'd say; it's just about perfect. One fault can be seen in photo 12: between the two pairs of sliders is a foot or more of solid wall, roughly opposite the chimney mass. That piece of solid works to sap the strength of that important opening. Wright would have made this wide opening continuous, an unbroken run of glazed doors, leading the eye out of the space---and/or around the fireplace to the unseen, beyond. He knew what to do: play up the contrast between solid and void; don't make a gesture and then take it back.

Yes, the second photo suggests that foot or two of solid wall(s) might actually be piers. Had they been properly emphasized ... so that both inside and outside surfaces could be viewed as one continuous surface, seen through glass ... they would give the impression of space moving both inward and outward. Perhaps the problem might be corrected without too much trouble.

Aha---so they are. Three piers. What would Wright do ? The obvious---for him: bring the glass to the piers, float the doors within the openings, and the piers appear both inside and out. That's what you're thinking ?

The piers (assuming they're vital) would have their axes countering the plane of the wall. Nice. Schwartz, Sunday et al . . .

Exactly. And thanks for bringing the problem to our attention. I knew there was something wrong when I viewed photo 12, but brushed it aside until I read your message .... which for me was an "Aha" moment.

A change in material for the piers would help. There are 4 openings, with 3 piers, the far ends just wall space terminating, which is a better resolution than 5 piers would have been. Image 4, if you can edit out the trees, proves that façade to be perfectly symmetrical (save the offset of the chimney) sort of a small, wooden emulation of the Robie
living room/dining room wing, including the 45-degree bays at either end.

Funny, I could almost see Frank Lloyd Wright strolling through the house, humming the catchy tune.
