George Lewis House " Spring House " Florida

Post by m.perrino »

The FLW FDN has posted a link to a person who has taken some excellent photos of this house. This persons name is : Krystyn Pecora which you may or may not be able to find on Facebook.

In lieu of this, or with some assistance from those more 'tuned in' - it is possible to go to my Facebook site, scroll down to "Spring House"and you should be able to see all the 66 photos.

To find me on Facebook : Michael Perrino - page has a photo of a reclining Buddha.

Any other help would be appreciated. BTW, it appears there is some preservation work going on to upgrade this house, but it was not stated as such.

Let's see if a direct link to the album works:

Yes, the link works. Thanks egads!

Is this the house that was an overgrown, seeming near-ruin for decades?

Ahh, thank you, Reidy.

Link to restoration group. Make sure to click on the first video:

Here, you can click on a pdf file (over to the right) for additional info. Nice images of pre-eroded carport:

Considering the total lack of maintenance the house had for almost six decades, it seems in pretty good shape, and amazingly original.

Neglect is often much less destructive than architectural second guessing and invasive remodeling...

And the videos can be seen here:

The second one showing dozens of people coming together to work on this place is truly one of the most inspiring things that I have seen in a long time...
