This page shows a second interior rendering of the Shaw project, and lo and behold, one of the living room of the Lloyd Lewis house . . .

House on the Mesa has an interior perspective.

Also: my mistake on the Nesbitt remodel; I wasn't sure if it was a remodel on Ennis -- which I thought I had heard, but wasn't certain.

Mmm -- good one. It's interesting that these Usonian interiors are so rare . . .

I'll post the House on the Mesa one.

Mr Wright seems a bit out of his depth, here . . . ?

Geiger was at Walter for a photo shoot shortly after it was built. The huge windows fogged up on the inside so quickly after being wiped down, that the photographer couldn't get a decent shot, so Geiger and other apprentices who were there wiped the windows down, then ducked behind furniture while the photographer quickly snapped the shot. Moments later, the condensation returned.

slight correction on the Ennis/Nesbitt time line - the Ennis remodel was part of the plan to help fund the Nesbitt Carmel project (hoping to make Ennis a more attractive buy with the upgrades). it wasn't a fall back once the Carmel project came to a halt.

Oh, boy. So, a flipper scenario ? I'm surprised that Mr Wright would go so far, even for a valued client. I guess the attraction of an important new commission was worth any sacrifice ?

FLW held the Ennis design in high regard, and was ticked off by what Mabel did to it. I'm sure he saw the Nesbitt commission as a way to rectify one of his finest efforts.
