What a great article. For once, it's nice to see interviews with homeowners where the experience comes across as real and balanced - the wonders of living in a Wright versus the inherent challenges - without a sense that the author is trying to spin it negative.

I take back my objection to the Hardy House gates; while they are not the design that was original to the house, they are very handsome and work well. The street façade is stunning!

I got to tour Hardy last month with the Conservancy. While they've made some choices outside the original design, the overall job really is stunning.
