My wife is out of town at the moment traveling with a friend and went to the Rosenbaum house today. She just texted me a snapshot of the skunked earth just east of the house, where the big magnolia used to be -- she reports that it's just been cut down. I know it's not the original tree in THE photo, but it subsequently stood in the same place and provided the same visual function -- a vertical foil against which all that horizontality shines.
Sadly, here's her photo showing the bald spot where the big magnolia once stood.
I see now that the new wing has a lower floor level than that of the original. The plan shows three risers down to the new construction, with a further four or five steps down to the new guest room.
