Does anyone know if the proposed Leob project was changed in anyway from the Jester house concept? Im simply curious as to whether or not Wright made any concessions at all to the differing climate in Connecticut vs California. I love the Jester house design, but living in "room drums" in the Northeast would present quite a challenge!

Loeb is a much larger building sprawling over an extensive plot of land, and includes outbuildings for guests, staff and livestock. Comparing the two projects is difficult, since the budget for Loeb must have been several times that for Jester. A large-scale plan of Loeb is included in the 1948 issue of Architectural Forum on a fold-out page (94). Jester's basic plan was used for several unbuilt projects that vary in quality and size, some like Palmer taking the scheme a bit too far, losing clarity. It was obviously one of FLW's favorite ideas, but I would say Jester was its finest iteration.

The early newspaper photo shows, among other things, the board wall stepping down from the carport, uniquely supported by three brick plinths in a most
satisfying manner. The view drawing of the Roy Petersen version of this house includes a very similar wall; the greater slope of the Haddock site permits a
more dramatic exposition of the concept.

Photos 3 & 15 show what I mentioned above, about floor coverings with pattern potentially being problematic, even when it's a design derived from, or inspired by, FLW. (I have that metal magazine rack.) Photo #4 of the master bedroom is spectacular, similar to Griggs.

What is that protrusion in photo 30 that looks like a shower spigot? Obviously that is not what it is, considering that 31 shows a bed below it.
