I wonder how this one escaped Alan Weintraub when he assembled his Lloyd Wright monograph, published in 1998 . . .

SDR, I think this house was designed by John and not Lloyd.

Oops. Heh -- thanks, Craig.

Sure enough, the Mooney house is listed in my source, along with a store for Marcotte and an office for Salomen, in 1949 -- the same year that he patented
the Lincoln Logs toy, two years after he and wife Frances Welsh built their combined house and studio, on a "well-forested hillside lot," in Del Mar, California,
and three years after the publication of "My Father Who Is on Earth."
