Sunday House 8 by FLW Marshalltown IA 7_3_2016 Michael Shuck 2018 by Mike Shuck, on Flickr[/img]
from the mailbox structure. Perhaps a storm has already come through the neighborhood ?
For decades I knew the house only from this photo (where was it published ?), which I now learn shows Howe's dining room addition. Even here the
proportions, and the crisp brickwork and trim, are evident. This extension appears at far left in one of of Mike's photos.
The wing projecting toward the street is a family room by Howe (1969-70). Storrer implies that Howe corrected "problems with lack of overhangs on one
side" at the same time. I wonder what and where those were; was an existing roof extended ?
Only 15 miles away in Pella (headquarters for Pella windows) this was the devastation:

The light fixture has been repaired twice. Once when the house was purchased as it did not work at all and was missing the rear fixture and several years ago when the oak tree fell on it. It is fine also.
Bob Sunday tried to correct the statement about the overhang involved in the Howe addition. He said there was never a problem.
I hope this helps clear up a few things.
