I think that the window above the inverted living room window is not inverted you can see something that looks like reflection.

Okay. But wouldn't you say that, going by what we see, there's no difference between what's about the muntin, and what's below ? In other
words, the same tone, the same degree of light and dark, the same boundary, etc ? That light line that appears to be at the front corner, is
exactly the same above as below ?

Do you see something above the line that's different ?

Okay I see it now it was the curtain that was throwing me. So the wood piece that separates the window up at the top, does it invert or does it not?

So, as I see it, either the glass inverts (as in the plan, 37) all the way to the top, and the muntin piece floats out by itself (supported by what, I don't
know), or the glass goes out there too -- top to bottom. The tone of the surface that would be glass, in that case, as seen in photo 33, is so much
like the tone of the glass in the french doors to the right, that it convinces me that the glass "comes out," and the whole wall of glass is in the same
plane. Also, the way that corner plane looks, all the way at the top, suggests to me that glass is there.

Clearly, the wood muntin comes out, in any event -- you can see its shadow on the post at the right, and the perspective is consistent with that, from every angle.

I'm thinking that the light-colored stripe, just left of the near corner, is the reflection of sky to the left; the rest of that plane of glass reflects the first
post to the left, which is in shadow so its reflection is dark.

So, you have the glass in the right place in your model. Now, to get those posts straightened out. I'm sure all this stuff is hard to change at this point. . .

I have a thought though sounds silly.. maybe they have glass inverted and then glass non-inverted but that seems highly unlikely and does not make sense. There is something there that is like a table or something on page 7 in the Living room.

The last interior color photo on page 7 shows the corner condition where the bench seat ends. The glass could go either way, from all the interior photos
I've seen so far. I can't imagine double glass, enclosing -- what ? Like a terrarium, I guess ? Nah. . .

Photo 36, lower on the page, shows something I missed, and proves I was wrong when I claimed the french doors are hinged off the weak side of
the opening. The missing bottom rail of the open door shows the door is actually hinged on the left, to the structural post.

That is what I meant by silly. That is what I meant like a terrarium.

wjsaia: The 5th picture of the new Pauson pics you posted (with the car up at the house) is THE most dramatically lighted photo I have ever seen of the house. The shadows really render the textures, and the angle of the shadows compliment perfectly the canted forms.
These are incredible....with the drawings, these pictures, a similar site maybe closer to Tucson, and a few million dollars, this house could rise again.

The woman in the red print dress appears to be Rose Pauson...the woman's facial features match a pic of Rose posted by Aaron Green's son on a geneology page I saw once while looking for Pauson house pictures.

The color photos of the remains seem to show the stonework in its best post-fire condition, bringing to mind the possibility of an early resurrection of the
house. I stumbled upon this reference while searching for photos:

"The Boomers had originally contacted Wright in 1945 about re-building the burned out rubblestone remains of the nearby Pauson House, but Jorgine
scaled back the project following the untimely death of her husband in a plane crash."

Has this been reported previously ?

Jim M sends this photo from a 1979 Frank Lloyd Wright Newsletter. It would answer some questions for the person trying to determine just how
the house was built: Note that the interior of the north (near) end of the entrance hall is filled with a wedge of masonry (though the exterior is clad in
wood; the stone floor surface of that hall is supported by a surprisingly thin cantilevered slab (as shown in a section drawing); and the stair is indeed of
stone. The first-floor masonry box that is the servant accommodation has a regularly-spaced series of openings -- on both the east and west elevation.
These show here, and in the distance shot of the ruins on the previous page.
