Residence A and Oleanders perspectives were done by Lloyd. RMS left FLW's employ while Hollyhock was still under construction (after beginning his house on Kings Road in 1921). The later work he did for Barnsdall was on his own - not through FLW - including: a remodeling of Aline's bedroom; alterations to his own design for Oleanders after FLW had moved into it briefly and practically overhauled it; and conversion of the unfinished Little Dipper into a less ambitious play space.

The FLW plaster design for C. P. Lowes (see Wendigen) was the scheme that evolved into the textile block Storer House. RMS's work for Lowes was his own commission. When the Lowes House was demolished (I believe to make way for a freeway) Randall Makinson, long time director at Greene & Greene's Gamble House, salvaged the copper hood of the fireplace. Years later, in the 90s, he built a house of his own design for himself and incorporated the hood.

While some of RMS's work for FLW cause questions of attribution, one only has to look at the drawings for Shampay to see that FLW had nothing whatsoever to do with that project.
