Re: For sale: 1916 Prairie house - Shorewood, WI

Geez---genuinely old (1916) but amusingly tampered with---including a media room with Little-residence ceiling treatment.

There's an evocative antique placed against a bedroom wall. And can anyone spot the house in the final aerial photos ?

Re: Article: Taliesin Guest Quarters

The chimney breast composed of two large stones meeting in the middle, seen in the photo in Keiran's blog post, is echoed in more than one other residence fireplace. One of these drawings even seems to indicate a tapered stone post supporting a similar pair of stones ? "Bedroom Section/Elevation" (1...

Incredible. I don't think I've seen polished black granite flooring in a Neutra house, nor in any modernist house I'm aware of. Amazing.

Bill has to be the only WC poster ever to have employed the TINY font in a post . . . no ?

Don't ever leave us.

Re: Westhope sells for $2.5 million

Sounds like good news.

Does Price Family Properties bear any relation to the Prices who were Wright's Tulsa clients ?

Re: ASBH illustrations

Do all of the above drawings actually depict ASBH designs ? The labeling---and therefore the appearance in a particular search---of items in the Artstor files have been seen to contain errors. Could drawings belonging to other projects have been erroneously labeled as ASBH material and thus show up ...

ASBH illustrations

The rendered view drawings which were produced to illustrate the American System-Built Houses product are of interest to Wrightians, to students of the ASBH program, to architectural (and other) delineators and to graphic artists and designers---or should be. More needs to be learned about these wor...

Re: What is the purpose of the milled slot in Frank Lloyd Wright's windows?

On the drawing on Nick's linked page the two sash members are drawn and labeled with different dimensions: one is 2 1/4" and the other is 3". If this were a plan section---as one would expect from the symmetrical nature of the framing of the window---that would mean that two stiles on the same sash ...

Re: What is the purpose of the milled slot in Frank Lloyd Wright's windows?

No criticism intended, Bill. I think Mr Hayes has gone further into some details of the ASBH system, as designed and as built (not always the same thing ---even, or especially, in a complex "building recipe" like this one ?), than have other owner-restorers so far---if I'm not mistaken. In addition ...

Re: What is the purpose of the milled slot in Frank Lloyd Wright's windows?

Vertical rails = stiles ? One of Bill's comments raises an interesting point: I find over and again that Wright, in the earlier part of the career, routinely shows no gap---a practical necessity, of course---between door and window sash and the adjacent fixed members, even in full-sized detail drawi...
