Which apprentice may have built this house? Kevin says it is not Beharka.

Re Chowchilla house: It's certainly possible, being due east of Los Banos. Not a "turn-key" property, and considering its price, not anywhere near habitability.

Chowchilla: shades of Schindler and/or Lautner ? Surely Wright, in the curved plan encompassing a cylinder or cone (giving PJ something to think about at the Glass House ?) a la Jacobs 2, Cornwell, David Wright, others . . . Or, a cavernous central masonry mass, thin-walled, as at Fawcett or Clifton Lewis.

Is that a T West roof, bent in plan, in this house ?

Do schools of photography have special courses for real estate agents teaching them how to make even a bad house look worse?

One thing they've learned, unfortunately, is that they can make rooms appear larger (or more expansive) by stretching the image horizontally; wide-angle lenses can do this automatically, when the image format is "landscape" (horizontal rectangle), which is the default format. Thus, blame for intentional misrepresentation is avoided, as the wide-angle lens Is a common tool for photographing in a confined space ? Just how wide to go is a matter of choice, of course . . .

"It’s wide enough to capture even a small space in full."

Shouldn't that read "wide enough to capture even a large space . . ."?
