The impetus for this thread is an obscure two-page coverage of a 1978 Jones house, client and location unidentified, as found in "25 Years of Record Houses" (1981; McGraw-Hill/Architectural Record Books).
Isn't it often the lyric stage of an artist's career that produces the finest work?
It has been the repository for houses for sale and other Jones house related items. In it are links or pictures to two of Jones' smaller commissions which reach the level of perfection in my estimation: the now lost Fletcher house in Fayetteville, and the Scruggs house in Kentucky.
