There is a John Watson (without a Covert) "c. 1950." According to Besinger, he worked with Aaron Green after Taliesin. The address given is PO Box 5103, Austin, TX 78703.

That's an impressive piece of work, as consistent in its way as is a Wright creation . . .?

The architecture is fine, but I'm not fond of the color palette. If stone, real or pretend, is used at all, it should be a significant feature, not just lumpy wallpaper.

The roof is a bit busy. I would name this house 'Bustles.'
