The Facebook page is Public, easy to update, and appears on Google searches, but I'm not sure if non-Facebook users can access it.
PLEASE let me know if you're interested in this type of photo content and if you can or can't access it so I can make adjustments to my regular website. Thanks.
I loved the pictures. It's the closest I've ever been to the house,
they were a minor revelation of scale.
The color photograph of the elevation across the green grass is wonderful. Thank you.
I'm not a Facebook user, but I was able to view the photos via your link. Many thanks for posting them. I enjoy seeing the details of Wright's houses and comparing them to those in our house...I also enjoy seeing comparison pictures of the house through the years. Your house is one of Wright's best.
Your kitchen is a good example of alterations being made to keep the room current and usable while maintaining the overall character of the original. We have Fiestaware in our kitchen too, and I've seen it in a number of Usonians. As the dishes wind up on open shelves in a Usonian, they need to be part of the design, Fiesta seems to go well with Usonians.
Our house had some electrical receptacles added over the years too...being a slightly OCD detail person, I found I could minimize their visual impact by painting the conduit and junction box to a tone close to the wood wall tone and replacing the receptacle cover with a brushed brass plate to match the originals.
The quiet fabric on the day bed with the punch of Fiesta color in the throw pillows looks fantastic.
It looks like you are enjoying the house, rock on.
