Since I posted a house photo in WAYWRN a couple of days ago, I got a couple of PM's asking for more. So, I figured this would be a better place for it. The house is a 1957 built by Blaine Drake, who was one of the only FLW apprentices who went on to do residential stuff. The amazing thing, is that it was built for a family who lived in it until a couple of years ago, and the house is largely original. No remodels or "updates," just the way he envisioned it back in 1957, with minimal wear and tear. Enjoy!

Nice place. Great job with the lighting. It could easily feel oppressive given the materials and colors but lighting warms it up quite a bit. I'm always impressed when I see homes that are so clean and uncluttered - especially when there are little kids in it - so kudos.

^^Wow, that's great Gregaz. Makes me miss desert living (used to have an Alexander in Palm Springs -- not nearly as cool as your custom place). I was told that my current house was designed by a Wright apprentice, but I believe that he may just have been an admirer.

nice place Gregaz! the only thing that caught my attention was the painting above the bookcase, it seemed too short/small or something

G- thanks for the pics.

You said largely untouched- original kitchen and bath fixtures too?

Umm ... dude, the wife hated me when I suggested the photoshoot. Trust me, kids have their run of the place on normal days - so it does not really look like this.

BTW, your not needing an alarm clock comment a couple of days ago made me laugh. I haven't slept normally in 2.5 years that we've had children. I swear sometimes I feel like I aged ten years since the first one.

Yeah ... Two photos added above. Check the matching set of Crane fixtures with the exception of the kitchen faucet.

My boys are just like tornadoes, only much smaller. They go through rooms, one after the other, and when they come out the whole place is upside down - socks stuck on the ceiling, chairs out the window, etc...

damn gregaz. beautiful house. love the large room especially.

beautiful home, gregaz. amazing quality of life it suggests. my only suggestion would be to straighten up the books. it is hell on bindings to store them at anything less than a perpendicular angle. illustrations are easy to google. as a book guy i cringe whenever i see books stored at funny angles, or resting on top of books in the space below the shelf above. some will scoff but i would compare the sloppy bookshelf to storing your ties with the knot in, or not using shoe trees. would not mention this except that you indicated the photoshoot shows the cleaned up place, which suggests you might not know better . . . otherwise the space is all beautiful. love the colors you have chosen for the furniture and walls, and i also appreciate the prominence you have awarded to your books, and equally beautiful bookshelves. amazing home. your children are very fortunate to grow up there.

I've a friend in Omaha in a modest typical tract house... but the bathroom's tile, tub, toilet, pedestal sink and vanity are all original 1949 and in remarkable shape.
