The picture in Joe's post above, the one right under the vintage house plan, is the Sears on S Main in Houston. The tragedy is that ugly metal siding hides an Art Deco gem underneath. Houston Chronicle Arts columnist Lisa Gray wrote a story about it with pics of what is underneath that mess. The art...

Houston, TX ~Memorial Bend Wm Floyd designed MCM on big lot

This is a great Wm Floyd design on an unusually large lot with a pool. It does not suffer from bad Tuscan "updates" or anything like that.

Kick off for Glenbrook Valley historic district petition.

Next Thursday we are having the petition drive kick off to make Glenbrook Valley Houston's first mid-century historic district. I am not sure but it may even be Texas' first. The city selected Glenbrook Valley as one of only two neighborhoods (the other being a much older Arts & Crafts style are...

I finally had the photographer go out and re-shoot this property. The new pics really do a better job of "capturing" the sense of space on this beauty.

Oh I know. It is one thing when it is a so-so house, but this one was really a cool place once upon a time. I can just picture the back with the additions gone, (which you could look at them cross eyed and they would probably fall off), and that L shaped rear facade with all glass and the big overha...

Textbook case of every abuse not to do to a good mod house

Oh where to start, this once fabulous MCM in Glenbrook Valley has seen its share of abuse. At one point a Doctor tried to turn it into his office, which you can't do in a restricted neighborhood and that was promptly stopped, but not before he blocked off the entry hall with a half wall and sliding ...

First off, you also need to share some interior and back side pics, especially considering the contrast. I wish I had better photographic examples, but I would use some kind of horizontal slat fencing. I would also pair it with a cleaner lined front door. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v614/rober...

This one is in the final stages of needing a reprieve. The owner will sell it to a mod enthusiast to save it, but at some point soon, he is going to proceed with his original plan to build new on it. Here is the link to MLS: http://search.har.com/engine/dispSearch.cfm?mlnum=7919636&backButton=Y
