This is GREAT news!

I think with this addition to the city's architectural gems that are open for tour it is time for a KC bus trip to Indiana whwn it opens.

Thanks for sharing these.

I wonder if this guy was ever a Bruce Goff student?

Have you thought of contacting the architect? Maybe he would give you a free consultation.

The yellow is also fiberglass batt insulation with a craft paper backing.

Are the pink and yellow versions the same thickness?

Are there more windows or doors on the cool side?

My guess is that both pieces are by Adrian Pearsall, owner and designer for Craft Associates of Pennsylvania. Much of his furniture was sold under department store labels.

Jerry: Nice design. Very mid-century. Is this a new or old design? If you optimized it for the 8'x24' panels (based on the maximum size of OSB) that SIPs manufacturers produce I bet they would like it even better. Here is a SIPs house that I designed a while back. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2026...
