Very nice.

And I suppose I am fiscally spoiled by living in the South. My entire mortgage payment (PITI) is within dollars of what the monthly tax bill is for that place.

"Edgar The Tafel" as Wright liked to call him, his memoirs are an entertaining view into life at Taliesin. Great Fallingwater and Johnson Wax Building stories. I suppose he was the East Coast Aaron Green or vice versa depending on your perspective.

Like alot of the people who came out of the fellowship he was/is underappreciated.

Merry Christmas Eve everybody!

From this article: ... /TAFEL.HTM

"Edgar Tafel designed the Silver house at 2910 Michigan Blvd. in 1947 for Adrian and Ida Silver. It uses paving brick from Main Street with stained siding."

"Edgar Tafel's first commission was a home in North Bay, which he designed on a lakefront lot in 1938. His success with the project eventually led to a disagreement with Frank Lloyd Wright, for whom he had been working as an apprentice in the Taliesin Fellowship, and to his departure from Spring Green to begin his own architectural practice."
