SCHWEET, indeed. What a great find. Your things look cozy there already.
Love the landscaping as well. So many folks forget one of the great things about a real lived in Modern home with the indoor/outdoor connection is the real mature outdoors.
none a them wispy catci, baby palms, or teensy bonsai for you. Y'all gots trees and a swell spot fer looking through at em, too.

That's a swell pad. Congrats and keep them pictures coming...

Sweet. Congratulations ! It looks so pristine. . .

Somehow I question painting the exterior metalwork black. It would be nice if it didn't have to be there -- but black is the color that these security gates
are routinely painted when installed, now -- making them appear (to me) as afterthoughts.

Just my two cents. I could be wrong. Anyway, thanks for showing us your new gem !

I'm sickened with envy, and isn't that what this is all about?

What an amazing home. And Ft. Worth is so much better than Dallas.

Sweet! I guess you had better learn how to replace relays.

I also do not think painting the metal black would an improvement. It disappears, or at least fades, now. I'm not sure making it "pop" is a good idea. Less is more.

I get the sense that there is some sort of skylight in the middle. Can you show us that space?

As to peterm's:
"I like it very much; more "harvard five"
than what i picture from texas in the sixties..."
there was a lot of good stuff produced
out in the boonies. So-called "Starchitects"
are often highly overrated- especially by
the press- including the NYT.

I was not referring to "starchitects", but rather houses with flat roofs, no overhangs, interconnected boxy forms, more like Philip Johnson's or Marcel Breuer's houses than West Coast architecture with broad roof overhangs, etc.

I guess it's leaning a bit towards the International Style...

Postby modfan » Thu Jun 25, 2009 11:32 pm

Wow. You got a GEM!
Seems to me you don't need to change too much.
So.... are there electric receptacle outlets in the floor of the living room for putting lamps and such in the middle of the room and not having to trip on cords?
