Wow. Wow. Your house is absolutely amazing. Ironically, we also live in a flat roof modern and are serious Florence Knoll collectors. Cheers.

You own my dream front doors!
The living room photo looks like a movie star home photo from the 1960s.

what a wonderful home. thank you for sharing your story via the magazine!
I'm gonna keep on the run... I'm gonna have me some fun if it costs me my very last dime.
If I wind up broke up, well, I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time

Beautiful home indeed.
I too would have fell in love once I walked through those front doors.

Thank you so much for the compliments. I have been trying to research the frontdoor knobs . The Elvis Honeymoon home in Palm Springs Built by Alexander has the same knobs and it has been driving me crazy not knowing who did them.

Terrazzo.?

Horribly expensive if that's done now so I've heard.

I have actually been meaning to ask about the terrazzo. It's not unheard of in DFW to find a house with terrazzo in every room. But after thinking about what the owner said earlier I'm surprised. In a previous thread he mentioned that the house is built with a crawl space that is fully lighted. I thought terrazzo was only installed on slab on grade because of the weight. I'm wondering if there is extra piers to support the added weight of terrazzo?

Your right, I did mention that the house is pier and beam construction. The house is built more like a commercial structure rather than residential. We have had workers under the house for various projects and they have commented on how surprised they were to see huge concrete peirs and supporting walls. The crawl space is accessed through three seperate entrances. The support walls makes it impossible to get from one side of the house to the other.
