Here's a Seattle-area Frank Lloyd Wright home I know well. We spent many an evening
there with my favorite builder Ray Brandes and his wife Helen and their dog Tang. Jerry

That place is beautiful! Is it in as excellent condition as the photos seem to suggest? Those bright ceilings (sheetrock?, plaster?) really make the place look airy and spacious. Seems like many of the other Usonions had mostly dark wood ceilings.

We had a chance to visit the Rosenbaum house a few years back...

Awesome experience!
