Help Beta Test the Cliff May Registry

Postby Stephen » Mon Dec 04, 2006 7:53 pm

Some of you have heard me mention (okay...harp on and on about) a registry for Cliff May owners so there is a user-supported database of both prefabs and customs.

Anyhow, I decided to teach myself PHP and make a database. It's not very pretty, but I think it works. I'd really appreciate your feedback -- additional fields, ideas, etc.

Here's the linky:

Might I suggest a place where we could enter status and I would be glad to add the recently demolished Kansas City KS custom Cliff May.

Stephen,

Good idea! And keep up the good work. Don't be discouraged if it takes some time for people to enter data.

Here are my thoughts on the demolished Cliff May Homes issue.

Ironically, I have had three people contact me through the KCmodern website asking about the location of the only known Cliff May custom home in Kansas City. This has been since it was torn down this past summer. No one ever asked about the home before it was torn down.

The home was only known to be a Cliff May for a little over a year before it was torn down. The home was only discovered to be a Cliff May when I put a few leads together and found it along with a friend.

I think there are a lot of people out there who are looking at the reprints of the Cliff May books and would like to know the status of those different homes.

Here is the thread about the Kansas City custom Cliff May. http://www.lottaliving.com/bb/viewtopic ... cba95381f6

There was also a previous discussion about Cliff May's own custom home, Vandalay, which I guess is torn down too????

P.S.

A friend has come up with a title for a new book called Architectural Crimes of the Twenty-first Century.

I think we will add the demolition of the Cliff May custom house as a chapter.

Stephen:

Yes, I agree!

First let me applaud your effort! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
I was only making a suggestion.

I certainly did not want to make this a philosophical debate.

I do not cry over the losses, but my feeling is that acknowledging them adds to the rareness and value of that which remains. One could hope that people seeing the lost causes could trigger some synapse in the remaining owner's head like, "Hey I shouldn't mess this up. It is valuable."

And in the immortal words of Forest Gump, "That's all I got to say about that!"

I registered my rancho, but my link to photobucket was too long.
Sorry, but my photo link won't work. You can delete it if you'd like.

here's the full address
