Kansas City Star features Mid-Century Modern Drummond Homes

Postby moderns-r-us » Sun Jul 02, 2006 12:11 pm

In this Sunday's Kansaa City Star there was a nice feature on the cover of the "House and Home" Section featuring mid-century modern homes and specifically some Drummond Homes that were on the recent Drummond Stroll. They did not put up many of the pictures from the article, but you can read the article on their website.

that's some good ink, MRU. I am in southern Iowa right now. I am going to see if I can find a hard copy. wish I had time to travel south and see some drummonds :cry:

that brochure they have linked is top notch too. nice illustration work! I wonder if the same firm that did eichler's brochures designed it. would not be surprised.

simply one of Jones' best designs...

I think the brochure came from NBC. I would guess Eichler and the other builders were using the same piece with their names on it

It surfaced at the Drummond Evening with one of the newest members of KCMODERN. His parents were hoping to have one built for themselves in 1955 and it had Don's original notes for cost estimates in it.

Joe:

if you are in southern Iowa you are not that far away. Come on down. have you found those Iowa AQJ homes yet?
