Day Four- 1/4 Lap of America
Yes, the same Moore as was the father of the bride who built the Hills-DeCaro House next door, around the corner from Frank Lloyd Wright's House, down the street from his lover's house.
Who needs the Internet when all your clients, family and friends and your architect live on your block?
The story goes that FLLW flew home as soon as he heard this house was damaged.
So it was a FLLW design in 1895 and a FLLW remodel in 1923.
The quote from FLLW on the plaque reads:
"A porch on a half timber English Tudor, that never happened before."
"The small wing to the west, according to the original plans, was an unfinished garden house. Between this garden house and the main house is now a two-car garage. ...Two car garage added between garden house and main structure."
Even now I am finding out that the driveways may not be where they were.
