Ultimate Craftsman


The Style of the house should be as far as possible determined by four conditions: First, Climate; Second, Environment; Third, Kinds of materials available; Fourth, Habits and tastes—i.e., the life of the owner.

--Charles Sumner Greene, 1906, The Western Architect

Nice photo, with the tree framing it. Is that a Greene & Greene?

I remember that house!!! Great framing as Mr. E said. I like all of the various shades of green and brown.

I see so many of these arts & craftsman period houses around they all start to look the same to me.

Wasn't there some controversy about these Oaklawn houses not really being Greene and Greene? Or am I thinking of something else?
