A teacher tries to commission a house from Frank Lloyd Wright...

She's very clear about what she wants. He makes a plan, but hasn't paid excessive amounts of attention.

They never achieve a meeting of minds.

I treasure this:

"I looked first for the windows which Mr. Wright told me he would put in the southeast wall of my house. I could not find any! And I am not building a house without windows on the southeast!! (The first exclamation mark I used to register disappointment; the second to indicate emphasis.) My house must make sense to me and a house in Superior without windows in the southeast is silly."

I've never disambiguated exclamation points, but perhaps someday I will have the opportunity.

She did so much research. I wonder whether she ended up designing her own house. This entry was posted at https://nancylebov.dreamwidth.org/1112637.html. Comments are welcome here or there. comment count unavailable comments so far on that entry.
