Thank you all for your interest!
I have a couple of tiles from the front that I'm trying to match (that MrX posted pics of before). Does anyone have a source for funky tile? Locally or online? Allison, do you have any students looking for a great ceramics project?
Another thing that I need help with is determining the 'official architecture name' of the place. IIRC, there is a notation in the Constructions book about the house. In the section where it lists his works and the dates in the back, it lists 'Beadle House _' on White Gates Drive. Does anyone have a copy they can look up which one it is? Thanks!
Things seemed to have calmed down, the city is mollified, the neighbors were glad to see that the owners responded when they complained, and are anxious to have work start on the house. The electricity and water are really the first steps, so we'll get Jason the info he needs to start working on those.
