CLICK HERE if you are having trouble viewing these photos on a mobile device Like a ghost wandering the halls of its own creation, the legend of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright lingers in the curves and angles, the masonry and woodwork, and even the furnishings of one of his standout Usonian homes, the Maynard Buehler house in Orinda. The Buehler house, tucked into an unassuming cul de sac, is one of three Bay Area Wright-designed homes that will be open for tours in the coming two weekends. In addition to the Buehler house, the Bazett/Frank house in Hillsborough and the Robert Berger house in San Anselmo will also be open to the public. They are part of a California inaugural fundraising tour conducted by the Frank Lloyd Wright Revival Initiative. Two others in Bakersfield and Bradbury were on the tour earlier this month. The Bazett/Frank house contains the smallest bedroom ever designed by Wright, nicknamed “The Mummy Room.” The Berger house includes the storied Wright-designed doghouse, known as Eddie’s House, designed for a 12-year old boy and his dog. It is the only doghouse that the architect is known to have created. “We are embarking on a home tour this July, which will provide the opportunity for Frank Lloyd Wrightophiles all over the country to visit Wright-designed private homes rarely available for public tours, plus meet with high-profile Wright experts and original client descendants,” says Michael Miner, a documentary filmmaker who specializes in films on Wright architecture, and the founder and CEO of the organization.

The couple had seen Wright’s designs featured in Architectural Digest and wanted him to build a house for them, but held little hope of attracting the famed architect to Orinda. Then Katherine Buehler learned of a couple who had persuaded Wright to come to San Francisco to build a store, the Morris Gift Shop on Maiden Lane. She wrote to Wright, asking him to consider designing a home for them. After hearing nothing, the couple hired a San Francisco architect, but were happy with neither the design nor the cost. Then one day, the phone rang and a man identified himself as their architect and asked to meet. It was Wright. It took four months to draw up the plans and about a year to build. It was not always a happy collaboration. The Buehlers found Wright arrogant at times and unwilling to divert much from his original plans. When the 6-foot tall Katherine Buehler complained that the kitchen looked small, Wright informed her that women had been emancipated from the kitchen, which was news to Mrs. Buehler. But when the home was finished, everyone was happy, including Wright, who showed up unannounced one day after the Buehlers had settled in. After a tour, Wright proclaimed that he had built them a beautiful home. And he had. The Buehler home was one of about 60 that Wright designed in the style he called Usonian — homes meant as affordable alternatives for the middle class. Wright had wanted to use slate for construction, but the Buehlers found it too expensive, so Wright settled on an unconventional material — cinder block. The material turned out to be inexpensive, says Nadine Smith, event coordinator for the home, but a dickens to work with, which ended up adding to the cost of the home. Wright also chose old-growth redwood for the interior and exterior, a copper roof and 14-karat gold leaf on the ceilings. The floors, made of concrete slabs, were stained in Wright’s favorite color, Cherokee red. Wright had two conditions before he would officially start the project. He insisted the Buehlers purchase the surrounding property, which has streams running through it, and that they hire landscape architect Henry Matsutani, who renovated the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. The Buehlers agreed. Wright had definite ideas about a lot of things outside the architectural realm. He believed the perfect size dinner party was no more than six guests, so he designed a dining table for the Buehlers with exactly six chairs, all with low backs so they didn’t obstruct the view. Frank Lloyd Wright let few details escape him, including the design of the dining table, which he believed should seat no more than six. After both the Buehlers’ deaths, the house was sold to Gerald Shmavonian, whom Smith describes as a collector of all things. Shmavonian began opening the house to wedding parties and events — Vogue magazine named it one of the five best places in the country to get married — and soon was confronted by cul de sac neighbors, who complained about traffic and noise. The city also fined him, but Smith says Shmavonian has reached an agreement with Orinda to permit the events to continue. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”]Shmavonian also is at odds with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation of Scottsdale, Arizona, which has sued him for trademark infringement over his website, http://www.franklloydwrightestate.com. Proceeds from the tour are earmarked for the Frank Lloyd Wright Revival Initiative’s efforts to save Wright-designed buildings. The initiative was originally formed to raise money to rebuild a Wright pavilion in Alberta, Canada. Miner says after the demolition of one of Wright’s Prairie School buildings in 2018, the group expanded its mission to preserve existing Wright structures that are threatened. To date, it has committed $200,000 toward the acquisitions of the Spring House in Tallahassee, Florida, and $25,000 for the Pappas House Foundation in St. Louis, Missouri. It also has committed to raise $45,000 to preserve what remains of the Oboler Estate in Malibu, which was destroyed in last year’s Woolsey Fire, and for rebuilding.

WKRN
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — For eight seasons, Craig Stevens made a career out of catching footballs for the Tennessee Titans, now the former tight end is using his hands to create handcrafted furniture, all made from wood. “My dad growing up he worked construction,” Stevens said. “He built our house and my grandma’s house, so he taught me how to use tools. Ever since I was born, I grew up with a hammer in my hand.” Stevens always enjoyed woodworking as a hobby, even when he was playing for the Titans. “I didn’t by a fancy car or expensive shoes, I’d buy a nice tool with my game check,” he said. But when he retired from football, it was time to take it to the next level. “My wife would want a piece of furniture, so I’d look at a magazine and it would be a ridiculous price,” he explained. So he studied up on different styles and created some spectacular pieces for their home. Similar to his playing days, Stevens considers himself a perfection in the shop, but he’s accepted these projects all take time. “You get better, you make mistakes, but you know how to fix and adapt. That is what makes you a better woodworker,” Stevens added. From rocking chairs to mantlepieces and even garbage cans, Stevens loves to share his work with others. “I do most stuff for other people, for my wife and kids,” he said. “I don’t make money, but I enjoy doing it.” There were always stories to tell every season with the Titans, now his stories are shared in a different way. “The cool thing is there are a lot of people who can build a table but it’s nice to have a story behind the table like this is where the wood came from and this is who built it. That’s the cool thing about woodworking,” said Stevens.

VICKY Pattison has opened up the night she was arrested in her family home for the first time since she was charged with assault in 2014. Appearing on Fabulous magazine’s new podcast Things I Told My Daughter, the former Geordie Shore star told host Lisa Snowdon that the incident in a Newcastle nightclub was “one of the lowest moments of my life”. Vicky appeared on Fabulous’ new podcast Things I Told My Daughter hosted by Lisa Snowdon with mum Caroll Vicky, 31, had been filming an episode of Geordie Shore in the VIP area of Florita’s bar when she hit two women with her stilettos after ice was thrown over her and the cast. Discussing the night with her mother Caroll Pattinson, Vicky said: “I was so drunk and so unhappy, I didn’t even recognise the magnitude of what I’d done.” Shortly after the incident, Vicky – then aged 26 – asked MTV if she could go home early to her parent’s house. She recalled: “I said, ‘I’m going home, I want to be on the sofa and be with my Mam.’ Vicky starred in Geordie Shore from 2011 until 2014 Vicky and Caroll appeared on the first episode of Fabulous’ new podcast Things I Told My Daughter hosted by Lisa Snowdon “MTV said ‘that’s fine’. I don’t think they understood the severity of what had happened.” However, the enormity of her actions quickly began to dawn on Vicky when she arrived back at the family home. She added: “Mum and Dad were lying in bed and I was like… I’ve really f**ked it. I’ve really done something stupid. I went downstairs to watch some telly and it completely snowballed from there.” Vicky’s mum Caroll described the police turning up on her doorstep as “the most horrendous thing” she’s even experienced. She said: “They were heavy handed, very very heavy handed. ‘Where’s this? Where’s her room. Where’s this? We need to find her shoes. You’re hiding them from us.’ Vicky says she was too drunk to ‘recognise the magnitude of what she’d done’ Vicky says she was feeling ‘down, demoralised and sensitive’ after filming a season of Geordie Shore in Australia right before the incident “All of these police were running all over the house. They searched the whole house. I’ve never had the police in my house before and I was in shock.” Caroll claims the police even looked in her washing machine as part of their extensive house search. She added: “They were talking to her horrible, they were talking to us horrible. It was absolutely hideous. I’ve got so much respect for the police and I think they do a hell of a job, but I was in shock.” However, the reality of the situation really hit home for Caroll when she saw her daughter being led away in handcuffs. Vicky described her 2013 arrest as ‘one of her lowest moments’ on Fabulous’ podcast The mum recalled: “They put her in handcuffs and took her away. I just broke down. I was on the floor crying. “It was the most horrendous thing I’ve ever had to watch and go through. It was hideous, my bairn being taken away by the police like that. I just felt useless as a mam. You want to protect your own.” Before the nightclub incident in July 2013, Vicky had been filming season six of Geordie Shore in Australia which left her feeling “down, demoralised and sensitive.” After the incident in the nightclub, Vicky says she “was a shadow of her former self” and took time off the show. The star claims MTV told her to “take your time… we’ll just replace you.” Vicky’s mum Carole says she ‘was always proud of her’ even though ‘there were a couple of things [she] wouldn’t have done’In February 2014, Vicky was spared jail for the assaults but was ordered by a judge to pay £1,350 prosecution costs and £4,750 to her two victims. Just a few months later, Vicky quit the show which made her a star before going on to be crowned Queen of the Jungle in 2015. In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Vicky said she was “happier than ever” after the win and said her mum “made no secret of the fact she hated Geordie Shore”. Discussing her daughter’s rollercoaster television career on the debut Fabulous podcast, Caroll said: “I was always proud of her. “There were a couple of things that I wouldn’t have done but I’ve always supported her, even when she was in Geordie Shore. There were times when people stopped speaking to me. “Friends, and people who I’d thought would be really supportive. No, they would avoid me or not talk to me because my daughter was in Geordie Shore.” Caroll claims friends and family ‘came out the woodwork’ after Vicky won I’m a Celebrity in 2015 What’s more, Caroll claims even members of Vicky’s family “would avoid talking about her” because of her television work. She added: “It was amazing how many people came out of the woodwork when you did win I’m a Celebrity.
