...keep the home fires burning

The temperature dropped in Chester County, PA and it is no longer as hot as well, a flame. I am calculating for carpeting in a contemporary home with open staircases. Talk about math! It is a very Frank Lloyd Wright-esque styled home with similar lines and layout. My carpet installer is excellent so I have no worries regarding that. The clients create a warm, comfortable atmosphere and every time I visit it is a Zen like experience. Speaking of warmth, home and hearth...on this day in 1914 a male servant of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright set fire to the living quarters of the architect's Wisconsin home, Taliesin, murders seven people and burns the living quarters to the ground. Perhaps he was denied a well deserved raise? Be nice, work hard and use caution when striking a match. Today's photo is from a refurbished home that caught on fire. The family went through hell but no one was injured thank God.
