Charles and Henry Greene, along with Gustav Stickley and many of the architects and builders who practiced their trades in the early s. We freely interpreted their work to fit our own personal likes and dislikes. Frank Lloyd Wright window designs can be found throughout our house. To build the house we had to live on the site, so we purchased a travel trailer and towed it up to our empty land.
We then started our search for a supplier of timber-frame building materials. Almost from the beginning we knew that we were going to be the builders. This was a much bigger decision than we realized at the time. In the days to come, we often questioned the decision. But now as we look back at the entire project, we are both convinced that the decision was correct. Then we began phase one of construction. We can still remember that wonderful feeling when that first truck carrying the timbers appeared on the road at the bottom of our hill.
Three trucks later, we asked ourselves: Where did all those pieces fit into the house puzzle and how are those giant oak beams going to stand up in the air and support the walls and floors? The Riverbend representative took control, and in a short time the beams went one place in a certain order and the panels were stashed somewhere else, also in a certain order. The next day we reviewed the plans and before we knew it, the first bent was lifted into place by the Riverbend crane.
For the next four days we were amazed how fast and smooth everything went. At the end of the five days, the entire frame was raised, and two of the exterior walls were up and secured. At this point the Riverbend advisor and all of our friends returned to their other lives. The sixth day was a memorable one.
We woke at 6 a. By , we realized that it was now up to us to complete the house. We were looking at wooden beams sticking in the air, some panels attached and a lot of materials still sitting on the ground. The whole structure resembled the framework of a giant cathedral. We looked at each other with terror in our eyes. We had both done a lot of things in our lives, but nothing even came close to what we were looking at right then.
After a few more cups of coffee and some advice from our neighbors who had gone through a similar experience, we started on what was to be the journey of a lifetime. Phase two was the installation of heating, plumbing, electrical and gypsum-board walls—most difficult to easiest in that order. Phase four — cabinets and floors — lasted almost a year, so it was not only the most time-intensive but also the most expensive. We built the cabinets onsite using maple and cherry, with a Greene-and-Greene inspired cloud lift pattern on the bottom rails.

The upper-cabinet doors included leaded-glass panels made by Mary in a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired design. Floors were four-inch oak planks with walnut trim. We decided to build a staircase based on designs in two famous Greene-and-Greene homes in Pasadena, and used another Greene-and-Greene home, the Thorsen House, as the design for our front door, which includes stained glasswork by Mary.

15 of the best bikepacking bags — luggage for lightweight adventures
The Mag-Tank takes a new twist on top tube bags. Instead of a zippered opening, access to the bag is by a smartly contoured top flap held in place by a magnetic buckle with mechanical engagement read - the magnet aids in closure, while load is placed on a connection. It will not unintentionally open and spill your gummy bears when you end up in the trees with your bike upside down like a conventional magnetic closure would. You can easily open the bag one handed by pulling outward on the cord loop and you have access to the whole top of the bag.
To close, just flick the flap down and the buckle self-engages! The Mag-Tank is just a hair smaller than Revelate's Gas Tank to prevent leg movement from hitting the edge of the flap opening.
