Mike, as you know, our interest in Usonian design has intrigued me for years. We wanted a home that was smaller in size, but well appointed with the clean beautiful lines and manipulation of light that FLW captured in his beautiful work. After exhaustive research on the internet, reading several books on Wright and the Usonian concept, we found you on the web.
After receiving your concept drawings and visiting with you, we made our decision to move forward. The design process was truly collaborative. After coming out visit the Texas Hill Country and our land, the first renderings we received from you were absolutely awesome. You were able to take our wish list and apply your own creative design (carrying on the FLW Usonian concept), update construction methods, and utilize modern utilities and materials. The advice and consultation you contributed in helping us select our builder was invaluable. As we learned, not all builders warmed up to this design criteria. Together, we found a builder that understood the concept and methods and worked around a budget we could live with.
Best of all, we are proud to have The Mike Rust name on the design. You have worked hard to achieve your own style and methods. To be able to find a former Taliesin fellow, a great architect and make a new friend is much more than what Julie and I ever expected. We are very excited and look forward to many years enjoying our new home.
Thank you again.
