“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” ~Frank Lloyd Wright

As soon as we became official empty nesters in 2008, Doug and I purchased a Frank Lloyd Wright house that needed our help. To read an essay I wrote for Michigan Blue about our decision to buy the home in western Michigan, please click here.  To view photos of the interiors (and Doug’s extensive renovations), visit the Carl Schultz House web site.  

And for more about our family adventures at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Carl Schultz during the pandemic, look for my Newsweek essay here.)
