You have got to love Cabelas!

   If you can't find it anywhere go to Cabelas  I wish they would put a store right in the middle of Coweta County.

Newnan|Real Estate: local motifs have to start with the Pine & Indians

The Greene Brothers followed the Arts & Crafts philosophy of design, take what is nature around you and incorporate your building into it and of course the bedrock of Arts & Crafts building is workmanship  .  Their designs are being copied to this day.
The other arts and crafts motif I think has been overlooked in this area is the heritage of the Creek Indians whose civilization was relatively sophisticated at the time it was eradicated.

|NEWNAN| needs more cantilever architecture

  The amazing cantilever physics/architectural phenomenon must have fascinated Frank Lloyd Wright his entire life.  It is a fantastic thing to see in a home.  We need to see more of it in Coweta County, Georgia

A Beautiful Picture of Falling Water

This fantastic picture of Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water creation for the Kauffman family built in the beautiful southwestern part of Pennsylvania illustrates the mantra of location, location, location and the intertwining of human creation and nature.  I have always loved knowing that the stones used in its construction were created by hand on site!

For reference:  here is a good website for Tiffany styled lighting || Arts&Crafts Lighting ||

The Greene brothers of turn of the century California were in the early Arts & Crafts movement here in the United States.  I think their architecture lends itself to ranch house renovations and of course to horse farms.  Here is a Greene & Greene website that is great: GAMBLEHOUSE
