Re: How much does your home cost???

bpp,

thanks for the little insight into japanese housing/architecture! Most of those new houses look very "modern" compared to the much more "traditional" (from a US perspective) new housing coming on the mkt around the southern/midatlantic US.

above is the prairie house, here's an early 1900's japanese tea house. in regard to wab's posted house pic, you decide who influenced what (or what influenced who).

Re: How much does your home cost???

I didn't do anything with opportunity costs.

$39.18* per day
$.014* per sq. ft. per day on 2800 sq. ft.

If I drop out Cable and DSL, then those go down to:

$36.32
$.013

This includes our high 15.x cents per KWH electric rates, security lighting and 2 1/2 HP I-G pool pump, lots of A/C, in addition to the electrical loads that most of you have.

I didn't mean to say that Wright didn't have a big influence on modern Japanese architecture -- he was acclaimed in Japan early on, perhaps even moreso than in the US for a time -- or that he wasn't a genius. I was just trying to say that he in turn had probably been influenced by Japanese traditional art and architecture (which may also help explain his early acceptance in Japan). Here are some pictures of traditional-style Japanese interiors (from Misawa Home) that show a lot of the geometrical motifs that Wright may have picked up on (linearity, horizontals):
http://www.misawa-mrd.com/wasitu/whats/ie_index_f.html

The shelves in this example, which go back in style to medieval Japan, somehow remind me of Wright's cantilevers:


Speaking of Greek influences, there is a temple in Asuka, Japan, built around 600-700 AD, with bulging, muscular columns (a departure from previous native styles), which is thought by some to have been influenced by those of the Parthenon, at the opposite end of the Silk Road. Cross-fertilization has been going on forever.

love the interior you posted. i think i would be very comfortable in a traditional japanese house. i happen to love a lot of the asian culture (and i think it is wonderful you get to live there): its people, art, design, religions, philosophies, and especially the food. not sure i'd be crazy about a 2,500 square foot lot though, my gardens already extend onto the neighbors' properties and i'm on almost a 1/4 downtown acre.
