A Fresh Look at Greene & Greene with Darrell Peart Web Seminar Download


SKU: T7172 Categories: ,

Darrell Peart gives us a fresh look like never before at some of Greene & Greene’s early furniture designs, and sheds new light on the detail that went into their pieces.


During the talk, Darrell was asked about the value of one of the homes that was being discussed. He later researched that, and here’s a more-accurate answer from Darrell: “It was asked how much it originally cost to build one of the Greene’s Ultimate Bungalows.”

One of the participants replied with something like 3/4 of a million for the Blacker House if I remember correctly?

The correct cost numbers were found in Randell Makinson&rsquos book The Blacker House (page 25) published by Smith Gibbs in 2000.

Main House, furniture, fixtures, and grounds $70,925

Keepers’ House and Garage total $5,771

Pergola (1910) $1,321

Billiard Room (1910) $3,650

Furniture (partial in 1912) $544

Additions to sleeping porch (1914) $1,019
