Product Description Don and Virginia Lovness went to see Frank Lloyd Wright in 1955 in 1955 at Taliesin, where he agreed to design a home for them. Over the next two years they built the "studio" by hand - laying stone, concrete, framing and finishing the wood and even building the furniture. Wright called them his "Do-it-yourself Couple" and in 1975 they finished a second Wright home, the "cottage." Over the years they became part of the Taliesin inner circle, becoming close to Mrs. Wright, Wes Peters and all of the others at Spring Green and Scottsdale. Their two girls grew up immersed in the Wright culture and here, eldest daughter Lonnie tells the story of a dynamic couple from humble origins who built two homes, and a lasting relationship with the Taliesin Fellowship.
