That is the FLW house that inspired my father to build his house the way he did. Very, VERY cool. Enjoy.

Water features/fountains, but no falling water. It's very indoor/outdoor. The entire back of the house is windows/doors. Stone/Brick floors inside. It's very FLW meets Stone Mason.

Is this the house have a glass floor running through the middle of the living room and you can see the stream running under the house and going over the waterfall?
