James' chalkboard timeline offered much-needed research on neighborhood
including aerial maps and articles about Ralph Haver and his associates.
James used a surplus-bought chalkboard from Arizona State University
to fill in blanks through Windemere's history.
The Richärd Residence's front lawn was an inviting semi-public space that drew members further into the home tour.
Joint compound was manipulated to form this combed texture on both sides
of a dividing wall.
This wall treatment was a feature members couldn't stop talking about.
Like many Windemere residences, the Richärd's backyard features
a modest kidneybean pool
with classic springboard diver. The corruegated-clad area is an encosure of the original driveway pad.

and semi-glazed by the blue of dusk...
Sturdy wire bins containing recovered and distressed bricks await laying.
The peak turnout was well over 100, the majority of whom were ModPhx members.
Seven door prizes generously donated by community members were a big draw to the ModPhx volunteer table.
