Comment:

The road is to the left. The large windows are on the north face and opened into Gardner Rea's studio. The west face is the "back;" the only way into the original house was from this side. On the west face, between the chimney and the window with an awning, is a long whitish "slit;" this was a floor to eve door used to take large pieces of artwork in and out of his studio.

Sometime after 1966, a substantial addition has been added to the west face, eliminating the original entrance. See other photographs.
