Update on the Bachman Wilson House

The Art Newspaper has an update on the Usonian house moved piece by peice from New Jersey to Arkansas in two 53' shipping containers.

Dismantling fell to the Tarantinos, with each piece carefully inventoried and labelled, and in April, the house, together with its fixtures and furnishings, arrived in Arkansas in two 53ft containers. “Getting it here was a real milestone; it arrived in a thousand individually wrapped pieces,” says Scott Eccleston, the director of grounds and facilities at the museum. “Each piece is stamped and has a drawing attached to it, so we know exactly how it fits into the structure,” he says. “Having these drawings offers me some peace of mind that the reconstruction will, hopefully, go smoothly.”

Reassembling the house will begin later this month, and it will open for tours next summer.
