That's My Kind of Carport

H E Ledbetter Home in NormanDuring a recent visit to the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, I was reminded how many interesting homes there are in Norman. Driving north on Chautauqua Avenue we spotted one of our favorites on the corner of Brooks.

Behind the sandstone wall is a home built in 1948 designed by Oklahoma's own Bruce Goff. The house combines natural materials with straight clean lines.

Viewed from the street the H. E. Ledbetter home is probably one of Goff's more "usual" designs. Although the circular awning suspended over the drive is pretty darn unusual.

Wow, that is a nice and very modern styled carport. I don't believe that I have ever seen a carport like this before. I usually am a big fan a metal carports with side panels; they tend to help keep weather from hitting my cars from from the sides. But this carport has a very elegant appeal.

Postscript.
