  Barton House - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The George Barton House in Buffalo, New York ( USA) was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and constructed in 1903 for George Barton, an employee of the Larkin Company, and his wife Della Martin Barton (sister of Darwin D. Martin).
The house was sited at the northern corner of the lot shared by the Darwin D. Martin House.
The basic floor plan of this house is cruciform, with the dining room, living space library, and reception areas freely open to one another as discrete subdivisions of a continuous space, similar to Wright's Henderson House.

 Barton House v. Indigo Bistro & Bar - Kentucky   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Barton House appealed to this court on very limited grounds, asking only that we remand to the Board with directions to remand to the ALJ for an order requiring Indigo to reimburse Barton House for TTD payments made as a result of the ALJ's erroneous ruling.
Barton House notes that the ALJ entered an agreed order, signed by counsel for the parties, which provided that if it was ultimately determined that reimbursement was necessary between the parties and their insurance carriers, such reimbursement would be ordered.
Indigo argues that Barton House should be responsible for all of Wright's TTD, or at least for a substantial part of it, because evidence exists that all of Wright's disability is due to his Barton House injury.

Completing the composition to the north is the pergola, which extends to the greenhouse, connecting in turn to the garage and the Barton House (the residence of Darwin D. Martin's sister and her family).
As the Martin House was originally completed to Wright's designs, we enter from the street to the south by first walking toward the porte-cochère at the west end of the dwelling, then turning right and following the six-foot tall brick wall along the edge of the house up a half flight of stairs.
The difference in our experience between sitting and standing in the Martin House is astonishing, indicating that, for Wright, the drawn floor plan was only one of many horizontal layers of space that he carefully modulated to the occupants' activity and the resulting position of their gaze.

By convention, the Prime Minister is the leader of the party or coalition which has the most seats in the lower house of the Federal Parliament, the House of Representatives.
At the time of Federation, no parliament had yet been established, so Edmund Barton was temporarily appointed as Prime Minister until elections were held.
While the Prime Minister normally will have a majority in the House of Representatives, attaining the support of the Senate can be more difficult, since there the Government will often be in a minority.

Only one was lost to forces of nature, a waterfront home in Mississippi destroyed by a hurricane in the 1960s; although, the Ennis-Brown House in California had been damaged by earthquake and rain-induced ground movement.
While a number of the houses are preserved as museum pieces and millions of dollars are spent on their upkeep, other houses have trouble selling on the open market due to their unique designs, generally small size and outdated features.
