Dear Julie:

I was looking up information on your grandfather and came across your post. I have seen many pictures of schools Vincent designed and a would like to see homes. Is there a source? I am of course well acquainted with your great-grandfather's work. I am one of your Indiana cousins.
We would like to hear from you.


Hi Larry,

: I was just looking up some information on my grandfather & came across your post. Looks like you found out a little info already. If you would like to know more please feel free to contact me. We we're really close, I actually live in one of his homes now too. They are pretty spectacular! Hope you are enjoying yours as much as I am enjoying mine.

: Best to you,
: Julie Raney

: : We bought a home in Delano, CA 10 years ago. We found the original blueprints and found out the house was designed by mr Raney in 1950 and built with all the materials and partly designed like the sunset house in 1939. If I didn't no better, you would think it was a frank L. wright home. Would like to receive any info I could on Vincent G. Raney. Did he study under Frank Lloyd Wright??
: : Our home has plenty of redwood, glass and extra high ceilings. When it was built in 1954, it was way to modern for the neighborhood and some neighbors tried to stop. At the time the person who had it built was the mayor of Delano. Needless to say it was built. We pulled the carpet up and found redoak hardwood floors. Stripped the paint off the kitchen and family room walls and found phillipine mahogeny. It makes us sick that the previous owner PAINTED over the solid redwood beams in the family room. Rumor has it that under the painted walls in the living room is Black Walnut. We use a pole with a hook to open the many transum windows in the home. Any info you could provide would be appreciated
: : thank you in advance.
