What a beautiful story about the house and how it came to be. The presentation is poetic and an inspiration on design, family and love.

The reason the "Attic" is finished out in such a fine manner is that it was designed as the "Billiard Room" but since the gambles had no interest in billiards the room was designated as the attic on the final set of plans. I suspect the uncompromising nature of the architects prevented them from dumbing down the plans even though the Gambles didn't intend to make use of the room for anything but storage.
