Over the weekend, a couple of PrairieMod Squad members had a chance to see a stunning example of one of Edgar Miller's handmade homes. Portoluz, a Chicago-based non-profit dedicated to preserving the city's progressive cultural identity, hosted a lecture by craftsman Larry Zgoda which took place in the original Edgar Miller-designed Sol Kogen Studio located in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago.

Edgar worked for decades on this special home and his passion for art and life can be seen in every room and on almost every surface imaginable. If you have the where-with-all, this amazing home could be yours to enjoy everyday, since it's currently for sale for $1.8 million...if I had the money I would buy it in an instant.

Thanks to Portoluz for organizing this unforgettable opportunity. To learn more about Edgar Miller's life and work, I highly recommend getting a copy of Edgar Miller and the Hand-Made Home: Chicago's Forgotten Renaissance Man...it's one of my all-time favorite books!
