The Prairie Style, that truly American form of architecture, has its roots in the Midwestern plains. Francis Barry Byrne designed this elegant Prairie Style house for Dr. James Clarke in 1916. Built on a somewhat narrow city lot in Fairfield, Iowa, it represents a very effective solution for an open plan Prairie Style house, adapted to city conditions. The floor plan is compact but with a free flow of space within the house and from within to the outdoors. Among its unusual features are its exterior of brick and the large arched window in the living room..

The prints you are purchasing are crisp, high resolution black line copies on white bond paper. Any photos shown in the description are informational only and are NOT included in your purchase. The original, public domain drawings were prepared by the Historical American Building Survey and rest in the Library of Congress.

IMPORTANT - IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as will be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. Nor are they designed to meet current building codes. These are measured drawings of actual historic American homes that provide accurate design information about these homes. Your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary.
