HISTORY: The Storer Residence was built in 1923 for John Storer. It rises on its hillside, like a Mayan temple, surveying the valley below. It is one of just a handful of Wright's "textile block" designs that was built fully according to his vision.

The house is organized on a split level arrangement, with 4 bedrooms in a 2 story block to the west, set a half level down from the 2 story central block which contains dining and living spaces. The daily entry is on the west side, along with a small bath and bedroom. However visitors would have arrived by parking in the driveway and walking up a series of terraces to the dining room level.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube. This listing includes architectural prints ONLY. Any photos shown in the description are for information only and are NOT included in your purchase. Thanks.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are not complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL historic house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf

The original drawings from which these dimensionally accurate scans were made are kept at the Historic American Building Survey, in the Library of Congress. (WR005)
