HISTORY: One of Frank Lloyd Wright's early designs, when he was still an employee in the Chicago office of Louis Sullivan. The design contains elements of Sullivan's own unique type of ornament, which Wright reproduced amazingly well. This is a city mansion, with grand interior spaces.

As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. The plan is ideally suited for a flat site. This house would be comfortable in an urban or suburban setting. This spacious home has outside dimensions of approximately 26' x 66' plus terraces.

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
