Clarke Residence - 1916
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.
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. These plans are ideal for a flat site. Built over a basement, the first floor has a living/dining room, an enclosed porch opening off the dining room, kitchen and half-bath to one side, and a 1+ car garage in back. The second floor has 6 bedrooms and 3 baths. The house has outside dimensions of approximately 48' x 72'.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, by US Postal Service, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube.
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 Prairie Style home, not a pseudo-prairie tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf. (PR002)
