Baker Residence - 1913
William Drummond, an important figure among Prairie School architects designed this dramatic Prairie Style house for Ralph Baker in 1913. Among its special features are a double-height living room and a broadly horizontal roofline that is quintessential Prairie Style.
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. The first floor contains a suite of 3 large reception rooms, as well as the kitchen, a small bedroom and a half-bath. The second floor has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. There is also a single room occupying the third floor, potentially a study or private retreat space. The house has outside dimensions of approximately 54' x 60'.

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. (PR003)
