Drummond Residence - 1909
When it came time to build his own house in 1909, architect William Drummond chose as his model Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic 1905 design for a �fireproof house for $5000�. Wright�s design inspired many architects of the time and resulted in endless variations on the theme. Drummond�s certainly qualifies as one of the most imaginative and well executed.
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 living room. The kitchen is to one side. The second floor has 5 bedrooms and 1 bath. This could easily be adapted to 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. The house has outside dimensions of approximately 37' x 56'.

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. (PR004)
