HISTORIC HOME PLANS
FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT HOME PLANS
Frank Lloyd Wright, father of the Prairie Style, destroyer of 'the box', inventor of construction techniques, in a career spanning 8 decades, produced a body of residential work rivalled by no other architect. A few of his hundreds of homes have been measured by the Historical American Building Survey (HABS). These documents are a rare resource available to the public, an insight into the mind of a man considered by many to be the greatest designer of his time.

Tan y Deri - 1907

"Tan y Deri", Welsh for "under the oaks", was the name that Frank Lloyd Wright chose for this beautiful home, designed for his sister Jane, and built of shingles and stone.

The Prairie School, that truly American form of architecture, has its roots in the Midwestern plains, especially the state of Illinois. Wright popularized the style both through his built designs and also through his many publications. In the April 1907 edition of Ladies Home Journal he published a design for a "fireproof house" that became the inspiration to architects and builders all over the country. Wright himself built several variations on this seminal design. At Tan y Deri Wright extends this example, not only by varying the materials, but also by setting the house on a slope, over a raised basement, effectively turning it into a 3 story design.

The basement contains a large room with a fireplace and French doors, as well as utility rooms and a bathroom. Potentially one of the utility rooms could be made into a bedroom. The first floor contains Living, Dining and Kitchen areas flowing freely one to the next. There is also a bath on this level. The second floor contains 4 bedrooms, a sleeping porch and two small bathrooms.

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 prints you are purchasing are crisp, high resolution black line copies on white bond paper. The original drawings were beautifully delineated in 1995.

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 Frank Lloyd Wright home, not a pseudo-Wright tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf.
