Quick Facts

This is a report about the construction of a Usonian style home beginning in 2002, and ending in the Fall of 2004. The Owner/Architect studied Wright’s Usonian architecture for fifty years, beginning with visits to homes under construction and others nearing completion in the 1950’s. For many years he desired to experience Usonian living, and in 2000 he began to design a modest Usonian home for his family. In 2002, construction began to re-create the Usonian experience. The house has a “T” shaped plan, with traditional Usonian rooms and spaces except for the inclusion of a separate dining space, moderately sized kitchen and two car garage.
