I have a couple of copies of this book

Provides a nice insight into the family, commission, construction and then relocation of the house.
Probably aimed at those who actually go to the Museum and want some sort of memento.

As a study of FLW house - its kinda disappointing - very few drawings, not many photos on how the house was put together - ie staging of construction and no indication of its lineage of a design i e linear.

mind you, considering the lack of other published information, it has been helpful in creating my 3D model of it.

Drawings can now be seen at Avery archives./ARTSTOR

other pojects of similar linear design include

Frank A. Rentz house (Madison, Wisconsin). Unbuilt Project 1940

Interesting. There aren't many instances of a nearly identical masonry core configuration being employed in different ways, I'd bet. Here, two houses have their stair located where, in the third, the dining table is placed . . .

Of course, Penfield belongs in the same lineage.
