ASB in Camp Point, IL ?

Ernest Wood is not listed in any of Geiger's lists of apprentices, non-apprentices or associates. He might have been the contractor who purchased the ASB kit and assembled it... or this was just inspired by his study of FLW.

He had a nice little office.
Note that the National Register paperwork does not state or imply that he worked with Wright; he was just a proponent of the style.

Does the outward appearance of the house match a known ASB model type? The house is handsome in any case, it would be interesting to see its interior or its floor plan.

Mike Lilek told me he was going to look it up in his ASB archive.

On the May 2012 Google Street View the trim on the house is painted red. The brown trim in the photo in Herald-Whig article may be more recent ? That photo, taken from a point quite close to the house, makes the structure appear somewhat taller -- or more vertical, anyway -- than what appears in the street view. I seem to recall that we looked at this house before -- but maybe one leafy and generously-scaled midwestern residential neighborhood looks much like another ?
