there may not be a posting here of the basic drawings and photos of the house. You will find several images, however, on the thread titled Mitered
Windows -- and another thread, The First Usonian, has a lot of distracting images of other houses in the category !
The only published monograph on the house, as far as I know, is an out-of-print paperbound volume called "Affordable Dreams." At Amazon right
now used copies are available -- for $249.00 or more !
A Wright Chat member named Mobius has posted his collection of material on the house, found here: http://4sure.co.nz/gw/
Let us know what you find -- and stay in touch.
This book can still be obtained from the Kresge Art Museum (which is part of Michigan State University) for the extremely reasonable price of $19.95 (plus shipping).SDR wrote:The only published monograph on the house, as far as I know, is an out-of-print paperbound volume called "Affordable Dreams."

floor plans -- and it is essentially the story of the pre-war houses, with only the post-war Berger house getting a large floor plan. After covering
Broadacres, a final chapter reproduces some pages from House and Home showing Erdman, Oskaloosa, and Zimmerman, at small scale.
There are no elevation drawings, but there is a large-scale extract of the Standard Detail Sheet, detail photos, and some construction photos of
Richardson. The text is ample and informative, with voluminous end notes.
I have just about every image available in just one location: http://4sure.co.nz/gw/ - It's a folder listing, so just opne the images in a new window for each link.
Included are some fascinating "study" pics of the GW house.

threads under the keywords "Affordable Dreams."
I'm happy to see a couple of interior shots, by others, that I contributed to that group. Of course it is an exaggeration to say that this represents just
about every image of Goetsch-Winckler available -- but there are a number of unique offerings there, and we are fortunate to have it. Thanks for your
work. Are the many "EL" interior shots your own -- made on a visit to the house ?
Here is just one more image -- the millwork sheet from the Taliesin drawing set, as reproduced in "Affordable Dreams." There are twenty other
drawings, and nine photographic plates, in the book.
