I sent an email to Roland, just in case he, or anyone he knows, might be interested. I would be most interested in Pew and Rebhuhn, but am not eager to drop $1,100 or $1,800 respectively on them. The unbuilt Rebhuhn Project would be especially interesting.

The Usonia II jobs are early along in the design process, in the offered drawing sets, judging by the naming of the locale as "Mt Pleasant" rather than the later and more correct "Pleasantville." Curiously,
growing up in Westchester, I often heard of Pleasantville -- one of our football team's rivals -- but never of Mt Pleasant. Both names appear on various drawings and letters in Roland Reisley's book . . .

Likewise, the first sheet in the Pew collection, a blue-line rather that a blueprint, shows the house in its early version, the masonry being brick rather than stone. The treatment of the stair is interesting.

The site plan is the revised version of the Usonia Homes layout: "CIRCLES ENLARGED FROM 200- TO 217-FOOT DIAMETER -- A 'BUILDER'S ACRE.' " according to Reisley's caption.

I have recorded via screen grabs the Rebhuhn set. Most interesting . . .

Click on the blueprints to enlarge them (1600x1066 pix), to save them if you want.

Thanks -- that's what I did, once I'd discovered (by accident) how it works . . .

Here are the Rebhuhn (1952) and Fuller (1950) cottage entries in Taschen III:

According to Roland Reisley, these are duplicates of materials f"in the Henken archive at OA+D being sold to acquire other material."

One slight correction:

These particular plans on eBay are privately owned, not OA+D's
