Sam was referring to his own living room, which is a medium sized square enclosed in a large square. The "useful" portion is quite modest in scale, while the periphery gives the whole a sense of grandeur rarely found in such a small residence.

Another instance is the modest-sized living room in Ennis, which measures 24'x17'4" at floor level, but the upper space extends over the dining room in one direction and Mabel's bath in the other for a total length of more than 40'.

I'm not sure that Wright designed a garage for a residence after the Jacobs house. Anyone?


I believe that one of the Erdman prefabs has a garage--the one that was designed for Wright's physician (and was later moved). The physician insisted on a garage reasoning that when he got an emergency call in the middle of a night with freezing midwest temperatures, he needed to know that his car would start.

This is the same house that was moved, was a B&B for awhile, and was recently for sale. (Jackson house in Beaver Dam)

Thank you. Storrer illustrates nine Erdman #1 plans; Van Tamelen, Duncan, Cass, Zaferiou, and LaFond are shown with carports, Jackson, Iber, Post, and Mollica have the "garage kit," a $400 option which didn't include "local purchases such as garage doors."
