From the article:
Quote:
Mrs. Rant and Mrs. Elin were sisters, according to Crain's Chicago Business, which first reported the sale. A few years after their home was completed, the Rants expanded on Goff's design, adding a garage and a second story. According to Crain's, they hired the firm Perkins & Will, which had designed Winnetka's Crow Island School in 1940, to design the addition.


I suppose that explains the addition matching the character of the original...I still prefer the simplicity of the original build.
