This single-axle wooden house was designed to be pulled down highways by small-engine vehicles ... seats 6 at table, sleeps 2, featuring corner windows, flat roof with clerestory windows, and an open fireplace, all at a cost of about $30,000.00 US.

Yup. Nice to see it again; more and better images would be fine -- and more work of the kind. Wright's is a philosophy and a formal language which can be reduced to virtually any scale -- and indeed which can be advantageous, at any scale, in terms of cost --
of labor if not of material quantity . . .

Wright's sitting furniture presented an unusual challenge to the designer, simply because nature didn't provide a convenient interface between its biomorphic forms and the pure and reductive geometry which man acquired from the larger universe.

But that failing has nothing to do with every other means Wright found to make his clients comfortable, both psychically and physically. And those means are available, in one form or another, in structures of every conceivable size -- it seems to me.
