"In the Realm of Ideas" house also had overbuilt bathrooms to accommodate Kohler facilities in return for financial support.

Lotsa pics. This is the "red one"---postwar equivalent to 1929 Jones residence . . .?

Here is another link to the Pappas House:

https://photos.riverfronttimes.com/stunning-frank-lloyd-wright-designed-pappas-house-for-sale-in-st-louis/?slide=1&97bab96cea62171e2865fc033106b24dl-m3xd-w1020_h770_q80

It is not a very attractive house, and while the price might seem "low," it appears in need of a lot of attentiion.

I doubt that another Usonian Automatic has as dramatic a cantilevered roof as the one seen in this 1985 photo by Thomas Heinz:






Here's the rest of my Pappas image library:

Been trying to coordinate the early plan of Pappas with the elevation to
understand the high volumes along the entry side (north plan side) of the house.
Ive been counting modules and it looks like the south side of the long clerestroy wall does not come down directly upon a wall below,
but on a unit line over the hall way ...?

Don't assume that any published drawings of a single Wright structure will agree with each other. B B Pfeiffer, bless his soul, did not go so far in his editing of the work, in multiple publications, as to tell
the reader almost anything about design sequence---and we know from apprentices and others that Mr Wright was given to re-thinking any part of a project, up to and even during the construction phase . . .

This is a wonderful house, inside and out, but it desperately needs better landscaping. The nature of concrete blocks calls for a softening provided by plants. Turkel, Kalil, Tonkens and Lloyd-Jones could benefit greatly by some work in the gardens as well. Tracy looks great in its setting.
