Does anyone know if plan sections of the Kraus House have been published? I have elevations from Monograph #8 1951-59 and a plan from Jane King Hession's book about the home. Still on the hunt for the ever interesting sections. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Not readily available; I have not seen them in publication. It would be interesting to know if drawings exist at the site; many Wright owners seem to have had at least some drawing sheets among their possessions.

Here's a fluid and entertaining introduction to the house, its owners, and their replacements, along with a few anecdotes.

As drawings are not plentiful, I was looking for interior images to take their place. Few of these seem in evidence, as well ...

(Incredibly slow loading; there are five interior images of the house.)

The book, "The Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park" by Jane King Hession, out at least since 2015, is not shown at Amazon, and the few other
retailers (including the Kraus house shop) do not divulge the contents---so there seems no way to know if drawings not found elsewhere are included.

Jane King Hession seems to be on a roll. She has written several books on FLW, and one (which I believe she has yet to publish) on Elizabeth (Scheu) Close that would be interesting to anyone who might like International-Organic Architecture. Close was raised in the Scheu House by Adolph Loos, and seems to have been strongly affected by that experience ... but with a twist.
