#680 Ozarks Bungalow Design

We've done much research through the years to prepare for our Ozarks Bungalow renovation project.  For inspiration, we like to look at Frank Lloyd Wright's designs.  Yes, it's hard work but we're dedicated.

So far, we've stayed overnight in two Wright houses:
Schwartz house in Two Rivers, WI for our 10th wedding anniversary

Penfield House in Willoughby Hills, OH for our 20th
We've also stayed in two Wright-designed hotels:
Wright's Historic Park Inn in Mason City, IA

Wright's Price Tower in Bartlesville, OK
And we've visited about 40 other Wright buildings along the way including the Yodoko Guest House near Kobe, Japan.

We've learned much.  We especially like built-in light fixtures and built-in furniture, open floor plans, and common motifs that tie rooms together such as consistent lighting or continuous flooring.  A house doesn't have to be big if it's designed well.  

Yours in learning what we like from Mr Wright,
