This new four-bedroom house is based on an earlier design for the same client. He liked the first version so much, that when he built this second house, he asked LA to reduce the size and enhance it with Prairie style details. The horizontal window band on the exterior mirrors the long hip roof that has wide overhangs. The entry porch columns and gable roof add to the Prairie characteristics. The house is balanced by a garage on one end and a glass enclosed family room on the other. A custom designed stair and railing provide more architectural style. The kitchen, with large cooking island and cherry cabinets, overlooks the dining and living rooms, two steps down. A bookshelf flanked fireplace area provides a cozy reading niche.
