Prairie Style house plans

Prairie Houseplans
Click on the Image to view this floor plan. Early in the 1920's a group of architects developed the Prairie style of architecture. The most popular among them was the well-known Frank Lloyd Wright. Prairie style homes are simplistic in their square design. Boxed shapes at varying heights and depths give the home a unique form. One of the characteristics that are most obvious with the Prairie style house plans are the shallow pitched hip roofs with large overhangs. The large overhangs protect the home's interior from direct sunlight; large casement windows however provide plenty of daylight for a comfortable interior.
