Marshall Erdman Prefab Residences

Ultimately, Wright produced variants, including a fourth bedroom and alternatives for a total or partial basement. The variations ranged in dimension from 1,860 to two,400 square feet (173 to 223 m2).

The exterior was to be painted Masonite with horizontal redwood battens attached, even though the house could also be built of stone or concrete block, or partially faced with stone.
