Visually very different from the Victorian houses all around it. Not yet the "Prarie Style", but you can see the beginnings of his mind working on it. The murals in the upstairs rooms have been repainted so you can now see them in an almost original state. He thought of so many ideas for his children's rooms and how things should be done. In order to fit in a piano - he put the back under part of the steps. His built ins in the walls are small for our clothing, but efficient for the time.
You move next door from the house to the office space. More gorgeous stained glass in ceiling and windows. For example, in order not to have his draftsman look out windows, he raised the windows. Efficiency for his ideas was paramount.
In Oak Park there are many other homes to see and there are tours that you can take. The big tour, which is the Wright Housewalk weekend in May, gets sold out quickly, so there is reason to go back there for another trip!
