Des Moines Home

This home is the result of my winning the Home of the Year design competition featured in Better Homes & Gardens magazine in 1994. It was built in Des Moines, Iowa as a spec home and sold the first week of the home tour. I'm a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright's work, much of which is in the Midwest. My interpretation of the horizontal lines popular with Wright's "Prairie Style" helped me win the competition. For a lighter touch inside, I skipped oak and designed all the woodwork to be maple instead (the kitchen cabinets were donated by Aristokraft, Inc.).
