S.158 William H. Copeland Residence alterations,

400 Forest Avenue, Oak Park, Illinois

 

William Copeland hired his neighbor (Wright) to perform renovations on his stable (S.159), and a year later on this 1875 home. Copeland rejected more drastic changes to the roofline and moves to reduce give the house a more horizontal look. Most renovations were done to the interior, so like many early renovations projects I am not sure the exterior reveals any Wrightisms.
