Plans for this home were published in Life Magazine in September of 1938, but the original clients could not get a loan from the bank as the house was too unconventional. About one year later Bernard Schwartz, a president of a manufacturing company in the city, commissioned FLW to build the home. Construction took a year to complete, however, not everything from the blueprint was built. Schwartz ran into a cash problem so parts were never built.
In phase 2 of the restoration project, the current owners plan to fill the home with reproductions of the original pieces and add the privacy fence and seating around the main patio which is accessible from the livingroom and master bedroom. Additionally, plate glass windows that were installed in previous years will be removed and custom French doors will be re-installed in the living room just it was originally designed.
