Wasau, Wisconsin

This Prairie Style timber frame house sits on the shore of an abandoned granite quarry. The Prairie School architects did not use timber framing. But Frank Lloyd Wright liked all things Japanese. This timber frame looks to Japan for inspiration. There are three “bent” timbers, one on each side of the great room, as well as one over the master bed. The main floor of the house is a radiant slate tile floor that, at certain times, is the same color as the lake.
