A Frank Lloyd Wright house in suburban Lisle has been disassembled and shipped to Pennsylvania, because the homeowner died in 2002, and a developer wanted the land that the house sat on, but not the house itself. The house has been given to a man in Johnstown, PA, who will spend more than $100,000 restoring and renovating the house. The building is one of Wright's least expensive designs and was intended for mass production, which made it easy to disassemble and transport.
