If you were hoping that you could purchase a Frank Lloyd Wright home on the cheap, well, you're outta luck. The Emil Bach House up at 7415 N. Sheridan was auctioned off in just 8 minutes yesterday to the tune of $750,000, give or take a few thousand. The good news is that the new owner isn't a developer and actually plans to live in the house, which has been criticized for its small rooms.
