The Nichols house was designed as a vacation home for Frederick Nichols, the superintendent of the Bitter Root Valley Irrigation Company. Built in Flossmoor, Illinois, the residence is similar in plan to the “Fireproof House for $5,000” Wright published in the Ladies Home Journal, and “Tan-y-deri,” a house he designed for his sister, Jane Porter, both of which were built in 1907. The Nichols house is square in plan and features a long trellis that extends over the front entrance.
