coop_hmstd_04 A project that was extinguished by World War II involved a group of enthusiastic homesteaders eager to build the earth-bermed rammed earth houses Wright designed for their shared property, on which they were each to pursue their agricultultural dreams. 

Each house was to cost approx. $1400 in 1942 dollars.  More here.
