Abstract
One of the most eccentric architectural planbooks of all time was Orson S. Fowler's "A Home For All." In it, Fowler laid out his plan for octagonal houses, which were cheap and easy to build. James A. Newton examines the work of two men who built houses according to these plans, E.A. Brackett and H.P. Wakefield.
