Keystone Orange County Flooring takes inspiration from the most beautiful architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright when he was coming up as a young draftsman did not get along with other draftsmen at his firm. He had several violent altercations occur during the first years of his apprenticeship. Sullivan showed very little respect for his employees according to Wright. In spite of this Sullivan decided to take Wright under his wing and gave him the greatest design responsibility. Out of respect, Wright would later refer to Sillivan as Lieber Meister which is German for Dear Master. Wright also bonded with the office foreman Paul Mueller. Wright soon after contacted Mueller to build several of his public and commercial buildings between 1903 and 1923. Wright married his first wife on June 1, 1889. Her name was Catherine Lee “Kitty” Tobin. They had met around a the time during the building of the All Souls Church. Sullivan did as much as he could to facilitate the financial succes of the young couple and granted Wright a five year employment contract. Wright made one more request to Sullivan that if he wanted him to work for him for the nest five years that he would need to lend him money to build a small house. Sullivan gave him a $5,000 loan and Wright purchased a lot on the corner of Chicago and Forest Avenues in the suburb of Oak Park. The existing house was given to mother and a compact shingle style house was built next to it for him and Catherine. According to an 1890 diagram of Sullivan's firm's new 17th floor space which was on top of the Auditorium Building, Wright soon earned a private office next to Sullivan's. This office however was shared with with and fellow draftsman George Elmslie. Sullivan hired him at Wright request. Wright was now the head draftsman and handled all residential design work at the firm. As a general rule Alder and Sullivan did not design, or build house but they did when they were asked by the clients of important commercial projects. During the day Wright was occupied by the firm's major projects during office hours, so the house designs became relegated to evening and weekend overtime hours at his home studio. Wright would later claim the responsibility for the design of the houses, but on careful inspection of their style and accounts from historian Robert Twombly, it was suggested that it was Sullivan dictated the overall form and motifs these homes. Wright's design influences were often reduced to detailing the projects from Sullivan's original sketches. Around this time Wright worked on the infamous 1891 James A. Charnley House in Chicago.
