Commissioned in 1956, the La Fond house was completed in 1960, a year after FLW's death. The home is an example of a prefabricated model that Wright completed with Marshal Erdman and Associates (ME&A).

The prefab homes were originally featured in a December 1956 issue of House and Home magazine. Prospective clients were asked to submit a plot map of the lot where the home was to be built, and FLW would come to the house after completion to install his red signature brick (if it met his approval). The La Fond home is an example of the Prefab #1 plan of the FLW/ME&A collaboration.
