The owners of a Wind Point home designed by an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright found themselves in a Racine County Courtroom on Friday trying to save it from being razed, according to a story by the Racine Journal Times.

Joan Schulz owns the home located at 4945 N. Main St. in Wind Point. She hasn’t lived in the home for years and it fell into disrepair. The home has historical significance since Edgar Tafel, an apprentice of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, designed the home in 1948.

But the rehab project has not gone quick enough for area residents. And even though Schulz has installed new windows, repaired the roof, and installed electricity to the house, her neighbors have voiced to concerns to the village that the dumpster on the properties remains after eight months.

The court has ordered a time table for the construction to be drawn up and turned in by April 21.
