>Does anyone have some floor plans, interior views and some comments about it. If not, can you recommend any other houses of Wright which I could look for (they should be considerably small houses...)>

Unfortunately I only know books regarding Wright's commissions published in the US, but I can make some suggestions. I also can't think off-hand of any book that covers solely the Winkler-Goetsch house or the Pauson House.

William Allin Storrer's The Architecture of FLLW is a book covering all of Wright's designs. Each design is accompanied by a black & white photo, a floor plan made by the author, and a short narrative explaining the building's history. So your houses will definitely be in there.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian Houses by Seargent is the best book that I know of that covers Wright's smaller (usually) "usonian" homes. It includes floor plans, photographs and explanations of some of the individual commissions.

There is a book about the restoration of the Seth Peterson cottage (a very small building), written by John Eifler and Kristin Visser. The Seth Peterson cottage really isn't considered that important of a design, however. A book by Herbert and Katherine Jacobs, who commissioned two small homes from Wright, is entitled Building with Frank Lloyd Wright. The book, as I recall, is the clients' story of the building of their second home. Both the Jacobs first and second homes are considered fairly important commissions (especially the first, begun in 1936 in Madison, Wisconsin USA).
