Features: unique informal floor plan with novel dining nook surrounded by glass, compact master suite and bathroom, bunk room on second floor for young ones plus a regular bed room and bath, rooms with plenty of windows on many sides, fireplace, slate roof, steep front gable with graceful curve, stone foundation and integrated walls and buttresses, covered front entry porch, and garage with low pitch roof and attic story with storage. Pencil drawing on 16"x20" paper, drawn and designed by me.
Alright, here's the second try at a mountain top village/castle, a little bigger and more ambitious than the first one. Pencil sketch, scanned, color-tweaked, cleaned up and labeled on the computer. Maybe this one can be the International Academy of Traditional Architecture! Late for class? Take her to the dungeon! Note: File changed out on Oct 31, 2012.
Now available as a high quality print on heavy archival art paper, printed with archival ink, and signed by me. First proofs, or test prints, will be in size 16 inches by 12 inches. Email me for additional info and prices. Larger sizes also available later.

Exterior is roughcast or stucco over 2x6 framing or block, with some brick, and a dark slate roof with ridge tiles. Additional plans coming later.
Example of a craftsman bungalow, a very american style of home. Many built in 1910-1930, in all American cities. This is my design for an updated one, modern floorplan, cathedral ceiling in living area up front, master suite on second floor. Drawn by hand on tracing paper.
Full plan for house #302, a two story american bungalow with optional third floor bedroom or loft/study. Design by me, drawn entirely by hand. A common house type in the U.S. about a hundred years ago, this design is updated and includes a modern floor plan, cathedral ceiling in the living area, detached garage to the rear, driveway to right, large side yard on an 80 foot wide lot, classic bungalow exterior details including brackets, exposed rafters, novel shingle pattern on second floor, diamond pane windows, generous properly-scaled front porch, front dormer is open to living area and light shines down onto first floor, generous master suite, and more.
Portrait and plans for a rustic Mediterranean style home suitable for a sloping lot on a mountainside. Two-story design features primary living spaces on the first floor, master suite and two bedrooms on second floor, and garage/mud room to be designed as needed by client.

Portrait sketch, three interior watercolor renderings of the living room, floor plans, front and side elevations, and interior and exterior details, as always, all drawn by hand, scanned, and labeled with computer software.
Additional plans and continuing design work include extensive 3D modeling and optional computer drafting/Autocad construction plans.
Here's the update on plan for House #321, a classic American craftsman bungalow. New info showing up on these plans include: specific beam and truss specifications sized for live and dead loads (light engineering by me,) point loads indicated on the floor plans and cross sections (load imposed by a beam or truss which should be traceable to the foundation,) some limited plumbing information, HVAC location and limited info on air returns, which take up valuable space on the first floor, and very specific information on my interior panel system, which allows the wall paneling to be easily dis-assembled for service, updates, etc. Note: File updated Apr 27, 2012.
All drawings done by me with HB, H, and 2H pencils on tracing paper over graph paper entirely by hand. Elevations, cross sections, and floor plans drawn in scale 1/16"=one foot. Interior elevations drawn in scale 1/4"=one foot. Drawings are scanned, "color tweaked," cleaned up, put on backgrounds, and labeled with GIMP software. Perspective drawing of front done entirely by imagination, no computer models.
This plan will be updated with more info including roof plan, porch details, more interior elevations, the entire beam schedule, wall cross sections, a door and window schedule, plus more!!
This file is getting huge. I hope you all can read the fine print! If you have problems, just download it and view under magnification with your favorite viewer software.
Double portrait of house designs #327 and #331, drawn on two separate pages next to each other so that the garden wall, the landscaping, the sky, the trees, and anything else joins together seamlessly. The angle of perspective is also critical for it to look "right", with house #327 angled out just a bit more then house #331, which is almost a straight-on view. WIP of course, but illustrates how a scene like this can come together. First time I draw two houses together like this. Pencil drawing drawn from imagination, as usual...
