Sketch concept for a new design, House 170, mountain chalet or lodge, estimated budget maybe 2-3 million dollars, with some curved and eccentric angled roofs, deep overhangs, stone foundation, storybook cottage influence as well as German/North European late 19th century influences, and, of course, Frank Furness, American architect. Garage connection to right. Plan is drawn to scale at 1/16" = one foot. Entire drawing on a single piece of 8"x11" (A4) graytone paper, primarily drawn with 2H and HB Koh-I-Noor Pencils, keep 'em sharp! Good example of a design presentation on a single book page (for my upcoming book,) express as much as possible on one page with written description of rest of plan.

What a beautiful lodge ...
I love it!
By chance, you would not have other views or plans of this beautiful house ... I would like to redo it on an architecture software. I spend my free time creating houses of different styles, from the modern to the middle ages ... I study in the building, and your drawing and your plans really interest me.
I like your drawings for houses. They kind of make me travel, because each one is special. My mom works with an achitect who works with a computer and never draws a sketch, I think it's such a pity !
I absolutely love this house. The flow from the kitchen to the dining room to the great room is exactly what I want! Do you plan to draw a second floor? We need four bedrooms upstairs, but I don't know that this would be big enough for that. Your work is amazing! Thank you for sharing it with us!
This sketch was an experiment to try out more outrageous roof shapes! It would be challenging to build. Not sure if I would want to develop this one any further, but a simpler version of it could easily be done. I saw from your profile that you might be looking for custom plans. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and describe what you are looking for, rough budget, description and size of the land.
