House 339 Portrait and Plans

By Built4ever
841 Favourites
Storybook and Tudor-inspired narrow lot home. Complex porch framing, rich exterior detailing for a small cozy home. Nice serviceable open interior layout with numerous service/function areas for family life include nice-size pantry, mud room, large laundry rm., computer/home office desk, screen porch for mild weather eating and entertaining, and natural daylight throughout. This is an older concept sketch updated with a new front elevation, up-to-date plans, and framing cross section info. Plan can be modified and fully-custom-designed for anyone. Good example of packing a lot of house into an average-size floor plan. Front "curbside" portrait drawing has labels explaining exterior components and can be used by students, design professionals, teachers, and anyone else for reference.  

Technical: hand-drawn portrait, mostly light to medium very sharp Faber-Castell pencils, 6H to H on white paper, scanned, assembled, and labeled with basic computer software. 3D Model of interior by me also.

I absolutely adore what you've done here in combining the tudor gables with that wonderful chimney!

Thanks, yes, storybook cottage elements there, a little Tudor, a little mountain craftsman.

I love this one. Excuse my ignorance but what is a Pdr. room?
Built4ever's avatar
Powder room is a half-bath, or bath and sink combo, usually about 5'x7' dimension or so.

Fantastic. I love how the roof flows into all the elements and levels of the house, like into the chimney.

"Catslide roof", that's standard for storybook style. A little bit of headache for the framer to build!

Ahh that's the name. Yes, I love that and I have seen it used on some homes in the past. I would not doubt its a horror for the construction crew at times. My eldest brother is an architect himself and he has often uttered to me "An Architect is often a construction crew's worst nightmare." Heheh.

And a construction crew can be a nightmare for the architect! But good solid plans and plenty of open communication between both make things work smoothly.

If I ever somehow(unlikely alas) get enough money to get a house built for me, I know who I'd contact for design now :)

I am in love with this design! I can see myself living in a house like this. I hope I can find something similar to this when I start looking for a house. :)
Built4ever's avatar
I'm pretty sure you won't find one like that.

Aww. :( Your design is so wonderful, it's no wonder it's one-of-a-kind. :)

The design you've made shows that you are an excellent architect with vision and layout, especially with your ruler work - so straight. Well done. Thumbs Up
