House333A Portrait and Plan by Built4ever House333A Portrait and Plan by Built4ever
Original design for a home by me. Classic English design elements. Floor plan is hand-drawn in pencil, rendering is a Sketchup model with some additional background toning via Gimp. I prefer the model to match my drawings a bit, NOT look too photographic.

File updated 1/7/2016  This is the latest version of an old concept I did more than 5 yrs ago. As shown, it is a candidate for purchase and construction in the American midwest, and is actively being marketed, so we might see this built soon!

I have chosen this beautiful design as the inspiration for my next project in TS4. I found a couple of sketches and the 3D version of 333A in your gallery. If you have more images available I would love to see them too.

I have many versions of this, quite well-developed, and a candidate to actually get built by one of my builders. What's your email so I can send some stuff?

Thank you for sending the additional images, they really helped! Here is my attempt at creating this home in The Sims 4. Aside from small adjustments that were necessary to make it work in the game, I also moved the garage to the side because the game lot I was building on was not long enough to keep it behind the home without taking up all the yard space, this allowed me to add a back porch that connects the garage and mudroom too. As for upstairs, there weren't any floor plans that I could find so I improvised and created 4 additional bedrooms,  2 bathrooms and a small kids lounge area. I hope you like it :)

House 333 is under development for a builder, but the plan will be different and the house just slightly narrower.

There are some homes here in Jackson, Mississippi similar to this style, built in the teens and early 20's. :)

Yes, Tudor style homes are in every American city. But for a deep south location with hot humid weather, they really need sun shading over windows, large porches, and deep roof overhangs to be adapted to climate, which I often put on my designs. True English design is not quite right for most American locations.

We have some excellent examples of Tudor revival in the Fondren, Woodland Hills, and Belhaven neighborhoods of Jackson, the capital of Mississippi. Most of them were built in the 20's and late teens. I think they probably have higher ceilings and incorporate floor plans with better air-flow and probably have transoms over the interior doors to cope with the Mississippi climate.
Of course, they also have lots of shade trees around them. Jackson is referred to by some as "the city in the woods." :)

Been there a few times briefly. We were just in New Orleans a few weeks ago. Are you building some boats recently?

Are you referring to my toy ships by "PLAYMOBIL"? I assemble those. I can't really say that I "build" them.
But I do have some ships that I built from plastic model kits. :)

I built a coupla those in my childhood. One of my first books was "The Sinking of the Bismarck" in second grade.

I'm still trying to build the plastic model kits.....or atleast finish the ones I start. I saw the kit for the 1628 ship, Wasa, online a while back, and was salivating. But I have to make myself finish the ones I've started first. I just bought a house, and I'm trying to get it ready to move in and set up my drawing/crafts table so I can.

I agree the center hall seems unnecessary given the entrance to the mudroom. The other issue I have with the center hall is when you enter from the garage, the first door you come to is the Master Suite? Seems like the Master Suite should be upstairs, over the garage, with a private balcony? I'm a big fan of the 'public rooms' being easily accessible and the private suites being more hidden away. Just a personal issue. Past that, I love it! The outside front view is gorgeous. Lot's of cool angles. Interesting to look at, without wasting a lot of space on the inside. Well done!

You've inspired me though. Maybe I'll break out a ruler and some graph paper (Cause I'm that much of an amateur) and start redesigning my dream house.

Question - How did you post it online with so much detail? Scanner? I've always photographed my paintings and stuff, and I can't seem to get the details to come through on projects like this?

In the U.S. right now, it is highly desirable to put the master suite DOWNSTAIRS, not up. Americans don't want to climb stairs any more! I NEVER put the master over the garage because the noise and vibration from the electric garage doors would upset the peace and quiet there. I personally DO like the master suite on the second floor. Problems with master down include increasing the foot print of the house on the land by 500 to 700 square feet. I draw on small eight and a half by 11 inch sheets for everything, and scan everything onto a small scanner. Use tracing paper over graph paper. For example, all my elevations and floor plans are at scale 1/16" = one foot, very small indeed. But now, ALL my drawings fit in binders, neatly organized.

Very cool. Thank you for the tips on using small paper. I have all mine drawn on graph paper. 1/4" = 1 ft. and my drawings end up using two or three sheets and then I have to fight with taping them together/storage, etc.

So you draw on graph paper, then trace it onto tracing paper?

My thoughts on putting the Master Suite upstairs was just a personal preference (I wasn't thinking about designing for someone else). I didn't even think about the noise issue of putting the Master Suite above the garage. However, if the Master Suite is occupied, things should be pretty quiet in the garage, since usually it's the occupants of the master suite who park their vehicle(s) in the garage? Again, just my amateur mind at work. Not trying to tell you how to do your job, or start an argument, so PLEASE don't take it that way. I admire your work and can't wait to see more!

I tape the tracing paper to the graph paper and draw on the tracing paper. Forget about 1/4 inch scale til you are ready for final documents! Way too big!!

Definitely have the bug to drag out my old floorplans and tweak them... Or maybe even start a new design project.

I know next to nothing about architecture so forgive my ignorance in this question. I had always heard that in a kitchen the best set-up is a triangle between the refrigerator, sink, and stove. In this design I see the refrigerator against the same wall as the sink (at least I think that is the refrigerator). I suppose what I'm asking is this: is what I've heard accurate or is it just one of many schools of thought regarding kitchen set-up? In my own kitchen the refrigerator and the stove are against the same wall with the kitchen being across from them and I hate it, wish I could get it redone.

I like the idea of knocking out the hallway and expanding the master bedroom. When I saw the double hallway, I thought it odd but understood the thought behind it.

I do like it though. The exterior lines are nice.

You also want the fridge next to the informal eating area. As long as the three are close to each other. For example, it would NOT be best to put the fridge across on the other side of the island.

Nah, I wasn't trying to suggest that. I was just wondering what is considered common in the world of design/architecture. Thanks.

But yes, you are right, that is a design principal...The triangle...

"design principal!" That's the term I was looking for! Thanks again. I really enjoy your work. Glad I found your stuff on DA. And thanks for posting what you do.
