Plan for House 317 was sold in November to a family in Arkansas, and is now under development as 317A, slightly modified. Here's the original sketch with the "current" elevations below it. House 322 recently updated too.

House 376 Tudor Farmhouse
One of several custom designs under development for private clients, as of late 2014, this one was heavily influenced by my own design House #333, re-drawn with specific requirements for the floor plan, and now entering full development as a construction plan for early next year. Typical of how I work, people often point to a favorite house or two in my gallery, and then I re-work the floor plan, and sometimes the elevations, to reflect their wants and needs, as much as I can, within a specific budget. If we can pass the budget hurdle, then we can find a builder and develop the plans more extensively.

This particular home will be situated on a mini-farm, a little under 20 acres, mostly pasture, with many farm animals in residence. Kitchen will be a large fully-functioning farm house kitchen with an oversize refrigerator and stove, and enormous storage in full-height cabinets for home-made preserves.  I designed in additional space in a partial walk-out basement with about 700 SF, and a heated and cooled attic with stairs up, about 500 SF, giving us as much as 1200 SF of extra expansion space beyond the roughly 2600 SF for first and second floors.

Our builder is a hand-chosen associate of mine based nearby. He is a detail-oriented hands-on master builder who will really execute this plan as-drawn. Since it's maybe a 4 hour drive from me, I'll be doing site visits and participating in the construction process all the way through.

Illustration technique: Watercolor on tan-toned paper, and drawings below in pencil on white paper.

House #31 A Classic Tudor
Original design for a classic "American" Tudor home influenced by American homes of the 1920's. This is actually a rear view showing a rear porch and some landscape elements. Exterior: slate roof, stucco and half-timbered panels, flat ceramic tiles in upper gable.

Technique: watercolor on tan paper with pencil and brown ink pen to pick out highlights and edges.

Francois "Fran" Beauregard
Beauregard Residential Design

I am a residential designer, an illustrator, and an architect of all kinds of traditional buildings, both "real" structures like luxury private homes and imaginary, for games and novels. I also build quite a lot of things, shelves, furniture, cabinets, architectural components, and interior renovations. I am completely self-taught. Unlike the majority of architectural designers now, I rely exclusively on pencil and paper to express a new building design. Virtually all my floor plans, elevations, cross sections, and three-dimensional "perspective" portraits of buildings are hand-drawn. I am also a huge proponent of "traditional" architecture. Those buildings which have stood the test of time are exceedingly beautiful, timelessly enduring, profoundly well-built and highly functional, and they are where my inspirations and construction techniques come from.

I DO accept commissions to design buildings of all forms and types, both fantasy and real, including fantastic houses, spectacular castles, detailed villages, and more, in any historic style of your choice, or, I can invent a new style! I have received a number of commissions from Deviant in the last few months, including real architectural work, website illustrations for a builder, novel illustrations, virtual building designs for games, and a book cover for a novel, and the commission requests continue.

Viewers of my drawings and designs may learn from them, be inspired by them, or use them as a basis for something more involved. I am not possessive and share freely. If you would like to make a 3D model or other artwork based on something in my gallery, feel free, I love seeing how other people interpret what I draw. Just be sure to send me a note during progress or when you are done, and credit me as the designer, that's all!

Also, if you are interested in watercolors, digital art, and drawings of traditional architecture, both existing historic structures and original designs of all kinds, be sure to check out my group, Classic-Architecture!

I really enjoy nicely done 3D models. Guilty pleasure from a pencil pusher.

Likewise. Guilty pleasure from a all too frequent eraser pusher.

Thanks, I do it for relief from hard-core architectural design. Gotta do some curved lines sometimes.

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Keep up the great work!
