House 352 by Built4ever
House 352
Starting construction as we speak! Should be finished by Spring. I designed this as a speculative design for my builder, we advertised it, and it sold in September. I finished the plans quickly and we sent it out for further planning, site planning, city approval, and customer review, passed with flying colors! Exterior colors should include dark brown brick, almond/cream stucco accents, and medium brown trim paint. Should be very dramatic. Drawn for a narrow alley access lot. Nice semi-open floor planning for comfortable,informal living at its best! Congrats to the lucky home owners, you will love this home!

Western fashion-pin-up, drawn in various pencils, scanned, toned and lightly tweaked with software. 
Shin-Ronin, City of Dragons by Built4ever
Shin-Ronin, City of Dragons
Concept art piece based on dragon theme with Asian-influenced architecture. Small city is perched on a high cliff/mesa reminiscent of rock formations found in the American Southwest. Access to city by flight only. Those are dragon-launching platforms! 

This is a location for the "Flurry the Bear" series of stories.
House 305 A Mountain Cottage by Built4ever
House 305 A Mountain Cottage
A new plan, developed from previous sketches, features an angled plan which works well on unusual building sites with slopes, ridges and hills. Master suite on first floor located to rear near garage/parking, two bedrooms up. Front of house features unusual kitchen/dining arrangement with accent on forward-facing views, possibly towards a lake, mountain, or beautiful downward slope. Home maintains a cozy cottage feel from the front due to diminished rooflines, small frontal area, and "knock-out" front corner entry porch. Plan can be easily modified. Garage to be designed as needed. 

This plan concept is for sale. Full construction plans can be provided, modified as needed. Please contact me if you have interest in adopting this plan for your dream home. E-mail for more info and pricing.

Technique: Floor plans and elevations drafted and hand-drawn in scale 1/8" = one foot, using Faber-Castell pencils graded 6H to HB. Front elevation lightly shaded to create depth. Drawings scanned, cleaned, and labeled with simple software.

Final construction plans printed on 24"x36" sheets in scale 1/4"=one foot, contact me for info plan contents and options. 
House 323 Construction Progress Early Nov. by Built4ever
House 323 Construction Progress Early Nov.
Continuing progress on this bungalow/cottage style house. Thanks to my builder for doing a fabulous job following the drawings and to my ever patient and open-minded client for choosing this fine home as a personal residence for himself and his wife. We will be doing a stone veneer on the chimney and right side of house soon. Enjoy!

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!

Wonderful pinups!

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!

Francois, your work is incredible. I happened on your gallery via a colleagues favorites and well, wow does not quite do it!
Built4ever Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2014
Thanks, sir. I like yer space stuff too. I used to fill my notebooks with X-wings in grade school. No better way to learn how to draw perspective/3D views of complex geometric objects.

Thank you, most kind. I worked for a while in the pre-production and conceptual departments of a number of companies designing such stuff for the movie industry until 'retro' (70's/80's style hardware) went out and this new super-streamlined stuff came in. Now I do it for my own amusement but it does have a small but dedicated following.

If I knew there was such a job when I was 16 I would have gone after it...
