Five Storybook Cottages by Built4ever Five Storybook Cottages by Built4ever
This is a quick mash-up of five perspective sketches of my cottage home designs numbers 337, 333, 326, 344 and 345, imagined together on a shady street, to see how they would look together. I gray-toned them and scaled them properly to each other. The second one, 333, is a reverse of the original. Then I blend them together, mostly to get the sky and foliage to mesh a little. Primitive, quick, has a few issues, but works pretty well to visualize how these three particular designs would look if they were built together in a neighborhood. House 333 in the middle has eccentricities to the perspective, it needs a little help. (Note: file changed, new version has five cottages now including the new perspective sketches for House 344 and 345 to the far right...House 345 is a brand new design by the way, see new perspective sketch of it just posted recently...)

Well, actually, not to be too picky, but those are ceramic barrel tiles!! Flat slate could be on the second one!
