House 317 Plan by Built4ever House 317 Plan by Built4ever
Original design for an American 1920's Tudor style house, suitable for a traditional neighborhood. Front porch includes elements from craftsman bungalows, garden shed to the right, garage in back, formal dining up front on left, very steep forward facing gable pitch makes for a dramatic front elevation and great curb appeal. Pencil sketch drawn by hand, mostly HB pencil, about 8''x11'', tinted on the computer to a terra cotta tone using software. Note: I updated the file on Mar 26, 2011 to add the front elevation and the first floor plan, along with a description of features.

Did you do this on the computer, or by hand? Awesome by the way - Kinda makes me want to do Architecture :D

It's all done by hand. The front elevation and floor plan were done in scale 1/16"=one foot on tracing paper over graph paper. I scan the drawings, tweak the color and contrast, and label with the computer.

Did you ever complete the second and third floor plans for this house? If so, I'd love to see them! This is one of the finest house plans I've seen in a long, long time!!

Nope, and I might change the first floor a bit. It was until recently the most favored drawing I had on Deviant, so others agree with you. I would like the master suite on the first floor. Plus, toying with cathedral ceiling in living area...What you think?

This is great! The rendering is beautiful. It makes it look very inviting. It almost reminds me of some houses I saw in England. Now all it needs is a thatched roof. ;) That's a really nice floor plan. You are the designer? Brilliant! I could move into here right after you build it for me. :icongrin--plz:

Yes, I designed it. I love thatched roof English cottages, but not a practical way to roof a house here in U.S. How 'bout slate or ceramic tile?

Slate okay, but I want you to build it for me in England. That's where I want to retire to in about 5 years. Think you can do it? :rofl:

Sure. It might cost a mint though. They generally build better there than we do here. Do you want an attached garage? Master suite up is okay? Music practice on third floor attic/loft with exposed timber trusses, oak floors, and dormers?

LOL! You have no idea how much I wish for this dream. And that's all it is - a dream. But...no garage, master suite on bottom level as I am disabled (only a shower needed). Small music room & art studio on same level. One or two bedrooms upstairs for guests. Kitchen opened up to living room with eating bar. No fancy dining room and an electric started gas fire place in the living room (and bedroom if possible). As little stairs as possible. Cheap wood (planks) floors are fine and I don't care about exposed trusses either way. Dormers if need be for the guest bedroom(s). Okay, is that enough information to get started? That was fun. It'll never happen but it definitely is my dream. Thanks for fulfilling my fantasies. :kiss:
