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. 

Concept was sold in November 2014 and is now officially under development as House 317A, slightly modified from the original. All floor plans have been sketched out, including first, second, basement, and attic, and budget considerations look good. Two-car garage is tucked underneath house in right rear corner, access from back, perfect for the building site we have in Northern Arkansas. Moving at a relaxed pace, we may start construction some time in later 2015.

I can't believe that this is actually going to be MY house someday soon!!!  I am so excited!  We will definitely take TONS of photos, and I'll be glad to share with everyone!

It's nice to hear that this plan is becoming a reality. :) Will we be able to get any photos of the construction?

Sure. I might even be out there once or twice to visit. But the clients will take plenty of pics I'm sure...

Your original drawing is beautiful and the revised plan is equally lovely, but feels to me more mid-west gothic.

This house is fantastic.  I love that the master would be on the second floor.  I would put my two smaller children on the second floor with me, then use the third floor as a bedroom for my teenager.  I need a formal living room and a family room, so I would use the dining room as my formal living room, squeeze a dining table between the kitchen and the great room, then use the study as a guest room.  The only thing missing for me is a full bath downstairs for guests!  I love your work.  I've not found another architect who makes house plans that I like.  You're one in a million!

Well, I'm glad you like third floors! Most people want everything on the first floor! The study used a guest room would work better if the powder room was next to it, and re-done as a full bath of course. Not a big problem to put a closet in there. If formal dining room was used for a living room, where do we eat big important meals with many people? I would need to enlarge the breakfast nook in back. This is a pretty old plan sketch by now, I have loads more experience, my plans are more sophisticated than this now, but the exterior doesn't need any help, very dramatic. Why don't you hire me and we can use this front view as a starting point and re-design the floor plan?

I am actually discussing hiring you with my husband right now!  As for big important meals, we don't have many of those!  Haha!  Mostly just a bunch of kids!

We're about an hour from Little Rock, two hours from Memphis.  My hubby is working on a list of "needs and wants" for our house design.  I will have him email it to you when he finishes it.  I also went to our property today and took some pictures to give you an idea of what we're trying to build on.  I'll have him send those with our list, and you can tell us what you can do!

Okay, very good. So if you have pics of the site, that's great. Also, by any chance, do you have a site drawing of some sort? topographical info? Any restrictions/setback requirements/association requirements?

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?

Joilieder Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2011
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:

It has outlines, but not really harsh; they're a little Mucha-ish. >3<

I took pictures of many styles, including many Tudor style houses, in maybe 30-40 states in U.S. They were always in the best condition, best neighborhoods, great designs, mostly built in the 1920's. Demand for new houses that look like those is reasonably good, so it's a good prospect to actually get a client interested in one and get it built. I always try to blend any design in with surrounding plants, lay of land etc, especially by using short walls, buttresses, and other DOOHICKEYS that I invent. House MUST harmonize with land. I'm actually working on the front elevation and plan for that house so keep lookin' because more is comin'...thanks for kind words!
