I've been a fan of yours for quite a while now and am finally at a point where we can build. I'm wondering what you'd charge to help design a small cottage for us? I'm sure you're probably out of our tiny budget, BUT I think there's definitely a market for tiny adorable cottages and I thought I'd check and see as I am madly in love with your designs!

Well my prices are quite low versus full-blown architecture service, but I still design the whole house, all construction plans, etc. BUT, these houses cost quite a bit per square foot. Depending on where you are, final size, basement, porches, "real" fireplaces, and how crazy we go on the interior, the sky's the limit. If you want to talk shop about possibly looking at getting a design done, or modifying an existing design, we could switch to my main email: beauregard.francois@yahoo.com and discuss what you are looking for and what I might charge to design it.

That plan/sketch has had bites, will sell eventually. Very small cottage though.

This is really lovely.  I really like the courtyard - so much privacy.  Also like that the garage is on the alley - that's what we have actually.  Alleys are not common in our area - suburbs of Colorado are all less than 60 years old so there isn't much creativity in the houses or lots.   In fact, that's my complain about almost all buildings and homes that are built in our area - no style, no creativity - just straight walls and flat roofs (which makes no sense in an area that gets as much snow as we do!)

Ok, sorry about that little rant.  I'm better now.  Guess that's why I enjoy your designs so much.  Your houses are actually beautiful, something that someone would be proud to live in, something that would be a joy to the eye just to come home to every day.

I got a call from a guy in Colorado yesterday regarding a storybook home! Howzabout that?

That's very exciting! Colorado needs some storybook homes! If he decides to build, I'd love to see it - at least photos.  Good luck!

Hmm... I should do a google search on storybook homes in Colorado.  I wonder if there are any...

You're right - not a one.  Though I did find a pretty little Victorian in Boulder that was considered somewhat storybook style because of it's lovely roof.

Lets do it. Find a plot of land. Learn timber framing and carpentry. I have to show the rest of the plan of course...

When first started looking I was wondering if you do floor plans too, and here it is.
Looks like you like doing it old school, but I don't think you have all the right drafting equipment. But it looks fairly good nonetheless.

No DIMS on the floor plan though. But that's okay, hardly any drafter puts DIMS on plans anymore, thank goodness for the scale :D But I think this is just something you did for fun.

Anyway it looks nice and charming. The way it is set up, the house is much larger than it looks when you first walk up to it, I kinda like that. makes a good wow effect when you walk into the home.

Yes, cottage effect up front, but luxury home plan. I do real plans, so they go from here to bigger scale with dimensions, usually drafted, then to cad guy to make a construction plan. I provide him with all dimensions. Sometimes I put room sizes when plans are at this stage. Since you are interested in floor plans or do them, I drew this in tiny scale 1/16" = one foot. Nobody else does stuff like that. Easiest way to get it right quickly. Believe me, I have 2 drafting boards.

Well I have designed homes that are kinda like a cottage, but not really. and some more modern like homes. I have designed one that is round & domed. Therotcaly it is tornado proof. But can't say it would withstand a truck being thrown at it LOL

1/16" = 1'-0" ? that is a small scale. Just about all the drawings That I work off of, the smallest scale is 1/8" = 1'-0" And they are large apartment buildings. But these are C sheets I am working on. LOL

I found out that controlling proportions, getting the big picture quickly,and even doing floor plans is best in very small scale. I just do detail drawings of exterior components. Everything gets blown up to bigger scale later...large drawings are difficult to handle and store. I went to a system of putting everything in binders, so, it must FIT IN THE BINDER!!

One of your best yet. I love the separation of the master suite from the rest of the house.

Almost forced if you want to keep the front part "small" and cottage-like. I still get stuck with that terrible two car garage footprint. Pool is optional he he...

At least the garage is tucked in the back out of sight. I like the breezeway and the pool. Almost forms a atrium for the owners.

Interesting Choice on leaving grass from front to back on the lot on the east and west edges, fire code I suspect? I usually see stuff pushed to one side or the other to make a semblance of a larger rear space.
Reply
:iconbuilt4ever:
Built4ever Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
No, not fire code stuff, actually, pretty normal development option around here. Where are you at? I would assume a 5 foot setback requirement on side lots, that's it. In this case, with alley access garages for most of these homes I design, rear yard is almost non-existent. This one has an interior courtyard instead.
Reply
:iconkrynn:
Krynn Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
Yea, Western Canada has a 1m setback requirement. Just not used to access on both sides of the home is all. Some do, but most don't. It's actually nice because the side of the lot that doesn't have access here is usually neglected or storage space.
