Houses 382, 360, and 371 by Built4ever Houses 382, 360, and 371 by Built4ever
Three new house designs imagined together on a street, pencil studies each, drawn by hand in scale 1/16" = one foot, scaled out and ready for side elevations and floorplans. Good example of how I design BEFORE considering the floorplan. I have to make it work after the fact, so inevitably, I change windows, especially upstairs, make other minor changes, add wings to sides or rear, depending if it is on a narrow lot, etc. Sometimes structural issues such as beam placement necessitate a minor change. These three designs have large front porches.

Just curious ut how did you draw the trees on house #360?

Is it just simple specific outlines followed by light shading?

HMMMM yes just sketch in the leaves and trunk, and very lightly cross hatch maybe on top? Not too hard I think. Important to observe various types of trees and check trunk proportions, where and how they branch, how leaves droop, etc. I did tree studies as far back as 1997.
