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.

Ok I'm in love with number 3 and how it feels like its tilting over to one side. Beautiful dynamic composition.

371? The jettied part on the second floor to the left would be set back a bit too, at least ten feet, maybe a lot more. Yes, balancing these kinds of asymmetrical front elevations is tricky. Good thing I'm equipped with erasers.

I'd say keep it unbalanced as it is. It makes it so much more interesting

Perfect i tell ya. I wish it was easier to convince investors to give you their money so you can work on the projects you want to work on.

Showed my dad some of your work and he also believes as i do that your style is perfect for the old town area of the place we want to develop.

Sell the investors with good drawings. Emotional appeals always win.

Nice, they kinda remind me of the row of houses in the historical district by my high school. :D

I live in Southern Oregon (don't want to give away TOO much)

Gotcha. Out of 47 states and most major cities, southern Oregon is one of the few places I haven't been to. How 'bout that?
