Perspective Sketch for House 345 by Built4ever Perspective Sketch for House 345 by Built4ever
Oh Boy!!! A new storybook cottage design! Pencil sketch on paper, mostly 3H, H, a little HB, 8 and a half by 11 inch paper, another version later to be shaded out more. I drew this with a very gentle perspective, view almost frontal, just a bit to the left, so it would blend in with the cottage street scene I am doing posted yesterday. Foliage to left blends with scene of cottage number 345, continuous gentle street slope up hill to the right, sun always to right. No floor plan yet for this design. Creamy white stucco with stone foundation and accents, multi-colored barrel tile roof, a mix of window muntin styles, heavy timber wooden brackets and posts in rot-proof cypress, fireplace to left, possible master suite there, possible breakfast nook up front to right, entry and stairs in center, great room towards back, garage in rear with the usual alley access. Enjoy!!

LOVE IT! Are you open to drawing a house from a picture for someone?

As a commission? Sure. I've done some house portraits. I can't do it for free though. I also prefer OLD houses.

Again to say this is great is not enough. What period is your head wrapped around. The detail is very period but more so I know you are highly into research that few in this age are.

This particular house has 1920's storybook influence originally, but also other elements, such as roof overhang/awnings that make it suitable for a sunny climate and protect the windows from rain and sun. Chimney is influenced by Queen Anne Victorian era homes. English cottages also figure prominently. Flower boxes, buttresses and stonework, unusual timber brackets, window muntin patterns, stone work over left double window unit, barrel tile roofs, tiny shutters, lanterns in unusual places with wrought whimsical wrought iron, and "cut-away" of corners to make porches and cozy spaces is basically all me, just makin' it up man he he.. This format, a large gable to left and small one to right, with dormers, I've used on several homes. I call it "Dad, Mom, and the Kids."

Good thing I had a 35mm in the age of research, otherwise I would have a collection of billions of digital photos of architectural subjects. Information overload.

How do you create houses like these?

Years of research, taking photos of old houses, acquiring good books, 1000's of hours of draw time, understanding good proportions and balance, especially in assymetrical compositions, real world construction experience, etc. The original idea for a house like this might start as a sketchbook sketch from years ago, mostly a "shape" of house, with some rough details, sometimes from imagination, sometimes sketched from a photo or book but heavily modified. By the time I'm done, it bears little resemblance to the original inspiration. Floor plans, landscape design, construction details are all me, rarely a reference of any kind, except to learn a new product or construction method. This stuff is ultra-complicated, believe me, it takes years to understand it all...
