Proposed Renovations to Three Small Houses by Built4ever Proposed Renovations to Three Small Houses by Built4ever
This is a small but interesting project for a client in Jasper, Texas, wishing to renovate some historic homes in the city center. The home at the top is being scouted for possible sale, and the other two are already owned by the members of the extended family. Client has a keen interest in this small historic town in the flat "piney woods" area of Eastern Texas, close to Louisiana. I had the go ahead to re-design them any way I chose.

Technique: each sketch is a pencil study measuring roughly 8 inches across by maybe 5 inches high. I use several photos as reference to draw an outline of the home. I don't follow the photos exactly. As usual, sketches are entirely hand-drawn. Photos were supplied by the client.

I'm fixing up a small, old, home right now (same date range) and these are so inspiring. We're almost finished on the inside but don't have the money to get to the outside, (it will be a few years, because I want to have enough money to do it right) but these give me hope! (It looks like a box right now. & I'm hoping the town's historical society has some pictures of it. I want to try to keep the original feel, even though there's been an add-on so I know I'll be taking some liberties anyway.) Your art is amazing. I'm more of a lurker than a commentor but I've pretty much gone through your whole gallery and your art is just so amazing! -Thanks for posting so much great stuff!

Wow! That's some pretty amazing transformations. You'll have to post pictures if they ever go through with the renovations.

Wow!  Wonderful designs.  Those renovations will turn three "plain vanilla" houses into homes with great character and appeal.  Totally cool!

I love the way you think! If I had no money constraints you could redesign my house!
