Some Unusual Cottage Style Homes by Built4ever Some Unusual Cottage Style Homes by Built4ever
A compilation of various watercolor sketches from my sketchbook circa maybe 10 years ago, done around scale 1/16" = one foot, with watercolors, brown ink pen, and pencil. I had to scale a few up and a few down to get them to work together at the right scale. Though colored, they are only lightly shadowed as if it were a cloudy day. Some of these have become inspirations for real home designs in my sketch binders, with minor corrections to window arrangements and other details. Primary influence is English vernacular building traditions, but with a touch of whimsy, just bordering on storybook style.

I should show these to my Architect brother. He likes unique buildings and these definitely fit the bill. Their so pretty too.

Is #1 based more on Jacobite town houses? My tenuous guess is based on a lack of half-timbering.

I kinda made it up I think. The other two next to it are definitely influenced by some pics of small English townhouses with really bold half-timbering.

As a designer, I am inspired by traditional styles and can't thank you enough for sharing this. The drawings are pretty neat as well.

Well, being in the UK, you're surrounded by lots of good stuff. The best is all around you, built over the centuries. The old builders were the masters. Just keep learning about the old secrets.

These are wonderful!  Your houses are so inspiring.  I look at them and then try to imagine what setting they would be in - a forest, a manicured garden... etc.  They're brain candy.  lol
