House 339 Portrait and Plans by Built4ever House 339 Portrait and Plans by Built4ever
Storybook and Tudor-inspired narrow lot home. Complex porch framing, rich exterior detailing for a small cozy home. Nice serviceable open interior layout with numerous service/function areas for family life include nice-size pantry, mud room, large laundry rm., computer/home office desk, screen porch for mild weather eating and entertaining, and natural daylight throughout. This is an older concept sketch updated with a new front elevation, up-to-date plans, and framing cross section info. Plan can be modified and fully-custom-designed for anyone. Good example of packing a lot of house into an average-size floor plan. Front "curbside" portrait drawing has labels explaining exterior components and can be used by students, design professionals, teachers, and anyone else for reference.  

Technical: hand-drawn portrait, mostly light to medium very sharp Faber-Castell pencils, 6H to H on white paper, scanned, assembled, and labeled with basic computer software. 3D Model of interior by me also.

I love this one. Excuse my ignorance but what is a Pdr. room?

Powder room is a half-bath, or bath and sink combo, usually about 5'x7' dimension or so.

Fantastic. I love how the roof flows into all the elements and levels of the house, like into the chimney.

"Catslide roof", that's standard for storybook style. A little bit of headache for the framer to build!

Ahh that's the name. Yes, I love that and I have seen it used on some homes in the past. I would not doubt its a horror for the construction crew at times. My eldest brother is an architect himself and he has often uttered to me "An Architect is often a construction crew's worst nightmare." Heheh.

And a construction crew can be a nightmare for the architect! But good solid plans and plenty of open communication between both make things work smoothly.

Yeah I draw it, and imagine building it. The corner joints (post to beam) are always challenging, usually best to stagger the beam out and up a bit into a notch. This one would look great from the inside too.

Very good. Now as a wood builder fanatic guy, I would recognize my own minor boo-boo: the small protuberance at the top of each brace/bracket would be too weak going cross-grain like that. Your model makes it even clearer because it shows the wood grain. In reality, if I built it, I would modify it a bit, fatten it up maybe. It could split even under construction, when I'm cutting the brace! (this has nothing to do with your model of course.)

Would it really? Even with that thick a piece? That's too bad as I think it really adds to the look. I'll have to dig out the detail of the brackets we used at the builder I worked for years ago.

Little cross grain tabs like that tend to break easily in the shop. Trust me, I broke a few. The rest of the bracket is fine.

I checked it out and that's really cool.  As I told him, I have a hard time understanding this stuff on paper, but once I have a piece of wood in my hands, I "get it".  You have an amazing talent to be able to understand it in both mediums.

Actually building stuff helps that out a lot. I see a lot of 3D models (and other models) with flat 2D roof surfaces. Just need to understand rafter thickness, overhangs, eave detailing and then it all comes together more realistically. The roof is the icing on the architectural cake. That's why I hate modernist style/doctrine, they took the roof off!

A very comfortable looking house. I like the local stone construction mixed with the tudor-esque top. I have a problem imagining the complex curve roof section, Given your background I shouldn't question but I can't help but ask "Is that really possible?" The timbers can be carved to shape, yes, but the plywood base for the roof and shingles on top... ???

I don't think you ever indicate any feature without a personal touch of yours. That is what makes your style so completely yours.

:iconbuilt4ever:
Built4ever Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2015
Yes! I could draw the detail. It's a couple of curved rafters (front to rear) and then an angled/pitched small panel (facing the viewer) makes a small valley. Lots of classic storybooks and tudors have small oddities like this. Let's build a 3D model of that section only! One trick with tight radius curves is to use two sheets of thinner plywood, like 1/4" ply, on top of each other. Re-doing your profile pic?

Mann-of-LaMancha Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm... trying to imagine it just based on your words alone. Not working, but it's late.

Are the rafters crisscrossed more densely in that section? Would steaming the plywood be necessary? I tried to bend 1/4 grade ply for my dad's boat's engine cover in about a 9" radius. It wasn't pretty.  If you sketch up something rough and quick, I could model something based on it easily, I think.

Another way to do it is a master valley rafter so that the niche is "hollowed out" inside. Several ways to do it. You can curve the back panel too. Might try to imagine the opening in the niche headered off at the perfect height, then build the funky short rafters to the header. These are all small pieces, and depth is minimal at 16" standard layout spacing for rafters and studs.

52 minutes after you posted your reply, I read it, and I think I got it. Something like this? mann-of-lamancha.deviantart.co…

I was thinking it over last night and thought it must be similar to how they make a, excuse the improper nomenclature, conical roof cap, except inverted, but the description of "master valley rafter" helped much better. The roofing tiles would overlap at the 45, yes?

Cheers.

Well, you could do a valley in copper for example, if you used premium roof materials. So then THAT GUY gets to build a difficult piece too. I Imagine forming a piece of sheet metal into a squarish valley, THEN imagine curving it! Most likely snipping it at regular intervals and overlapping a tiny bit at the snip, so you can mash ii into the curve. When modeling these houses, I always try to imagine or actually execute the  underlying structure to get the framing and roof right.

Kerfing I believe they call that.
I was thinking about a copper trough in the valley and wondering how/why they might do that. Just a touch different than a standard 45 I imagine. Sometimes I over-think things.

That's the only way I work too. Anything otherwise seems like a waste of time and effort.

It's okay to design complicated stuff as long as you can do the design/detail drawings to show how it's built.
