A New Fashioned House- Part II

Newfashionedhouse

Here is the finished first floor sketch for my take off on a plan from Craftsman Homes: More than 40 Plans for Building Classic Arts & Crafts-Style Cottages, Cabins, and Bungalows by Gustav Stickley, as I promised! It is on the large side for a regular house but much much smaller than some of the houses I see in plan books. I designed it to be a house for someone with a large budget who wants to build a “smaller” house with beautiful details perfectly proportioned. One thing that is flexible is the basement door. It can either be placed across from the pantry or, if the site allows, it could be a walk in basement.

As a special surprise, I did an elevation last night at 3:00am!

Many of the plans I have seen in books like to add a fancy window above the front door but here I like the elegance of a simpler second story. I also really love all the closets, it even has two closets outside the front door for skis and other outdoor equipment (such as snow shovels).

I forgot and made the interiors walls way too large, they should be more like 6 inches.
