consider every architectural theme and style worthy of consideration and
emulation in the design of 'affordable houses with character'. Our work
therefore makes several distinctions between the 'Not So BigHouse' (see
critique here). Please understand that the costs for creating new
smaller homes with distinctive interior and exterior features will incur
higher costs for design and construction (per square foot) than a
merchant built spec. house or a larger custom home. Reproducing any
historical style in true period detail , as compared to the clean,
contemporary ('stripped down') regional derivatives, clearly requires much
more effort from the entire building team.

"....anyone who cares enough can create a house of great
worth -- no anointment is required. If you care enough you just do
it. You bind the goods and trappings of your life together with
your dreams to make a place that is uniquely your own. In doing so you
build a semblance of the world you know adding it to the community that
surrounds you." -- Charles Moore, Architect
Country Home Series
These houses pack interesting spaces and
attractive elevations in smaller spaces. Starting at 1,200 SF,
and for building on lots with a maximum pad width of 28-40 ft, these
historically developed elevations were inspired by the bungalow and Americana
style homes of the 20's - 40's. (Click on the image
for a more detailed view)
These two elevations, top and
bottom, are from a new series to be published soon. They are
derived from the same plan @ approx. 3-4,000 SF
above is Moderne
style with only 800 SF. 'Cube House' has Living quarters on one side,
garage, utilities, and connected roof deck on the other. Single
bedroom up with bath and studio; kitchen, dining, living

Call for Plans
We are currently seeking work from architects and home designers who wish
to submit designs in period style that incorporate intelligently laid out
floor plans with a well integrated elevation package. We are looking
for starter homes, empty nester plans, and simply smaller designs that
incorporate combined spaces, have fewer bedrooms and other amenities but can
accommodate modern living. These plans can be traditionally
detailed or contemporary but either must reflect characteristic historical floor
planning. We are looking for the best there is in a range of
architectural styles that reflect historic (pre-1940) design principles or
Modern Movement projects, transitional styles, etc. Small houses from the 20's and 30's, craftsman style,
revival styles, etc. are very good prototypes. In addition to our own
plans in development we are soliciting projects to be featured here and that will earn full compensation for their reuse under special
contract provisions. Period style accuracy will be
preferred. Homes can start from 800 SF up to 4,000 SF. Please contact John Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more details.
