3D Modeling of the Project

With a 3D model we can pretty much show you whatever you ask to see. 3D modeling allows you to visualize what your home will look like once it is built. You can actually walk through it room by room. We can remove the roof so you can get a birds eye view of it with all the beams and cabinets in place. We can model the sun at any given time of the year so you can see the effects of the sun on the porches to make sure we have the orientation just right.

Architectural Page A-4.0 Sections

Sections bring together relationships that would be difficult to understand from floor plans alone. These Section pages show the home as if we had taken a cookie cutter and cut the home at various locations. Sections are used to describe the relationship between different levels of a building geometrically; a cross section is a horizontal orthographic projection of a building on to a vertical plane, with the vertical plane cutting through the building. Sections amongst other things, give you a sense of how much volume you will have in your home at any given place.

Mechanical Page P-1.0 Plumbing

Exclusive to our designs! Other Design Firms do not generally provide these details and pages. ** Frustration from personal experiences led us to develop these pages. We decided to include a plumbing layout that shows the plumbing fixtures superimposed on the concrete foundation plan. All dimensions are given to the center of the walls and to the center of the fixture. This page allows the plumbers to correctly install the drain and water lines so that YOU decide the actual layout of your home and not the plumbers by making a mistake.

The initial idea our client had was...

The idea our client came to us with is that they wished to have was a home that looked as though it had been there for a century or more. We wanted to make it look as though it had been added onto many times through the years.

This home features a large old barn that we used as a Great Room. It was relocated all the way from Pennsylvania to Texas. We used the large timbers to form the Great Room in the center. Everything else looks as though it was added onto it. It features many large wrap around porches. We took extra care in the orientation of this home on the property so that the owners could enjoy morning coffee and lazy afternoons on the large porches. It also has a beautiful infinity tub adjoining the Master Suite. Once the project was completed, it looked as though it had been there for a hundred years!

Just as the owners wished when we first met.
