    Ok I was a tad bored at work this afternoon, and thought this might be a good idea for a thread..

    Using any technique or tools you want, pencils, 3D imaging.. crayons. Design your dream house....

    My effort so far....

    More detail in 2nd Pic..

    Total area 24m x 22m 528sqm

    Each room off the main living area is 6 x 4 24sqm

    All bedrooms will have AirPlay systems fitted and will have iPad 2's in docking stations by the bed.

    Main room will have wall mounted 60" screen connected to media server in Tech room.

    Each bedroom has an ensuite with sauna.

    Because of the shape of the rooms extra rooms can be added where the east balcony is or to replace the conservatory.

    Ensuites can be changed to 2 functioning main bathrooms.

    6 main cupboards in each bedroom each cupboard 0.5 x 0.5 x 2m

    Each room is faced on the outside with glass panels of 2 x 1.5m. All glass panels are double thickness glass to allow for the winters.

    All windows will be fitted inside with retractable sash blinds.

    All glass panels are able to slide opening up the house in summer.

    The main living area is 21 x 9 = 189sqm.

    As you can see in the South Elevation the roof is higher by 1m on the Eastern side, sloping to the west, the roof would be of zinc, lined with ceiling insulation.

    Full wrap around balcony area in weather resistant wood.

    All outside faces of the house not glass to done in shale slats, or Treated burnt maple slats.

    That's a nice rendering! If I could draw one with pencil I would def do one, BUT I saw you said "Crayons", might have to break out the 64 pack now.

    why draw when google already has it :rolleyes:

    in all seriousness. All i want is a modern 3/4 bed/baths. And a large backyard with an awesome pool w/ slide diving board waterfall and putting green and a fire pit would be cool too :cool:

    I am in love with the craftsman style. This is the famous Gamble House in California.
