New Designs

I know that I have not added any new stock plan designs to the web site in quite a while. Not because I have not wanted to, I just have been busy with some custom projects and all the other stuff that gets in the way of designing buildings.

I currently have 5 new designs in various stages of completion. A couple of these are based on previous custom designs, but modifying these seems to take as much time as starting from scratch. Why do I have 5 designs going at the same time? Not sure, I just have not been happy with how each was evolving, so I started working on another. I like to let a design linger while I take my time to think about how to improve it.

So, I am searching for that balance of interesting design, livability, practicality, build-ability and affordability. You may be able to achieve all these goals in a small home, but as you increase the size, affordability typically suffers. I am also working to improve the design quality.

Below are a couple images from the JC-91 design. It is interesting because of the butterfly roof and clerestory windows. I hope to have it finished in a few weeks.
