Storybook House Video

We recently completed a video for a storybook house/cabin.  This is a fun little “old world” home we had previously drawn with the mountain architecture style we typically design, blended with a little storybook cottage, Swiss chalet, and hobbit house style.  This quaint, whimsical home could fit in just as easily in the cities of  Seattle or Portland as it would in the New Zealand countryside or the Cascade Mountains.

The video was done with a simple SketchUp program.

Let us know what you think!

Nicknamed "The Witch's House", this Hansel and Gretel cottage is the last thing you would expect to see in posh Beverly Hills. As an architect, my main critique would be that it needs more windows for natural…

    What do I think? I LOVE IT! This “Storybook House” is just gorgeous. If I ever move to the beautiful mountains of Asheville North Carolina, I’ll be buying this plan. Thanks for posting!
