Plans for Sale

With the exception of the Gearhart Cottage, all of the following plans are craftsman or craftsman bungalow houses of 3-stories, with the garage in the basement level making these houses ideally suited for smaller lots. Depending on jurisdiction’s codes, the height of these houses may be critical and in that case, the garage can be designed to be a separate, detached garage.

Basic fee: with (6) sets of 22x34 drawings $1,700.00
Beam calculations are provided

To provide site plan, modified elevations for the owner’s site is on an hourly basis. Modifications to architectural plans and structural drawings are also on an hourly basis.

Because of the complexity of these houses, lateral design was done and may have been drawn by the engineer. Therefore all lateral engineering and drawings are separate. The owner needs to either contract with the engineer that performed the original engineering calculation and drawings or hire another engineer

Craftsman/Bungalows

Craftsman style and bungalow houses, while retaining the detailing of houses built a hundred years ago, are designed with a fairly open floor plan, while minimizing hallways and eliminating small dark rooms. The living, dining and kitchen are opened up to each other, while providing a separate den or TV room off to the side. The laundry rooms have been located upstairs, with a bonus space at top of the stairs co-joining the bedrooms. Double and triple posted and tapered columns, a combination of different siding materials such as lap, shake, board and batten and decorative barge board tails are all hallmarks of the craftsman and bungalow houses.

Contemporary/Modern

In particular, O H Architecture believes that designing houses in Washington and Oregon means designing with large overhangs to keep the precipitation off of the sides of houses, large amount of windows to take in the views and the light, skylights, and use of cedar and other native materials to express the northwest vernacular style. The integration of the outdoors with the indoors, using not just windows but expansive openings becomes important to take advantage of the late summer evenings. Also the mid-century modern style houses can be ideally suited because of these attributes and the smaller economical footprint that they provide.
