About New South Classics’ Blog
I want to welcome you to New South Classics’ Blog and the world of New South Classics Old World House Plans. Having been in the design profession as a registered architect for over thirty years, I have had the pleasure of working with clients around the world. Many of my published projects have been custom homes designed by me for my architectural firm, New South Design, LLC.
These homes have appeared in Pinnacle Living Magazine, South Carolina Homes & Gardens Magazine, Mountain Homes Southern Style Magazine and other National and Regional publications. They have generated a lot of interest and inquiries as to how one could find that sort of design quality in “off the shelf” plans. The truth is, the design comes down to the designer and most stock plans are not that well designed. Thus New South Classics was born as an alternate source for quality residential plans that have the look and feel of custom plans.
My love of design combined with my love of travel has come together in the form of New South Classics. While we strive to provide an assortment of popular styles from French country houses, English cottages, Tuscan villas, mountain lodgesand coastal retreats, one element is consistent regardless of style or period…. tasteful design with careful attention to authentic detailing, construct-ability and functionality. Here, we have brought together quality design and the economies of a web-based residential design service. While our custom plans are never for re-sale, they can and do inspire a line of homes that have proven to be popular and unique. I look forward to personally helping you explore the world of classic home design.
Our blog is intended to help our clients and anyone interested in building a new or second home in the “Old World” tradition. We will post material that we believe could be beneficial to owners, builders and anyone interested in housing and related subjects. Hopefully you will find that it has valuable information to help you learn more about the design and construction process from site analysis to conceptual design, construction documents and construction itself.
The housing market today presents fun and challenging issues and opportunities. We will try to help you navigate the design process with timely and relevant points of view, comments, suggested resources, and links to other helpful sites. We hope you find interesting and helpful!
