The Decision to bring the illustrated house histories into the Modelhouses brand was taken to avoid confusion as many clients have recently ordered both a drawing and a model of their home. It seemed a good idea to bring every aspect of my work ‘under one roof’ (sorry about the pun).
There are now several alternative services I offer from a written house history on its own, through to the ultimate house portrait, a fully researched history combined with an architectural model. Have a look at my ‘Prices and Options’ page to compare all of these types of project.
Here is an example of when the house history and model are combined in one frame. It’s a unique fusion which captures not only the appearance of the house, but also unlocks its hidden past and reveals the lives of the previous owners.
Any Building Anywhere
Please feel free to get in touch to make an appointment. Remember that it is possible to create models of any type of building, from town house to shop or country house. Without a site visit this makes the ultimate in surprise gifts! This service is not limited to the UK and commissions are welcome from anywhere in the world! Please email me a single photo of your house and I will provide you with an estimate, or give me a call for more information. The usual cost of a house portrait model in a box frame is around £2,250+vat. (more details about ‘small projects’ here).
