Start Here...

  1. Simply sketch a floor plan. Pencil and paper works great.
  2. Sketch the exterior elevations of your design.
  3. Make a list of features (for example: siding style, color, roof type, window design, et al.). Straight to the point, bulleted lists work best.
  4. Send your work to support@thesmallhousecatalog.com
