David Watson Architects


Business Description
As a registered California architect with a Master's Degree in architecture, David combines his East coast education and work experience with his many years of practice in Los Angeles to create a truly unique architectural office.

David's passion for building houses sparked at a young age. He learned hands-on, valuable lessons working as a carpenter during his formative years in suburban Washington, D.C. These early "field" experiences continue to inform and inspire David today when working through design issues that require a pragmatic, rational solution.

Travel, tennis and experiencing the great outdoors are how David enjoys spending his free time. He resides in Manhattan Beach, California with his wife and 3 children.

Regarding copies of our work, all of our houses, including the Maryland Farmhouse, are custom designed specifically to our clients program and wishes. Because of this, and out of respect for our clients, we do not typically publish floor plans. That said, we would be happy to share the floor plans for the Maryland Farmhouse with you as a jumping-off point for a preliminary design of your own custom home. We’re sure, based upon your personal needs and program, the plans would need to be modified to suit your custom design.

5 evenly spaced intervals across the front, which based on the door size appear to be 8 to 10 feet wide. That would put it at 40 or 50 feet on the porch width.

I'm gathering ideas at this point in time. I'm sure you'd like payment for the plans so I'll have to decline your most generous offer of sharing the Maryland Farmhouse floor plans. I find your homes to be quite lovely. When finances allow, you will be my number one consideration. Thank you for taking the time to reply.
