PRINTABLE PROJECT NOTES

BEGINNING
Use basic shapes to make an interesting house. Draw lightly so you can erase later and experiment with the design. Some parts are in front of other parts like the porch or the tower. Show the house from the corner and have two sides. Don't worry about straight lines- in fact if the lines are a little crooked it makes the house look older and more spooky.

DEVELOPING DESIGN
Add the windows, and the door way. Use guidelines to keep the tops and bottoms of windows all in a line if one is higher or longer it looks sloppy.

Add line for the brick foundation and two lines that curve outward for the stairs

DETAILS
Add the roof shingles by drawing the letter "U" in rows. Add shutters by drawing long rectangles next to the windows, have some hanging crooked. Add a railing for the porch, Add the brick foundation with short thick sideways lines

FINISHING TOUCHES
Add a fence but have a few pieces falling down or missing. Draw flagstones in the sidewalk. Add bricks to the chimney the same as the foundation. Add a few dead trees on the side of the house. A few tombstones are always a good idea and a bat or black cat. and don't forget the moon.

Make the windows dark unless you are going to have a spooky green light coming from inside.
