Meet the Designer - Houser Walker Architecture

null -
“Our hope is that each person who lives in our homes is equally delighted with it fifteen years on as they are the day it is finished.”

Established in 2004, Houser Walker Architecture offers ecologically driven architecture, interiors, furniture design, and management services. HWA believes the quality of the built environment contributes directly to the quality of daily life. Their designs maximize the "free" qualities available to all: proper siting, daylight, cross ventilation; locally standard construction techniques and materials; and the different ways people inhabit their homes. HWA strives to create “ecologically intelligent,” affordable designs that are durable, energy efficient, and architecturally interesting. The firm was awarded AIA Atlanta’s EV08 prize, recognizing the quality of the studio’s body of work to date. In 2008, HWA was profiled in Architectural Record as an emerging regional practice.

Founding partner Gregory Walker focuses on residential and commercial projects, and furniture and product design. He spent his early career working on residences in the award winning town of Seaside, Florida. Gregory’s work has been recognized with honor awards from the Boston Society of Architects and the Atlanta Urban Design Commission and his work exhibited in Boston and Atlanta. In 2004, he was awarded the AIA Georgia Young Architect Award. He has taught at the University of Arkansas and as an Adjunct Design Studio Instructor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Gregory earned a Bachelors of Architecture from Auburn University and a Masters of Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.

Hank Houser has worked in the construction industry since 1990 as a carpenter, material provider, and architect. As a founding partner in Houser Walker Architecture, Hank leads museum and cultural projects. His design work has won several awards, including an AIA Atlanta Residential Design Award for his own home renovation. His work has been displayed at the 1996 AIA convention and at the 2004 and 2005 Greenprints Conference. Hank has spoken at numerous local and national conferences on subjects regarding daylighting, planning for construction, and sustainable building strategies. Hank received a Masters in Architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology and a Bachelors in Journalism from the University of Georgia.

Important Information

All sales on house plans and customization/modifications are final. No refunds or exchanges can be given once your order has started the fulfillment process.

All house plans from Houseplans are designed to conform to the local codes when and where the original house was constructed.

In addition to the house plans you order, you may also need a site plan that shows where the house is going to be located on the property. You might also need beams sized to accommodate roof loads specific to your region. Your home builder can usually help you with this. You may also need a septic design unless your lot is served by a sanitary sewer system. Many areas now have area-specific energy codes that also have to be followed. This normally involves filling out a simple form providing documentation that your house plans are in compliance.

To find out what documents you should expect with your house plans, see what's included?

In some regions, there is a second step you will need to take to insure your house plans are in compliance with local codes. Some areas of North America have very strict engineering requirements. Examples of this would be, but not limited to, earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Coast, hurricane risk areas of the Florida, Gulf & Carolina Coasts. New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and parts of Illinois require review by a local professional as well. If you are building in these areas, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your building department. If you aren’t sure, building departments typically have a handout they will give you listing all of the items they require to submit for and obtain a building permit.

Additionally, stock plans do not have a professional stamp attached. If your building department requires one, they will only accept a stamp from a professional licensed in the state where you plan to build. In this case, you will need to take your house plans to a local engineer or architect for review and stamping. In addition, plans which are used to construct homes in Nevada are required to be drawn by a licensed Nevada architect.
