Meet the Designer - Lester Walker

“Creating a home is a multi-faceted experience that borrows from the past, studies the present, and imagines the future. If owner, architect, and builder remain open minded and resilient during the design and construction process, the result will be personal, comfortable, and exciting.”

Les Walker has been practicing architecture as an art form for nearly 30 years in the Hudson Valley. Prior to that, he was a founding member of Studio Works in Manhattan, which won several national and New York City awards for innovative design. Since moving to Woodstock, his work has been primarily influenced by the simple vernacular architecture of the region. Les has an abiding interest in the graphic arts and loves to draw. He is the author of eight books related to architecture; every book includes numerous explanatory drawings integral to the subject matter. The two most popular of these, Tiny Tiny Houses: Or How To Get Away From It All -- and American Shelter: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Amercian Home -- have sold over 100,000 copies. He employs his draings to communicate design ideas, both in his books and his architectural practice.


He received a Masters Degree in Architecture from Yale University and a Bachelors Degree in Architecture from the Pennsylvania State University. Les has been published in magazines and newspapers worldwide and lectured at several American colleges and universities. He was an adjunct Professor of Architecture at the City College of New York for 20 years and has served on the Board of Directors of the Woodstock (NY) Byrdcliffe Guild for over 25 years where his primary interest is the preservation of the historic Byrdcliffe Arts Colony buildings.

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.
