Houses for ArcE2803

What about other houses?

First, Google the provided house name with the architect's last name to see if there are any common variants.

Next, look in the Key Houses/Key Buildings books we've pulled and put behind the service desk. Check the indexes of each book for both the house name, architect's name, and common variants. If you're lucky, we'll have the CAD drawings on the disc for the book (if it turns up in the index, look at the drawings on the listed pages and also look on the last page of the book to see the number of the CAD drawing on the disc).

For info on the architect, and to find house info if all else fails, do a keyword search on the architect's name in MERLIN; if you don't get good results, also try Summon.
