We perform all phases of the design plan - conceptual layouts and space planning, construction drawings, structural engineering, and construction administration, anywhere in the United States.
H.G. McCullough’s History
Self-taught at an early age, Harry G. McCullough began his home design career by accompanying his grandfather, a carpenter and a contractor, to job sites during summer vacations. He was eight years old. Harry reminisced, “I would draw house plans and ask my grandfather what he thought. That’s where I first got interested.”
After graduating from Reitz High School in Evansville, Indiana, he designed homes for a lumber company and then served in the Naval Constructions Battalions as a draftsman and a carpenter. Following that, he studied mechanical drawing at Evansville College (University of Evansville). In 1946, his construction education was gleaned from the late John Anderson and Henry Veatch, two of Evansville’s most respected home builders at that time.
It was around that time that McCullough’s “moonlighting job” of drawing home designs became a family business. His wife, Mary, supported the venture by documenting specifications and keeping the books. In 1979, the business was incorporated to H.G. McCullough Designers, Inc.
Decades of Home and Commercial Design Experience
Spanning seven decades, Harry created thousands of hand-drawn sketches and construction plans for unpretentious yet stunning homes. He favored rustic, lodge-style, country home designs with vaulted, spacious great rooms for gathering family and friends. Designed with gracious elegance, charm, and character, many of Harry’s custom homes were constructed with natural materials such as heavy timbers, stone, gable end braces, and cedar shakes.
I enjoy the challenge of planning a house, but I love designing the details to make it a home.
