How to Draw a House Step by Step
Man-made objects, such as vehicles and buildings, are created according to certain rules, which limit our freedom. You can’t draw a building by winging it; you have to follow the rules. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to draw a house in two-point perspective step by step.
What You Will Need
We won’t copy the reference, but we’ll need some kind of base to know what we’re trying to draw. You can draw with any tool, but it’s best to use some drawing software for this.
If you want to avoid extreme distortion in the final product, make the horizon line much longer than your intended drawing – just follow the instructions below.
Height is the only dimension in 2-point perspective that remains vertical; the shorter the height in relation to the horizon line, the less extreme the distortion; if the edge line is moved to the left, the front will be more visible at the expense of the side.
The farther away the vanishing point is, the more of the side you want to see.
Draw one front edge between the lines, then shorten it according to the angle between the left edge and the ground (the smaller the angle, the shorter the line).
Everything parallel to them will go towards a vanishing point – this is what happens when you draw a straight line along either side of the boundary between space and time – and you can now connect both edges of the two lines to create a full surface of the front wall of your house.
Let’s look at this drawing of a front porch now that you know how to draw in perspective. Because perspective distorts proportions, we need to place the guide lines carefully, and it’s best to use special algorithms to divide an area into equal parts.
Even in perspective, the diagonals of a rectangle show the center, so this is how we divide a rectangle into halves: keep this middle line fully vertical, and one half appears longer than the other when viewed from this angle. That’s how perspective works, and why you can’t just use a ruler.
Keep these guide lines as visible as possible so they don’t get mixed up with the drawing’s final lines.
More guide lines are needed to properly place the elements on the wall; because this is a building, we can expect the elements to be proportioned. Measure the height of the outline above the windows and the lower part of the wall, and mark them on the edge.

What is 2point perspective?
Parallel lines along an object’s width and depth are represented as meeting at two separate points on the horizon that are 90 degrees apart as measured from the common intersection of the lines of projection.
