Buying a new home is stressful--the annoying agents, the insane closing costs, the scary amount of money you’re spending. Ouch.

But once you move in, all the pain is forgotten.

Celebrate the life-changing moment with a drawing of your home by Cape Horn Illustration.

Cape Horn artist Phil Thompson specializes in custom, hand-drawn, pen-and-ink creations ($175 to $350, depending on size) that are the perfect housewarming present for yourself or any new-buyer friend.

Simply snap a few photos of the house, email them to Thompson and four to five weeks later your drawing will be ready. You’ll get the original image on acid-free, off-white paper (add a frame for an extra $50 to $100), plus a link to a digital version, so you can use it again. (We’d put that puppy on stationery or a moving announcement.)

You can also send Cape Horn a picture of an important home in your life (think Grandma’s beach house), and Thompson will whip that up, too.

Home ownership: such a beautiful thing.
