I'd like 2D, top down, big squares for the
buildings, with doors and windows, then fences,
trees etc. between them.

It doesn't have to look good in the
photorealistic sense - actually it is better it
just looks clean and to-the-point.

The purpose it to print it huge and put it on
a wall so people can learn what the different
houses are and can communicate efficiently with
things having names so it won't be "put it over
there... behind it... to your left... I mean
your *other* left" and so on...
