House 333A Double Portrait by Built4ever House 333A Double Portrait by Built4ever
My first serious attempt at 3D modeling. I tried some "rough" Sketchup models about a year ago, but now, things have changed. I'm planning on going digital much earlier in the design process now (when I design custom homes,) and doing full 3D models with accompanying construction documents and other special graphics not usually seen on construction plans. This model here is based on a series of sketches I submitted here under the name House #333. This model will be the basis for a plan for a builder. It will probably change quite a bit from you see here, but there's a good chance it will be built in 2014.

I'll be putting a lot more work into this model to add details and finish the garage and second floor. I have to say, I'm very impressed with the capability of this software.

Yes, haven't done many in a while but yes I do. All of the black and white images in my gallery are of actual builds.

Well my "day-time" job is the Space Manager for a small university up here. I did do a recent sketchup model of a garage for a client.

Yeah I saw that, it looks nice, but sheesh it's got a porch, a bay window. What's going on here? I wasn't sure what to make of it when I saw it. They want the garage to look like a house?

Garage/in-law suite I think ;)

AHA. Some people house their mother-in-law in the garage. She can sleep in the back seat of the Toyota.

I have to admit, I have a preference for your hand work.. Fortunately, your design creativity has not suffered from the transition to electronic media..

It's being forced. I have to generate as close to finished construction plans as possible, in house. Even if I hire help to add to, critique, modify, and otherwise take to a higher level, it's imperative that I at least generate a digital blueprint for other professionals, builders and designers alike. 3D models allow examination of complex exterior AND interior details and allow me to express to clients and other designers things I could not do with 2D sketches. I can also troubleshoot problem areas and eliminate issues. Looking at a roof on a 3d model makes it darn sure clear that the "roof works!" 

But here's the good news: in the end, I will go back into reverse in the time machine and do complex perspective drawings based on the outlines of a 3D model "still shot," making the early layout of a complicated perspective drawing a breeze!
