Hi guys, I have been living in this home for several years, and it’s a solidly built home; however, it’s poorly designed and laid out. The issue with the house other than the aesthetics is:
1.It’sDark in Winter
2. It has hard surfaces everywhere
3. is not a relaxing environment
4. It’s getting dated, so I want to future proof the design if possible
l, Iike every builder I suspect, don’t enjoy working on my own home, and like every designer, I struggle to be as creative on my own home as I would on customers homes. I that just me?
I am happy to get feedback or constructive criticism if you have any yet I also thought it would be helpful for others to see my workflow so I’ll try and take shots as I go.
So first, I modelled up the home from a set of drawings provided by the estate agent.
Here is a screenshot:
The model is basic at this stage, and I did it in about 1 hour using PlusSpec.
I did not bother measuring up 100%, I’d say it’s 98% accurate, which is sufficient to do a sun study and quick floor plan layout, make alterations or add an extension/outdoor area. No doubt in the future, I will kick myself I should not have been so lazy, and I should have measured everything 100%; however, at this stage, the design might not meet Mrs Dwight’s liking or be feasible, so I’ll press forward
