I added some chairs, but can’t figure out how to put the point light into the glass sphere. It doesn’t let light through the glass, so I just put the point light below the light and it casts an undesired shadow. I’m going for an opaque shiny white sphere around the light bulb. I’m still learning this rendering thing.
Next up, appliances & furnishings (seat cushions). I’m not sure where to put the bathroom, but I was thinking of making a modern outhouse with a washer/dryer, bath/shower, storage, and trash/recycling all in one room (but maybe with a partition wall). Maybe the room could be a hemisphere and have roof over the path from the house to the outhouse… The bedroom would be on the bench in the house. Maybe there could be a spot that fits in a mattress. All in all, the house might end up only having two rooms, an inner yard & an outer yard.
Another problem I’ve having is figuring out an artistic looking driveway or garage plan… I don’t want to ramp up the costs too much, so I’d prefer a driveway. But I see merit to choosing a garage too, such as protecting your car from weathering and stuff. I’m considering making the driveway a ramp underground, then just putting a roof over the submerged area. But I’m not really satisfied with that design because of costs and I want the driveway/garage design to look cooler.
…I just realized the acoustics in an open space that big might be really echoey. Maybe it’ll get better if I add enough stuff inside… Carpet would help, but I’m not a big fan of carpet… And I want to keep the half-torus room open for walking around the roundabout.
In case you were wondering, the inner yard has a round seating area and a drain in the middle for when it rains.
