Modeling my house
Read 7550 times

Hi, as I had some time on my hands, I started modeling my own house. It lies in the mid-East of Holland, close to the German border.
Of course a photograph would have been faster, but does not belong in a 3D Forum!
Modeling: TurboCad and Sketchup. Rendering, plants and some trees in Vue 7 Infinite.
Hope you like it.

Thanks Henry, I moved from Rotterdam to this village 14 years ago and never regretted that move for one moment.
Cheers,

Hi Rob,
              Beautiful work! Beautiful home! I am going to be somewhat rude and ask the possibility of our now seeing a picture of your actual home form a similar vantage point. I think it would speak volumes and help many of us understand your genius and vision.
Thank you for sharing you remarkable work again. ( If you choose not too, I appreciate your time and contributions none the less). Thanks -  Al

WOW!  Even that much more beautiful! Thank you Rob.  Your ability to fit these TCAD 3D renders into a real photo image is remarkable! Thank you once again.  -  Al

The real life picture makes the model even more impressive.....  Just need a few more weeds in the flower bed.  Thanks for sharing.

I expect to see Peter rabbit peering his head out of the garden. Lovely home! And very nice render!

Thanks Hammer, there are very little rabbits in this village but enough chicken and outside in the fields a lot of hare and deer!

Excellent work Rob, and a very close proximity match to the real house. I am impressed with the realism you have achieved.

Hi Rob,  The terrain was modeled in Turbocad and the house in Sketchup.
Sketchup is a very good program for architecture but not so good in tracing situation drawings.
It is able under some strict circumstances to convert a DWG into a Skp file with outlines and faces, but as a lot of situation drawings arrive as an abundance of single lines in stead of closed polylines, they are useless.
The reason I use Sketchup for modeling is that I apply materoals directly in Sketchup, like I used to do in Turbocad, but as I use Vue for landscaping and renderingm, the SKP files keep their materials with import.
And that is is a great time saver.
The ease of modeling in Turbocad and Sketchup is similar. Sometimes I model some parts of a house in TC because it has a smarter solution for that action..
I love both programs.

Absolutely beautiful Rob! Both the render and your home. Thanks for sharing these. I always enjoy seeing your work. I too, think TurboCAD and SketchUp fit nicely into the same toolbox. :)

Thanks Brad and Michael, for your nice comments.
Next week I will have a new project ready. I don't know how things are in the U.S.A. but here all building activity has almost come to a stop.
So every new commission is a great relief. A lot of colleages are facing big problems to survive financially and quite some architectural firms are going bankrupt or are firing a lot of personel.
But some day it will go better.

Cheers,

Rob
