New Job......New Kitchen Render...

Hi Guys

Just started working for Homebase....

This has taken me a few hours as I had to model the sink, tap, extractor, oven, microwave......nearly everything really  :P

Cannot get a decent render out of the 2020 Design software we use... and could not create the wall tiles the customer wants to see in the design... so TC to the rescue!

excellent work and some lovely detail, I like the vertical radiator,  can I make a teeny weeny comment if its in the UK - is the plug socket that way up by design as the earth is usually at the top, though I have seen them fitted upside down (hope you don't mind)

Darrel, beautiful job and hope you get the job, on the upper cabinets I noticed the crown moulding starts right at the intersection of the doors. Very interesting, I have never seen that before but they look great. Carroll

Well Guys..... I am now unemployed....

I find it disappointing that I have not had the opportunity to use my design and visuals skills to the full to inspire your customers who deserve, and usually appreciate, my efforts and are happy to buy from me.

I wish you and Homebase the best of luck in the future.

Yours sincerely,
Darrel Durose

Don't let get you down.Clearly its not the place for you.This gives you an opportunity to take your skills to the next level.Come over to the U.S. there jobs over here for guys with good cad skills.I had boss that like that.But I didn't care at any point because back in mind I knew he had breaking point where if he didn't like to he tell to hit the road.But before for I left made sure I was going lay into him before I go and tell and show what I was made of.In long run I didn't lose the job and I prevail and a eventually was promoted to supervisor.Than as time went by than a better offer came up to move to better company and it was my decision and on my terms.But it wasn't easy I must admit it got ugly but when came push to shove I 'll shove back.I been in my trade for over thirty years and there always people like that bullying in the work force.Just forget about the last place and go to the next job with positive mind set.It all come together for the better.

Thank WD

I think you are stronger than me, I do suffer from self confidence but I will stand up for myself when pushed. I have considered taking it further, and it could be now I am not in employment, to see where I stand. These people should not be allowed to get away with this behaviour. I don't know what you think? I often think, just move on and forget about it....

Thanks Brad

 I like to think, like you and many guys and gals on here and in this business, that I put my heart into everything I do. I often go beyond the norm to get a sale. I hope there is something out there I can find, be happy and excel at what I do without restrictions....

Great renders , and a good name  if I do say myself .
Sorry to hear about the job situation .  Have you ever thought about setting up in business for yourself , as it would seem that you have the talent.
You should have a word with some of your local builders , to see if they would be interested in any work you could drum up if you don’t have the skills to make the designs you come up with .
 â€œTop end of the market ( I.e . The people with the money for quality products ) don’t shop at Homebase  “.

I have thought about working for myself, I have in the past making furniture, was a good learning curve.... that's when I started using Turbocad. The financial side was not good, still have nightmares now that I am behind with the workshop rent and hiding from my creditors....

Your comment with regards to Homebase I agree to a degree... They are trying to go into the bespoke market that the independents have a hold on. The problem I see is how they scale up what they currently do to that level. The presentation of visuals and quotes in my opinion is not good...

Darrel,

First class renders!  My ten cents worth of advice on the job situation; our little company specialized only in toy/models of motorbikes...we loved doing them and we were specialists in the field.  But during an economic down-turn people just don't spend money on "toys", but spend it on essential items.  So we diversified...we now draw up house plans, pergolas, decks, engine parts...anything someone wants drawn/designed.  Our first love is still the toy design, but through necessity, we've branched out...people always need plans drawn up for council approval!  The work is there (we have more work than we can keep up with now), but we needed to be open to doing stuff we hadn't done before - a frightening step to take.  It is clear that you have the skills that can be adapted to a wide range of drafting situations...you might just need to look outside the box...best of luck.
