Modeling my house

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!

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
