    One of the more interesting custom home projects in progress. I just finished getting the roof on yesterday and it was nice working with a non-gabled roof for a change. Much will change before we’re done as this will be going to client review next week.

    5,000+ sf across 3 levels
    7 bedrooms
    3.5 baths

    One of the walk-in closets will be in fashion with the recent Cadsoft post…with an island in it and under-counter W/D

    Great way to take advantage of Envisioneer’s abilities. I many times present just a single or specific aspect of the design so the customer can see important things before proceeding.

    By doing a roof study now, you eliminate future issues and help to define what is happening to interior ceilings.

    Nice progress SDS

    Thanks Jack, end of day update attached below.

    Usually when I design a (floor) plan I’ve already got a very good idea what the roof is doing but this (very special) client wants a very specific style that I’ve not designed before…all that ‘architect-ey’ flat roof stuff. So I derw up the preliminary floor plans back in Nov/Dec without much notion about how I was going to handle the roof…scary for me.

    Envisioneer has been stellar in quickly working it out here, though the client may very well still not like it hahahaha I’ve had a LOT of fun the last few days working on this model and plan a full interior/exterior model with walk-thru’s and 360* renders

    I’ll post again when I work out the entry side of the house

    First impression was , Wow, that has some nice lines to it. Looks Great.

    I like the right trim / texture color change around those windows. Really makes them POP. The masonry work becomes nice features by themselves and even the small chimney looks good. Too many today are just boxed in and sided, no pizzazz to them.

    I know you want to extend the left living area roof, but it does look oversized in scale to the space below.

    I bet it is fun spinning it around in 3D and seeing all the interactions.

    thanks for posting.

    I really have to thank you again for the tip on material intensity…liberally applied in the update render and I love how it has toned down the overall picture, combined with the Tree & Billboard reduction, it’s really a much more pleasant image to view and I wasn’t really aware of the problem

    Much obliged!

    SDS,

    Whoa that one looks like a lot of fun. Really like the faceboard on that last render pic looks great! that just jumped out at me.

    Thanks Conrad, that double fascia board really does look great but I’ve got to give credit to Jack(?)

    The sample pics from the client show it and the default envisioneer roof looked really plain without it…like, not acceptable. then I remembered a convo here on the forums about modeling ridge-caps & valleys. Someone had mentioned that you can create members that you can set to slope values and I’d been wanting to use it

    it’s a 1×4 member set to slope on the roof rakes and using the roof properties dialog (e) Fascia Distance to elevate the horizontal pieces…it actually didn’t take too long to install them, well worth the effort!

    I’ll probably be using them more often now that I can.

    Now if I could only apply the method for modeling frieze boards!!

    End of day update…front of house.

    I’ve never modeled landscaping to this extend. So far so good…the black windows tend to be a problem getting the window details visible. Trial and error with glass.

    I’ve also included a current rear view…minor adjustments.

    My head hurts now 🙂

    (My engineer is going to drive down here and kick my ass when I show this to him!)

    End of day Tuesday

    Preliminary kitchen render…checking light levels, basic appearance in rendered form…always SUCH a hassle these interior renders. I love modeling them but I hate rendering them. There were no sample pics provided by the client for the kitchen so I expect everything here will change once they see it. I prefer darker finishes but the ladies always like it bright.

    Stair screencap…the client is very particular about the stairs and provided a sample pic I’ve included here, I don’t have a wood finish dark enough to do it right so I went with a nice grey finish. When done I’ll transfer the actual design of the stairs from Envisioneer to my autocad plans, for construction…still a long way to go before the stairs are ready to render though.

    Just lower the texture intensity of a Benjamin Moore paint and you can get that dark stairway finish (and in this case go into the properties and make the surface shiny) that’s how i change most of my color either raising it to make it lighter or lowering it to make it darker.

    But it looks good . And i agree i like dark wood cabinets. I’m not a painted kitchen cabinets guy.
