If you are really considering a tiny house, you may have already been to a tiny house convention or perhaps even stayed in a tiny Airbnb. This would have helped you get a sense of scale with the designs you visited, but then you probably continue your design and add a cabinet here or there and move the kitchen to the opposite side of the room. What then? Will the room still have the same open feel? Helping answer these questions, are 3D models. The model will allow you to walk around the structure, virtually. Without the need of making costly mistakes during your building process. You can see if the washer door will interfere with the sink vanity or simulate your waking up process as you stumble down the stairs (or ladder?) to get your morning coffee. Is the hand rail in the correct location and does it perform another "happy accident" function? Happy accidents can be designed into your structure with the help of 3D models. Make sure everything has multiple purposes. You don't want your front door to bang into a sharp corner every time it opens. So why not make a coat rack that doubles as a door stop?
I know, that was a lot of questions. And many more can be answered with the help of a 3D architectural model. Our design team can even go as far as incorporating all framing elements, insulation, waterproofing, connections, and mechanical systems into the model to insure full, harmonious integration. A 3D model is the easiest way to understand how to construct framing elements. And our 3D models are easily transformed into 2D shop drawings so you can have a paper copy with dimension when you are in your shop. Are you questioning how much wood you should buy before starting your project? The guess work is taken out of the equation when you can count each stud in the model. A complete cutlist can be generated as well.
Is virtual reality your thing? In addition to viewing your structure on a screen, we can work with you to create a virtual reality experience so you can physically walk through your virtual space. This may sound excessive, but if you are designing a structure you will spend a good portion of your life in, it is important to get the details right. Getting the details right the first time is the main objective of our models. This will save you money and avoid time delays by avoiding making changes on the fly during construction.

Interior design can be hard. That is another benefit of our 3D models. We can include textured surfaces and change the color of your walls with a click of a button rather than hours spent painting. We can make sure each component you select will be coherent with the feel you are going for. Do you want to do your own interior design? We can give you a blank slate model and you draw in the appliances, cabinets, couches; you select the colors and place the outlets and light switches. If that task sounds daunting, we can do it for you and work with you to make it exactly what you want. Our rates are competitive and nothing compared to the savings you will have from avoiding changes. Build with us, and your model is included, as it is what we use to build all of our structures.
