Dream House

I’ll start with this drawing from my old sketchbook.  The design is completely original (like a cross between a hacienda and a grand piano) and the drawing has appealing shapes and curves and rhythms.  Let’s take this  design to the next level.

The blueprints I’d already developed blueprints help me get started in Sketchup.

I worked out the complex geometry in 3D so this structure makes sense as a solid form, and the results match the drawings pretty well.  I’m also building my Sketchup skills in the process, so the exercise is productive.  Below are some screenshots of the finished model:

Notice the size of the doors.  I anticipate that these oversized doors will be commonplace in 20 or 30 years.
