hey thanks google.

This is a model I’ve been working on in google sketchup.  Fifteen years ago this kind of modeling software cost thousands of dollars.  Today, thanks to google, it’s free.  A perspective like this could take hours to generate on autocad back in the day.  In sketch up, you can fly through your model in real time.  It is truly amazing the resources that are available on the internet today.

Not a very complicated building, in and of itself.  But with the conventional panel siding next to the “rain screen” application, the transitions, flashing and waterproofing techniques, the layers add up.

Need to tweak the spacing of the layers, then probably render  the east elevation to show the finished appearance.
