when sketchup imitates life

Lauren Zerbey

We started modeling our house in SketchUp a few years ago. Since then, it has helped us figure out the overall redesign for the main floor, choose the color scheme for the exterior, and flush out specific details like our fence and loft ladder. While we’ve been pretty precise about dimensions, colors and materials, I never really thought the final product would look like the “sketchy” model, especially considering that our house is 100 years old.

But I have to say, I’m a little weirded out/amazed at the comparison.

Obviously we’re still missing the barn doors (doors…totally overrated!) and we changed a few small things along the way, but all in all, SketchUp doesn’t lie.

The last time we did a SketchUp comparison, it was way back in April (see that post here). This photo was taken at the end of demo day, when chezerbey felt more like a barn than a house. Ugh, I get tired just looking at this!

Needless to say, it’s been a busy year!
