You made your decision; you are finally going to build that log home. Not just any log home, but that special creation you've held in your mind's eye for so many years. You have walked on those hardwood floors, gazed out from behind those oversized picture windows, cooked dinner, curled up by the fire, and even slept in that special home _ using that vivid imagination of yours. Oh yeah, you've been dreaming about your log home for a long time, and you have finally decided to make your dream become your reality.
The informal lifestyle of California became popular as early as the late 1940s and magazines began to promote casual living as the ideal. Influences such as courtyards, patios and other Spanish colonial architectural details were embraced and played upon. What was known as the front porch or veranda, was moved from the front to the back of the house and heralded the arrival of a significant lifestyle change. Families now preferred the privacy of their back yard rather than sitting on the front porch watching traffic.
Why use 3D rendering? If you are looking to build a home or you have a development project, 3D rendering is such a great tool. It gives you the opportunity to see the project before you even start to build! From the facades, right down to the light fixtures. This allows you to ensure that you get everything you want and need out of your new design. This technology has completely changed the dynamics of architecture and engineering as it gives you the ability to see exactly what the home or development will look like before you even start to build. If you are looking to build in Sydney or anywhere in Australia then 3D rendering will give you the freedom to design it and then build it!
