Re: Tudor Castle version 2

I'd posted that previous comment from my smartphone, and didn't have the screenshots available to post. Well, here goes...


Front Aerial.


Back Aerial. The table is supposed to be have a glass top but it's hard to tell that from the screenshot.


Main floor floor plan. I'd taken out the roses from the front and replaced them with more hedges, but now that I look at it I think I should have adjusted the other hedges to be closer together...


Top floor floor plan. I think I might need to rethink the width of the bathroom door (not the one to the Master Bathroom) as it seems somewhat cramped in there... or make adjustments in order to widen the room? And I might put a blanket chest in the Master Bedroom, just like in the other bedrooms on this floor... Speaking of the Master Bathroom, I just realized I didn't mark the Linen closet it there and I should get back in there and fix it; it's labelled as "16 sq ft".

For some reason, this version doesn't seem to me to be as dramatic/unique as the 3-story version... sad

I think I'll try getting pictures of the inside soon. I'll be taking bdfd's advice (as mentioned in another thread) and have a separate file for that. smile

Re: Tudor Castle version 2

I think this is your best project. really like the tudor styling and this would look great in a gated estate anywhere in the uk.
re file size
I have noticed that the file sizes certainly get larger as we introduce objects from sketchup etc, might be worth cutting them and pasting them back in for renders.

Re: Tudor Castle version 2

Thanks for the advice, Miker777.

I think I'll do what I've done with the Bed and Breakfast in another post and create separate files for each furnished floor and an unfurnished master file (except for the stuff I've got on the outside). smile

That way, I can get rendered exterior pictures instead of these screenshots.

Rendered exterior pictures.





Okay, I don't know what's going on with that one spot on the front stone section...

Re: Tudor Castle version 2

Yes, I realize it's been quite a while since I've posted anything here (nearly 2 months! shock ). I was working on different projects as well as being out of town for a while.

I've recently made a few - I guess - "improvements" on the exterior of this house. No rendered pictures unfortunately, only screenshots. sad I think the "improvements" are giving the program a little "indigestion"; it starts to render, then freezes up and I have to force quit the program. I don't think it has to do with the file size; when I save and compress it, it's only about 37.9 MB. I don't know.

Anyway...


Front, aerial view.


Front, virtual visitor view.

I added a couple of Sassafras trees in the front yard. There are also some hedges I've added to the side of the fencing near the garage (visible in the aerial shot). I've added some rose bushes between the hedges, and changed the roses from pink to purple. Oh, and I changed the wood on the flower beds near the front door, from I think it was "Old wood" to "Dark wood", better to match the house.


The roses are supposed to look like this (this is the artwork I used for them anyway).


I also changed the stone facade on the bottom floor. This is what I used.

I also found out why that one strip of the wall in the front didn't render very well before; there was another partial wall that was hiding with the beige roughcast that I'd used for the other floors exterior walls being used. I got rid of that wall and, if I could render it, it should look better.


Back, aerial view.


Back, virtual visitor view.

I added a couple of Aspen trees. I was able to extend the patio roofing, using a pergola I found on 3D Warehouse. The corrugated roofing is supposed to be somewhat see-through. I've also added more seating (a couple of benches, a corner couch and an armchair), a coffee table, second dog house, and a small china cabinet, as well as extended the paved area.


Back, virtual visitor view, from the kitchen's back door. Here's a better view of the couch, armchair and coffee table.

You can also see that I still have no back fencing. I think I'll leave it like that for now.

Re: Tudor Castle version 2

While trying to sleep, I realize that I have forgotten to add something else to this house... a centralized heating and air conditioning unit!

I guess I'll just have to see to that in the morning.

Re: Tudor Castle version 2

The new wall texture is better and I love the blue roses! Great place to live (but no air conditioning for me ;-)

Re: Tudor Castle version 2

Thank you, VeroniQ. blushing

Where I live, an HVAC unit is a definite must. So I put an outdoor unit in, and in doing so I made some adjustments to the back. And in doing those adjustments I added a few things, as well as some additions that weren't necessary but I wanted done anyway. smile
