So I dabbled with building and architectural design. No Bigger test than designing and building your own House! I paid for the engineering degree, might as well put the skills to good use heh? So we purchased the house in 2013 with the intention of extending the side and the Back We completed phase one in 2015 i think. Nothing Exciting, bog standard side extension. I did the surveying and the Cad model For the proposed build; supplied them to our Draughtsman, Brian Gill, to check the design add the details for meeting building Regs. He laughed at me when I asked what him what software he used; Good old Manual Method. Old school! Brian Retired and we were unable to hire him again for part Deux. Toby
A client was having Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) at his house and the supplier wanted some 2D drawings of his house to plan the Job. So I put in my CAD skills and Basic building experience to the test : I visited the site, took some measurements, Built him a 3d Model, some renders, the 2d drawings. And An a VR viewable model, as I just happened to be experimenting with these technologies at the moment.
