3D Drawings

Okay, I admit, I’m pretty into doing this sewing room/ play room redo (feel free to just look the other way and gag anytime).  The other day I was talking over my plans with my husband and I mentioned about wishing I could see my plan in 3D and he said he tried out Google’s SketchUp (a free download).  Sounded like my kind of thing, so I jumped in and came up with two different options for my space:

I would highly recommend using this for anyone who has a hard time visualizing different ways a room can be planned out without actually moving the furniture (hey Care, maybe this one’s for you!?).  I guess anyone who has any Adobe Illustrator experience would be quite happy using Google SketchUp to tinker around.   The screen shots don’t really give this program justice, but trust me, it’s fun!  {Just a side note:  I should mention that these drawings aren’t to scale at all, I just did a really rough estimate of my room, but there are measuring tools if you want/need to be super accurate.}

I’ve made my Ikea list and have great plans for going in the near future (okay, well maybe TOMORROW!), hoping some of my items are in stock when they’re supposed to be.

    Wow, that looks like fun! I just might have to give it a go! :o)

    I definitely like your second option — if you allow my two cents! I assume that top left corner is your sewing area? It’s nice to kind of create your own little “room” within a room so you can try to keep things from spreading (at least by LITTLE hands!). I would use a rolly chair, too, if you don’t have one already. Then you can sit and turn different directions in your little spot. Very convenient!

    Can’t wait to see the transformation; it’s just too exciting!

    My husband uses sketchup for his home designs! ^_^ It’s pretty amazing. If you don’t want to take the time out to make all the furniture, you can download them online from the program.

    I’m going to have to check that out. We are planning a new bathroom and a laundry room.

    Thanks for sharing! This reminds of CAD that my uncle uses every time he designs a house, but then not as complicated as the CAD. Sounds very interesting! I love what you did with your creative space. Can’t wait to have my own creative/sewing room. 🙂
