The Living Room: A 3D Rendering

Wow. Um. This may be the dorkiest thing I’ve done yet.

I’ve created a 3D rendering of my living room (to scale), which I populated with furniture, animated, set to music, and uploaded to YouTube.

    Hehe. I’ll go with “cute”, rather than “dorky”.

    When the model tipped in the animation, I was expecting all of the furniture to come sliding out of the room. I have no idea what I was thinking. Ha!

    That’s seriously one of the best things I’ve seen… I’m forwarding it to my cousin, an architecture major, who has shown me stuff like this that he made — but his were always super modern buildings or flaming swords or something… and yours is real and cute and more the thing I like!

    You’re always so busy with work, home improvement projects, etc., when do you find the time to do these things?!?!?

    I’m amazed at how industrious you are.

    Yeah, I don’t think you can layout your furniture any other way. If you did my suggestion and flipped the couch, it (plus the end tables) would cover the entire expanse of the room. Not. Good. The middle space is more for a love or a couple of chairs, if anything.

    How do you think the furniture was arranged in that room originally, before the advent of TV?

    Love it!

    Expected to see June Cleaver come waltzing into the living room with a plate of cookies for Wally and the Beav. And I mean that in a good way!

    put the tv in the corner where the red chair is, and angle the couch in the opposite corner?

    back to the t.v. arrrangement
    do you have to have both of the
    doorways on either side of the t.v.??
    could you get along with just the one
    to the right of the tv and do away with the other?
    thus creating a corner and hang the monster

    We’ve decided to give the plasma TV back, so we’re keeping the furniture the way it is.

    um did you do that in SketchUp? Very cute.

    Yep, that was done in Google SketchUp. I have no idea how I found the time to learn the program and make that little rendering. It took waaaaay too long!

    Ha! As your room tipped up to show the floorplan, I just expected all the furniture to fall to the bottom of the screen! Very clever indeed.
