First draft of house, in 3D, and in Loreto!

A couple of days ago we published the first draft of the house we wish to build. Click here to see how we did it using Google Sketchup.

We now went one step further and placed the 3D model directly on our lot integrating with Google Earth. This allows us to see what the house would look like exactly in its place, in Loreto. I created a small video (30 seconds) that shows what you can do with the model once you have it loaded in Google Earth:

If you would like to see the house in 3D on the lot, it's easy - follow these steps:

1) Download and install Google Earth. If you'd like to learn more, click here for information on Google Earth.

2) Dowload this file: Loreto-House-3D-David-Version-1.0.zip (right click on the file and choose "Save As..."). Then extract all files and double click on the file named doc.kml - it should open up and show the 3D model of the house place on our lot in Loreto, Mexico.

This is version 1.0 of our house design; Janelle has been busy working on alternatives, so soon we'll publish other ideas.
