    urban sprawl, with Sketch UP

    Sprawl is spreadout and flat, one story and rambling, at least that is what we need here , not "UP" on the third floor! Attachment 9063Attachment 9064Attachment 9065 I'm thankful for the work!
    This is a new one in the works. Third floor, sink, fridge, ice and uppers.Now what can we do with that? Can be basic boxes or a little bit of fufu. It is their call now, to choose a style, lean toward one, do a combination of the aforepictured drawings or just show me a photo and I can plagarize it ,(I hate that)!

    Robert, how would you feel about collaborating on this one? You send me the dimensions and other important stuff and I'll do up some SketchUp sketches. We can go from some basic, get the feel of the project to final working drawings if you'd like.

    Hi Dave,
    You are always so considerate, I think that might be an interesting trek.
    I have some concrete dimensions, I just don't have the job yet! I do however have the desire to see some of this freehand go toward the Professional and to see it in 3d would be a trip . What dimensions would you like to start with?

    Hello back. How about we start with some basic case sizes, door sizes and so on? Something so that a simple study could be done to show the client.

    How about a photo of the area and then some numbers?

    Attachment 9088

    This is the space, with a light patterned carpet seen on the far side of several dark theater chair backs.
    My fixed stats are... cabinets butt wall on left ( wall comes out about 30")
    Both upper and lowers die there. Height is no issue as it is a high ceiling and the cabinets stop way short. There is a door to the attic space, the casing is approximately 105" from the left wall. The counter top is 36" to the finished surface and I have determined the length to be 99". That will leave a 6" space not crowded by the door casing. I know that is not enough to work with but I guess I am thinking we need to set the limits first and then the details. Is that working for you?

    The next set of fixed dimensions are the appliances. We have an ice maker at 34 1/8" H X 14 15/16" wide X 24" to the front of the door. That will be centered between a 24" w cabinet to it's left and a fridge to the right size being 34 1/8" H X 23 15/16" wide X 23 7/16" deep ( including door). The appliance sizes were fixed but not the 24" cabinet. I got that size (width) by determining a comfortable size for the sink on the countertop. The sink is to show about 20". I figured 8 1/2" to the right of the sink for counterspace, 20" for the sink and 7 1/2" counter space to the left of the sink to the edge of the fridge below.
    In considering these dimensions, the counter top finished tile surface will be at 37 1/4" not the 36" formerly mentioned due to the tile band being 2 1/2" plus a space(grout line) and then the thickness of the top layer of tile. Better now than when we can't get the appiances under the counter! The sink cabinet will be 35" wide leaving a 1" overhang of the counter and still center the sink in the center of that 17 1/2" center point.

    Sorry to disappear last night. I tried to check in and got some error message about the server bandwidth limit being exceeded. I tried a few times then gave up and went to bed.

    So here's what I've got so far. Does this seem to jive with what you were thinking? I just cut an opening for the sink. I'm not sure of the front to back depth so I guessed.

    Dave,
    That is a great rendition of the lowers. Right now the view is much too big for the screen. How can I downsize the "super sized" image?
    How did you do this artist rendition?
    Are you keeping secrets???
