This is something I've been thinking about for some time now.
Google Sketch up was the perfect choice to show the young lady what it would look like.
I did a quick drawing of the side of our home and added the deck to it.
One of our concerns was how the deck would help shade our windows and doors on the west side of the house and with sketch up I could set up the shadows feature and see exactly what would happen at any given time throughout the year.
This is cool stuff.
Someday I'll draw the rest of the house and maybe add the shop to the drawing.
That would be a great sales tool when we decide to relocate.
