3D House Model

September 15, 2008

I have been modeling my house plan in 3 dimensions using Google Sketchup. This lets me evaluate the shadowing both exterior and interior of the at various times of day and months of the year, specifically for my location in Newbury. The first two pictures show the shadowing at noon June 21, from the north and from the south side. Notice there is no direct sun entering the south windows of the house or garage.

The last two pictures show the shadowing at noon January 1, from the north and from the south side. Notice there is direct sun entering the south windows of the house and garage well back into the interior.
