This week I continued to work on my parent’s new house plans alongside my mom. They continued to get more complicated and intense as the week went on. My mom continued to want to move things around and it’s harder to work on the plan on the computer as you go along rather than finalizing on paper first before starting to program.
As we started finalizing room sizes and door sizes; we started to add windows and dimensions of everything. Since i’m still a beginner with Revit and just know the basics when it comes to creating a roof in that program; we met with their old draftsman, Terry Carter from Georgetown to help us with that part.
After meeting and working alongside Terry I learned more computer skills with Revit and actually more about AutoCad as well. Project organization was key this week as we finalized more areas of the house because since it is a larger plan than I am used to I really had to make sure everything was accurate and up to my mom’s high standards. I really believe that helping on this project will give me necessary skills I will need all of next year, especially with healthcare.
I still enjoyed this week even though it was just as long and intense as last week. The longest day I worked this week was about 13 hours and the other days were just detailed visits. The pictures below show progression of the drawings from last week to this week, very detailed computer drawing, and then the final plan we created this week actually printed out. Knowing my mom, the plans most likely will change within the next week, so I’m already preparing myself for another brutally intense week ahead of me.
