As you now know, our recent dive back into the academic field means that we’ve been re-acquainted with a demon from our past: homework. Even though I praised the day that we left it behind years ago, it turns out that putting a few extra hours in between classes each week hasn’t been so bad. After Kim was gracious enough to show her assignment from last week, I figured it was my turn to release my work to the fine folks of the interweb.
While not as colorful and masterfully assembled as Kim’s project, I actually really enjoyed this one. It may look simple, but this is a scan of a piece of trace paper that was laid over the 3D graph (where each square of the graph equals 1 square foot) of the same 15′ x 25′ room. The scale and perspective on this project was tricky, and we each ended up taking (many) hours to get right. I even left out the bar stools I had placed at the island and the upper cabinets in the kitchen for lack of time. Our professor promised that it gets easier every time you do it. I certainly hope so.
Are any of you whipping out the graph paper for school, too? Maybe it brings back memories, or are you such a pro that you bang them out daily for work? If so, are you going the old fashioned route of trace paper and a 3D grid, or do you give it the full on AutoCAD treatment? Pointers are welcome, but I plead the same treatment as my wife – be gentle.
