hi szzer, I'd like to add two image to https://wiki.osarch.org/index.php?title ... .282020.29 if that's okay with you. Could you point me to or upload the two best pictures? I see a fine 3d and a permit drawing at the start of the thread. The 3d is fine, maybe you'd like to upload a larger version of the permit drawing (maybe redacted). Looks like a nice drawing and we need more examples of workflows for producing drawings.

No problem.

I've added some images and a 2d drawing to the github that I have the cad files.

The beauty board has approved :-).

The final design is:
final house render 1k.png
final house render 1k.png (558.08 KiB) Viewed 593 times
I'll now work on the technical details, and make the CAD file IFC compatible (see if I can make it into a better example for others).

Once I've managed to make the cad files more IFC compatible I will share them.

All other features I add in Inkscape.
I'd love if you could upload the finished drawings as examples for the osarch website https://wiki.osarch.org/index.php?title ... w_Examples

If you don't mind a little input; how about a small roof section overhang over the front door for those rainy days. I also like to add the front door light to the overhang so it shines downward instead of wall mounted. I put a corner window in my shop, I like it.
I live with snow and ice so roof overhang is the best way to preserve the siding, I usually design in almost a meter but that comes at a cost.

Nice design, looks good.
