The COMET: Interior SketchUp Models

So today I spent all day inside The COMET (which was surprisingly warm despite the 30 degree weather outside and considering it has no heat, broken windows and 1950's insulation). I was measuring all of the interior space (cabinets, beds, appliances, etc) and simultaneously making a SketchUp 3D model so that I could begin to figure out how much I need of each material (flooring, countertop, paint). Here are some stills of the model I'm working on...and keep in mind, it's a rough draft! The green color is just to differentiate between walls and cabinets. Soon I'll use these stills to diagram the interior space in a more conceptual way. Also, this is just the interior measurements (no windows, no door) and the exterior still needs to be measured. Google SketchUp is a free 3D modeling tool, it's very easy to use and an awesome resource. If you don't already use it, download it and start fooling around!
