Renderings & Construction Image Comparisons

With everyone gearing up for the final week of major construction activity on the Starter Home 2.0 project, I thought it would be worthwhile to step back and take a look at how things have progressed from computer renderings to built results on the exterior and interior of the home. Unfortunately, for many projects, these two images end up looking not all that much alike as budget and constructability considerations are oftentimes neglected by architects (early on in the design process when renderings are generated), resulting in eventual value engineering exercises that eliminate and reconfigure many elements of the originally proposed design. However, this was not the case for the Starter Home 2.0 project, where special attention was paid to budget and constructability considerations from the very beginning, resulting in built work that is very much in line with what was envisioned in the computer renderings.
