Experience the work and rewards of being an architect
The 3-D Home Kit lets you experience some of the work and rewards of being an architect. With it, you can design and construct a detailed, 3-D model of your own house design.
Instructions and seven house designs are provided (if you don't want to design your own). See our instructional videos too.
The kit includes complete poster-board materials from brick, stone, siding, roofing and decking to windows, doors, skylights, kitchen cabinets and appliances. Each sheet is illustrated with a building material on one side and a 1/4-inch grid on the other side. The grid makes it easier to construct your model and the illustrations give the model realistic detail.
There are also poster-board materials for interior walls and stairs, plus an 18 x 24 inch floor plan grid, a scale ruler and roof slope calculator.
You can construct a 1/4-inch scale model up to approximately 2,500 square-feet. Whether you're planning a real or dream home, the 3-D Home Kit will help you develop your skills and imagination as you experience first-hand how architects, designers and engineers work (it's challenging work). One user described the kit as "like LEGO Architecture on steroids!"
