Bidding on another kitchen.

I should know this week whether or not I have it. It is a complete remodel, well, we will be removing the cabinets and installing new ones with new formica counters, reinstalling existing appliances and plumbing fixtures as well as lighting fixtures and new backsplash material.

If I get the job I will post pictures of before and after as well as progress.

Here are a couple of E-Cabinet shots. It's very small and we are removing the existing soffit and going with 42"uppers for more storage.




Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

Good luck on the bid Dave. I hope you get the job.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

That looks like a pretty great layout. I hope you get the project. Could I give you one tip on future 3d models though? You took the time to render the shadows which is pretty impressive, and no doubt accurate to what the kitchen will actually look like. But if I were trying to sell this to someone, I'd get rid of those shadows, lessen them, or cheat the light source a bit. Why? Because as it is now the kitchen looks a little cramped and dark. That has nothing to do with your layout or the quality of the plans, and like I said I bet those shadows are accurate, but I'd cheat it a little to make your design look happier and brighter. Sort of like how in a jewelry store all that artificial lighting makes everything sparkle, but the ring never looks that good in real life.

Just my $0.02!

The shadows are created in the program based on the location of the lights and how they are placed. I'm still learning how to place lighting to get the most realistic look and not wash everything out.

I appreciate the tips.

Does it allow you to add multiple light sources (e.g., multiple bulbs, track lighting, multiple suns :) ? That might be a good solution.

It allows you to add multiple light sources which you can place where you want to get the shadows or highlight particular areas. Once you have the lighting where you think you want it you can then hide the fixture but keep the light source.
