Well, this isn't that. We had worked on a set of plans for the small wooden Mennonite house. We even built a model of it. It's not much to look at - the hip roof is built out of scrap foam-core so we could save some sheets for future models (good thing too - we used 'em).
I have to be truthful - it was Dianna who came up with the idea. I took her sketch and did the below drawing, and both of us worked on the model.
The software we used for this project is some new software we downloaded, called "SmartDraw 2007" (http://www.smartdraw.com). It's not cheap (around $200 - don't tell Dianna), but it's extremely easy to use and produces very nice drawings. It's great for all sorts of other things as well, such as wiring diagrams, certificates, etc.

For those that have known us for a while, we had built a similar model before, for the house we built on Rogers in Olympia (Sandy and Owen's house now). It really came in handy for us and the contractor to be able to show what we wanted, to view how things would look through windows, traffic flow, etc. It's also a lot of fun to build. Now all we have to do is get the real McCoy built.
