Friends of mine have bought a cabin in the woods and it's a work in progress.

I helped them to pictorially visualize the possibilities by usingmy "Digital Image Pro" program to create a before and after shots of different parts of the house, by superimposing carpets, furniture, fireplace etc.

Thought that it might be helpful to anyone on this forum who is planning to do a little remodeling. Some of the pictures I got off of the Internet and others I just photographed the furniture in their main home, cut it and pasted it. The same thing can be done with Photoshop or many of the other programs out there.

This is their long and narrow upstairs bedroom. I reworked it to show what it would look like with a dormer bump-out and new windows.

Here's a long shot from the kitchen. Before and after with furniture, fireplace and a new stair railing.

Great work - what a difference a little creativity can make! Your friends are lucky - the cabin has possibilities but it's hard to see that in it's current condition. Your mock-ups show what a wonderful place it could be.

Good work Hiroshi I like the final designs
As a CAD (AutoCAD / Inventor) guy some of these programs amaze me.

I wonder what Martha Stewart would say :blah:

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

My friends had a hard time visualizing the final results and as you can see, the programs we use here on the forum can be used for other applications.

I haven't used any architectural programs yet and I know there are several out there. Maybe that'll be my next step, causeI had a blast doing these.

Hiroshi moving part of the left wall across in the bedroom on the left and adding the window and storage seating is brilliant I missed that before whe n looking the ceiling angle changes does this entail external roof changes ?

No. The "A" frame roof allows the dormer to be extended about 4 feet. the only new roof construction would be the dormer area. If you look carefully, I also placed a flush in wall storage by the chair, allowing for a shallow shelf at top a deeper one bellow and a deep drawer on the bottom.
