After extensive research touring the hamlets and villages of Yorkshire (via Google Street View), I’ve come up with a design that I feel meets all of the criteria for Malton’s Angel Inn (see my previous posts). I started by using SketchUp as the key step in the design process. It is a very easy-to-use 3D modelling tool that enables me to quickly create a virtual prototype of a building – helping to identify any potential design issues well in advance.
The following two images are of the SketchUp model.
The model isn’t finished yet, and I probably won’t take it any further than this (it’s served its purpose), but you can see the basic form the building facade will take. The next two images show the first two pieces of balsa wood I cut this afternoon.
