Best way to make a Gothic porch?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at Home Designer Pro to produce some models of Victorian Gothic houses, and one feature I'd like to create is an ornate porch with a front door surrounded by windows like in this picture:

What's going to be the best way of creating something like this? I'm particularly thinking about the columns on the front, with a Gothic arch from their tops, then the recessed space with the door at the back, and the window collection around the door. Presumably the roof could be fairly automatic with a high pitch angle and extra details added to it.

 

Thanks.

Pro will do much of that, but you may need to create some of the decoration in a program like SketchUp and import into Pro.

 

Suggest you download the trial and see for yourself. There are several people answering questions here that are good at modeling this type of structure.

 

Also, this is not an official support forum, just users helping each other, so you may also want to contact Home Designer sales.
