Advanced Estimating BIM Documents

In my Advanced Estimating class, I made the building information model because we were designing a house for my teacher. Since I was most interest in Revit, I took charge of it for my group. Conversations about the teacher's house went well. I asked questions about the lot location, the number of children, the purpose of the house, renewable energy ideas, interior design ideas, and more. I found out later that other groups did not ask these questions. Designers should know the lot that the owner has purchased before designing.

Final Revit Presentation for BYU Idaho

In my last Revit class, I designed a building that would serve as a good transition between the residence and university of Rexburg. My building is called the Thomas Monson Building.
The maximum size of the building could have been one hundred thousand square feet; however, the lot size was not big enough to push those limits of the the square footage with the four story building limit regulation in Rexburg, Idaho. The presentation should everything on it. Click on the picture to view it more closely.

Blanco House

My cousin asked me to design a house for them of this floor plan.


























Here is how the exterior looks.




The second project is the Blanco Home. When my cousin saw that I am learning Revit, seeing my rendering, she wanted me to help her design her future home. This folder has a few things that I have done for the house. These pictures show the Master Bedroom. Since the square footage is not set, I asked the client what they wanted. They indicated that they would like their master bed room to be about 250 square feet, and the entire house to be about 3000 square feet. This is why I am started with the Master bedroom. The design of the bedroom is inspired by my cousin’s Pinterest board. She said that she has been putting together ideas for more than 5 years. A lot of the inspiration of the design of the room is from the Master bedroom Pinterest board. I put the sliding glass window in because it seems that she likes a lot of natural light in the room from the pictures in the board. Another picture shows me practicing putting decal in the picture frames. I got this bed from Revit City to show my cousin the possibilities. My cousin really liked the fireplace. She provided me the floor plan, and the colored area is the master bedroom. I am guessing that the house will me much bigger than 3000 square feet, since the bedroom is 250. I put trim around the top, bottom, and skylight, which I designed. The trim and the skylight is the latest additions to the master bedroom of the cousin.

Framing a House


The third project is the pictures of my work in my framing systems Construction 120 class. We built a miniature house. I played an active role in the building of the entire house from the foundation work to the framing, the sheathing, and roofing.









TI of a Warehouse


The first is the project that I was taught the program of Revit on in ARCH 190. I designed the Tenant Improvement according to customers’ requests. An rendering is provided for both the warehouse and the TI, and a couple PDFs of my building plan making skills is in this folder too called 190 Warehouse and TI.









Here is the foundation plan of the warehouse that we built.

My Contribution to the Construction to the Provo City Center Temple



     My contribution to the Provo City Center Temple is very small, but a small contribution is big in my life. When I was working in the office of Delta Stone Products, I was given the job to estimate and design the stone for the stairs up to an entrance to the temple, but it turned out that the blue prints were not accurate to the dimensions and the size of the stairs. I told my leaders that the dimensions didn’t work, and the management had to consult the church on redesigning the stairs. The stairs is not a completely different, but the lengths of the stone had to be reconsidered. I was also able to sand a beehive that is also part of the hardscape of the temple. I learned that landscape and hardscape is similar. Landscape has to do with plants mostly, but hardscape is the stone work of a building. It took me like 12 hours straight of sanding by hand to complete one.
