Thanks, outburner. When I created the original sketch I hadn’t considered the back, but when I started to created the outline drawings - for modeling- I came up with one but as I started to model also made some changes so it can reflect the styling of the front more. anyways, will post some sample later do visually show what I’m talking about.
Your floor plan rendering looks great. It’s certainly reminiscent of the drawing style, used in the days before CG , when it was done by hand along with the pastel colors. Cool.
Regarding Sketchup, I had tried it several years ago myself and found I kept coming back to my favorite tools, but I do like some of the features that help when building architectural models. Then again, it makes sense, since it looks like it was intended more for Architects or those in technical fields.
