SketchUp 3D Challenge #278: Cottage

Challenge Period: Monday, 4 December 2017 - Sunday, 17 December 2017

Cottage

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A cottage is, typically, a small house. It may carry the connotation of being an old or old-fashioned building. In modern usage, a cottage is usually a modest, often cosy dwelling, typically in a rural or semi-rural location. 
The word comes from the architecture of England, where it originally referred to a house with ground floor living space and an upper floor of one or more bedrooms fitting under the eaves. In British English the term now denotes a small dwelling of traditional build, although it can also be applied to modern construction designed to resemble traditional houses ("mock cottages"). Cottages may be detached houses, or terraced, such as those built to house workers in mining villages. The tied accommodation provided to farm workers was usually a cottage, see cottage garden. Peasant farmers were once known as cotters.
For the purposes of this challenge, you may model your cottage based any known design or one of your own in the style of your choice.

Cat tree

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A cat tree (also referred to as a cat tree house, cat condo, kitty condo, cat stand, cat post or cat tower) is an artificial structure for a cat to play, exercise, relax and sleep on. 
Cat trees vary in height and complexity, with most cats preferring features offering height over comfort, particularly if tall enough to allow a clear survey of their territory. While most cats seem to prefer tall cat trees, some prefer options which offer shelter or a secluded escape, which may be at any height of the structure.

SketchUp 3D Challenge #276: Toll Booths

Challenge Period: Monday, 6 November 2017 - Sunday, 19 November 2017


Originating from toll houses (where toll takers once lived), toll booths are used to collect fees for road construction and maintenance. Automation is quickly leading to their obsolescence but for now they live on.

For the purposes of this challenge, you are to model a toll plaza of any size you choose. You may include the modern electronic toll collection or automatic number plate recognition systems, but they must appear in addition to booths.
