3D Interactive Design By REEF Builders

Posted by Matthew Teague on Tue, Feb 23, 2021

Here's an interactive walk through of one of our current projects in the design stages here on Cape Cod. We are experimenting with different virtual reality integrations to provide the customer the ability view the actual design in 3D. The next iteration of this concept will include complete VR integration where customers can look at different finishes or layouts in real time with the click of a button. REEF is currently leading the way in custom home design and VR integration on Cape Cod and will continue to invest in these cutting edge technologies to provide our customers with an immersive design experience!


The accuracy and authenticity of these 3D models will also allow the customer to set clear expectations for what the final building product will look and feel like. This is a fantastic tool for custom home projects or renovations and additions.

Building A Waterfront Home Part III - 3D Design

Posted by REEF Cape Cod's Home Builder on Thu, Jun 08, 2017

Welcome to Part III of our series on planning, designing and building a waterfront custom home on Cape Cod. Currently, this project is nearing the construction phase, and the final plans have been turned into a 3D rendering to allow our customer the ability to get a very accurate feel for the design both inside and out. An accurate, 3D rendering is a great way to view the house on the site, with accurate topography, finishes and furnishings, and allows the owner to see and feel what it will be like to live in their new home. When designing a waterfront custom home, maximizing the view is always the driving factor. However, important considerations such as interior and exterior finishes, interior layout and overall feel of the home are still incredibly important. Our 3D rendering capabilities are extremely helpful in assessing the overall design and confirming that we have met the owner's design intent.

If you are considering designing and building a home on Cape Cod, contact us today to see what our design and construction team can do for you. Our team of designers and custom builders have a 30 year history of successful projects here on Cape Cod. As we always like to remind our customers, "You've been visiting the Cape your whole life, Isn't it time you stayed?"

3-D Print your new Cape Cod Home?

Posted by REEF Cape Cod's Home Builder on Tue, May 16, 2017

There are several great tools available to designers and homeowners to help envision what a new custom home, renovation, or addition might look like in 3-D. Readily available software like AutoCad, Revit, and Sketchup can all produce high quality renderings, but nothing beats a true architectural model. Recently, we had the opportunity to work with one of our customers and have their design printed to scale on a 3-D Printer. This exercise was extremely helpful to our customer by providing a clear look of how the spaces will feel and look, far better than any computer generated views of the home.

Here are some pictures of the model (printed to 3/16" =1' Scale) in actuality - the physical model is about 12"x12"x8" tall
