We’ve recently completed the build of a 1 bedroom ADU in NE Portland. Now this post is not necessarily about the ADU (though it is cool). This post is about the above virtual tour.
We constantly get asked by potential clients if they can see one of our units. Our answer is almost always, “No, sorry, they are all private and occupied”. We then thought about building a demo model, but the cost is a bit extreme. So, how do we get potential clients to see our units? Virtually!
Above is a Matterport scan. It a 360º scan of our units that allows users to walk through our buildings. Just like Google Street View, users can “walk” around our units, look up, look down, and check out all the nooks and crannies of our structures. If you hit the play button on the bottom, a guided tour of the space starts. Next to the play button, hit the Dollhouse button on the bottom left and you can zoom out and get a great sense of the space, layout, and size from a bird’s eye view. While in Dollhouse mode, hit the Floorplan option and you can get a full floorplan view. Finally, if you have a VR viewer, in the bottom right, you can click the VR button and look around the space as though were were standing there!
This technology allows us to open the doors to all of our builds to you. Over the coming months, we’ll be adding more and more buildings for you to check out.
Let us know what you think!
