BimX Log Home Virtual Tour
Download and navigate our log home models virtually from the comfort of your own home!
Why is this important, and why you should care? Put simply, BIM is an interactive approach to designing customized homes and log cabins, which allows our customers to view their home virtually before construction begins. Contrary to popular opinion, BIM is NOT a new concept. Graphisoft (the makers of ArchiCAD), was the first to explore this system way back in 1987. The system has come a long way since then, but the basic premise of what is designed and how information is pulled from the model is still at the very heart of the software.
Once your log or timber home project is modeled using our BIM modeling software, which is specialized for log and timber homes, we will then send you a link to your own section of our website for a home plan for review. This downloadable software is a self-contained application that runs on Windows, Mac or even on the iPad. You will be able to see both inside and outside your home as if you were taking a real log home, virtual "walk-through" tour of the home. Most importantly, it allows you to review your home on your own timeline, with no meetings or added pressure of reviewing under deadlines. Simple controls allow most any user to operate, navigate, measure, mark-up, or even snap pictures of areas in question or in need of changes, for our design team to review and update.
Take a tour of your new home from the comfort of your current home or office, interacting with your design on your own time. What could be better? This software allows us to keep the highest standards of construction and expectations, and it gives us the opportunity to keep our costs down to a minimum, which allows us to pass this savings on to our customers. More on how to use this software after the break.
