Senior Girl Scouts earn another badge with Harrell Remodeling’s Staff: “So you want to be a Designer?”December 20, 2010
Design your own dream room! If you could have any kind of room, what would it be, what would it look like? Now is your chance to become a Designer and learn the skills needed to create a 3D floor plan! Read and understand Architectural plans – what do all those symbols and vocabulary really mean? Watch as the drawing comes to life with CAD (computer aided design) and then becomes a reality as the final project shown is in a 3D Model. Discover the many styles of homes – is your home a Victorian, French Country, Traditional, Contemporary or maybe a combination? Be an Interior Designer for the morning! Choose your dream room, add color and style, and enter to have “your room” featured on the Harrell Remodeling Facebook page, along with some other cool prizes! Learn about “SMART” homes – how they work, why they are energy efficient and how the “new” technology is changing the way we design, build and remodel homes. You have heard of construction, but do you know what “deconstruction” is? Take the “smell” test and ask yourself, why do some paints or glues smell and others don’t? (hint…one is good for you and one is not!) What is a “Green Home”, or what is a “Universally Designed Home? “Unearth” the answers to all these questions and learn about how you and your family can take small steps to having a healthier home with better indoor air quality and more energy efficient while looking out for our planet!
You and your friends will take a journey through the world of Design and Building, gain an understanding of what it means to be “Green” and learn about a career in the creative and every changing world of Designers, Architects and Builders!
Each girl will leave with a tote filled with their projects, “tools of the trade” and other goodies to enjoy and share with their friends and family!
