Whether you are a first-time renovator or a professional, you'll have a vision for transforming a home or office. However, it is difficult to accurately share that vision with architects, designers, and contractors. Even getting bids is a tedious process as you take time away from work to wait for professionals to measure the space, review the project and then wait several days to receive a preliminary cost estimate. Imagine taking pictures or a short video of the space you want to renovate and within a day having a smart 3D model that allows you to start exploring the opportunities of your renovation. With the Hosta model, you can change the furniture, or you could be more adventurous and explore the possibilities of moving the walls or putting in a new window.
It's easy to get access to your smart 3d model from your phone or on the web.
