Announcing: The White House in 3D

I have just posted a new page to house the latest addition to the site: Pete Sharkey’s incredible 3D White House. Pete has put untold hours into building a complete and highly detailed and accurate Presidential Park with White House extererior and grounds, giving us the opportunity to view it from perspectives we’ve never had before. Look all around the roof, the grounds, the gardens…. It’s amazing.

For those who remember Pete’s fantastic Oval Office replica, this one is only the exterior, so you can’t peak into Laura Bush’s dressing room.

You’ll need to load Google’s SketchUp or SketchUp Viewer (both free) and download the BIG 20 MB file, or you can just look at the many great images on the page. You can use the tour feature (View>Animation>Play) or click on the page tabs on the top of the opened model to see preset views

Thanks, Pete! For diligence, persistence, and patience in toiling in the basement over a hot oven, I hereby award you the Chef Roland Mesnier Baked Mansion Award (the “Rollie”).

  1. Amazing! Just amazing! Pete has certainly done his homework!

    Think I’ll wait until later this week, when I get my DSL installed, to download the program. Yes, John is dragged, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century. I relly much prefer the 19th, but they didn’t ask me…

  3. Thank you Derek for being gracious enough to host this model for. Thanks! It was my pleasure since modeling in 3D is my hobby.
