A current trend among builders is the adoption of computer technology to show clients what their future houses will look like. For example, the development team behind Vistamor, a new community in Florida for adults who are 55 years of age or older, utilizes the latest three-dimensional (3-D) computer programs to present potential buyers with a detailed concept of how their home will look.

The create the virtual models, Vistamor recruited a home design architect, interior designer, landscape architect and computer graphic designer. The software allows users to create homes that are detailed down to the fabric on a sofa, or the texture of a wall covering.

The process begins with a computer graphic designer who creates a blank wall design using plans provided by the architect. Then the interior designer decorates the house with furniture, fabrics and lighting from a virtual library of over 200,000 images. To finish the project, designers who specialize in 3-D technology add computerized people into the rooms.

"Today's advanced computer technology allows homebuilders to design houses with greater precision and accuracy, which minimizes costly field changes during the construction process," said Ian Stone, principal of Montgomery Group, which is the developer of Vistamor.

The new software gives buyers a better understanding of what their home will look like when compared to traditional floor plans and blueprints.
