In preparation for hosting this lovely Ballard home’s open house tomorrow, I made a 3D tour for visitors to pass along to friends and family who aren’t able to stop by.
I’ve made about a dozen Matterport 3D tours by now. The process seems tedious: scan, move camera, repeat. But after spending an hour or two seeing the home from dozens of vantage points, I always feel like I’ve gained a deep appreciation for the lives that have been lived – and will be lived – within (and just beyond) its walls.
What I love most about this home is its backyard, which you can access through the kitchen door. Matterport cameras aren’t designed for outdoor use, so the path out there might feel strange and trippy. But once you’re standing on the patio, how can you not imagine sizzling steaks on the grill, chilled wine on the table, children playing on the fort…
I’ll be there from 11am-2pm. Come check it out!
