    Model Entry Gate Far Away From Main Model

    Not sure how to title it, but here's the question:

    I'm starting a 20K s.f. house. The entry gate is going to look like a porte-co, and is located about 4000 feet away from the house.

    So, do I model it in a separate project, or just off to the side somewhere in the main model?

    Are you sure? The gate is 4000 feet away from the house?! That is 3/4 of a mile, or 1.21 kilometers. Sounds like the ranch of Bonanza. If that is the case, just handle that in a separate model. Otherwise the gate is going to be bothering you all the time in all your views. On the site plan, provide a schematic location of the gate, and a note, indicating where the drawings for that part of the project can be found.

      :laugh: That's exactly what it is. They have almost 5000 acres and this is going on top of the hill overlooking it all. Separate model it is, then. Thanks Alf.

        Yep, separate models. You could model the entrance in the Site Model and link the house in there. Then you can create a site plan with both elements fully modeled but you won't have to deal with the entrance in your residential model.

          I have a friend who lives in Templeton, CA (wine country) whose gate is 6.2 miles from his front door. And it's a beautiful drive through Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards It's hard to believe but there are still wide open Bonanza type spaces here. Btw, IIRC Bonanza was filmed in NV?? Lots of wide open but not to inviting spaces there!

            That's a drag if you're the guy responsible for picking up the newspaper every morning...

              I doubt that they even deliver a newspaper to where he lives. But it makes you think...what if you are a UPS driver and you arrive at your delivery address and not know that you still have 12.4 miles to go

                Hmm... a Lube Station on 5000 acres and a 3/4 mile driveway... ? Interesting

                  It's for really really long trucks. :laugh:

                  I sometimes get to do things other than lube centers and car washes, Mr. Munkholm.
                  Give me about a month or so and I'll be posting what Alf has dubbed the "Bonanza Ranch". It will be my largest Revit project to date. I can't wait!

                    I actually live only about an hour from the Ponderosa Ranch. It used to be a place you could visit but they closed it several years ago.

                    If you want wide open spaces. When I moved to Montana, we picked up one of those real estate magazines. One add has 1.2 Million acres for sale. Thats almost 100 sq miles. Description said. 2 mountian ranges, river, valleys... barn. I think it was $100 per acre too....
