You can find the Making Of Story which explain the production stages for this scene under tutorials section.

This is a personal scene of a house I saw some time ago on the net. I forgot whose the architect is or name of the house. I thought I saved the image but somehow it is lost when switching between computers and hard disks.
So I made it as I remember.
Texturing was most fun during the project. I tried to create different, unique textures for each wood element. I enjoyed painting different textures in Photoshop.
