Hey guys,

i just moved into my new apparent and there is a sunny rooftop, its just perfect. The Landlord never finished the work they already installed a door and a ladder..none of the previous tenants cared:) So it has never been used, i spend a few hours there, in constant fear to drop 12 meters.

So I am trying to convince him and the "arrogant" neighbors to give me the permission to put a railing around it and a simple wood floor.

Could you guys give it a try? It shouldn't be TO fancy because it needs to be a realistic as possible = cheap to build.. (He needs to pay it..)

german rules say that the railing has to be 120cm high. I attached 2 high resolution pics and a drawing pdf for you to understand the situation :)
drawing just for the location ignore the railing there :)

i would be very thankful, i tried to do this with paint .. lol hopeless.

if you are around hamburg city, ofc you are invited for a barbecue.. :beerchug:

Greetings
Jan

Hello jeanG
Hope you like it.

I had some difficulty with the perspective in the second image, but added it anyways.
Hope it is good enough to persuade your Landlord.

Steve,
Iam Sam,
Green Maniac,

thank you very much! i really like the floor steve choosed it kinda looks pretty natural. Thanks for the perspektive correction Sam.

Green Maniac, this is crazy :) Could you do a few little tweaks? :)
Would it be possible to add the floor from Steve? or something like that?
Could you replace the black railing with a silver stainless steal one? This is like 99% used in germany, do you guys have black ones? :)
Do you think its 1,20m? The sides are 3,50m in total. It somehow looks a bit tall? :)
i also loved that you did both pics! also the person makes sense!

you guys are such a great help!

this is already very nice don't get me wrong! I just want to create a stunning wow effect, so the other damn neighbors are like wtf, i need that to. There are 8 of this rooftops and german law you maybe heard about it.. every neighbors of this building has to accept my damn railing otherwise i can't make changes on the building.. like putting in 20 screws -_- :D

Oke, this is my second attempt on the roof :) Think it's better then the first

very thankful for your work guys, i mean its pretty unusual to get help for free these days

so my situation just went complicated. In order to get the permission i have to do a presentation in front of 28 landlords - lol.
They expect that the rooftop is making the whole building ugly - it isn't that pretty to be honest, god..

So i have to use the same kind of railing they used for their stuff. I have to "make an offer they can't refuse" quote:the godfather.
i did a walk and made some pics.

attached a pic of balconys next to my rooftop and some closer pics of those railings...

Could you try to implement this kind of railing into the pics... i know this is pretty much to ask for, but those are germans u know haha:banghead:

Let me know of any other changes you want.

To answer your questions:
Yes
Yes
Yes and yes, we here in Namibia tend to paint our railings black, but is not necessarily the norm. :)
Yes, according to the measurements you provided. I made Steve slightly taller now to make railings look smaller. He is now 1,79m tall.
Thanks :)

ah.. been to nam last year. good friend of mine is living in windhoek, family name rix :)

- cool man thanks for that. Can you adjust the color of the railing? more like the railing below? :)
- could you try to make the overall look a bit more sunny? ;)
- can i have on version with guy steve and one without ? :)

- would it be possile for you to add the railing to the 2 other pics, as well? you can see the below railing there too, its exactly this tall.
just to show the neighbors what i would look like from the street.. it is important to make it look as much inconspicious as possible :D

i owe you somthing man

-Yes. Hope it is to your liking.
- I only made the model more sunny, not the images you provided. Unfortunately I do not have the time for that at present. Maybe someone else can take it from here?
-Steve feels sad that you don't want him in your pics.
-Yes. Unfortunately it might not be as accurate as you would like. As mentioned above, little time. Could only do a quick job.

Now lets talk about what you owe me. Because I do not see myself in Germany in the near future, as payment you have to begin all messages/posts in PhotoshopGurus website with "All hail GreenManiac!" regardless whether it is related to this post or not.
