### Building a House in Sketchup!

1. 1. Building a house? Not a real one a sketchup one!
2. 2. Tricky, Tricky <ul><li>Getting used to sketchup can be tricky </li></ul><ul><li>Before starting I would recommend you have a play with the tools. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure you get used to all the angles, you going to need them! </li></ul>
3. 3. Its got a wall and floor and roof! <ul><li>We need to start somewhere so a good place is the walls. If you need to add furniture into the house I would start with a floor. </li></ul><ul><li>Start with creating a rectangle using the rectangle tool, or pressing R on the keyboard: </li></ul>
4. 4. Extrude – That’s a bit rude? <ul><li>We need to make it longer now to make the basic shape of a house. </li></ul><ul><li>We will use the extrude tool from the menu, or press the P key. </li></ul><ul><li>Drag the face you want to pull and drag it to where you want and let go. </li></ul><ul><li>This will make a prism </li></ul>
5. 5. A roof? <ul><li>We need to make a roof, we are going to make a typical pitched roof! </li></ul><ul><li>Select the tape measure and measure the top line of an end face. </li></ul><ul><li>When you do this it will create a start point an end point and a middle point. We need the middle point to make the roof symetrical. </li></ul>
6. 6. Line it all up <ul><li>Next we need to draw a line from the corner into the air to make a point </li></ul>
7. 7. Bring it down <ul><li>Make another line to make a point in the air. </li></ul><ul><li>The program will fill it in. </li></ul>
8. 8. Time to pull again <ul><li>We now need to use the extrusion tool to pull the roof across the house. </li></ul>
9. 9. Boring… <ul><li>Now we have a boring white box. We need to apply some textures, windows and doors. </li></ul><ul><li>This is the easy part. </li></ul><ul><li>Go to the window menu and select component, the go back and select materials. </li></ul><ul><li>Here you will see a range of things you can put into your sketch </li></ul>
10. 10. Good Luck!
