Help with creating a set of home design blueprints

I have created a 3d design of a home. Now I would like to create a complete set of drawing sheets for a builder. Is there a book or other resource that can show me how to create a complete set of design drawings?

You might have a look at this:

You’ll also need to get SketchUp Pro so you’ll have LayOut to create the documents you need.

I’ll second what @DaveR suggested. Very good book. This one is also a useful guide;


I have also found Brightman’s book extremely useful if what you need is to know how to use LO for presentation drawings. It won’t turn a layman into a professional draftsman though as you need to understand how buildings are constructed and how much a builder needs to know. And a knowledge of local building codes, of course!
