I first want to thank the experienced Sketchup users on this Forum for helping us to install the House Builder plug-in to Sketchup. It was really frustrating at first but you pros made it work for us.
We are building a Tiny House for ourselves so we needed to be able to use Sketchup for our plans for the Tiny House. We have a YouTube Channel “The Zero Energy Channel” showing our progress on the Tiny House (which will use zero energy from fossil fuels), so since the Sketchup program and the House Builder Plug-in were so useful, we have posted two YouTube tutorials that are very much for beginners to Sketchup:
“Using Sketchup Part I: What Do Those Buttons DO?” This video addresses the disorientation most beginners feel when first sitting down to the Sketchup screen which looks at first like “the controls to an alien spaceship”. Link is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiIBJ0yHzZ8
“How to Use Sketchup Part II: Installing & Using House Builder Plug In” This video shows off some of the House Builder tools in a slow and layperson-friendly way, and also links to the Forum discussion where you folks helped us figure out how to install House Builder. Its link is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gdqDbh9HfA
So thanks again and hopefully these new layperson-friendly tutorials will help expand the Sketchup community.
