Thanks Willie, I use S/U infrequently, as I'm a pencil guy, but, hey, we have to adapt, right?

Ok Willie, I have never used sketch up before nor heard of it. I have used auto cad and soft plan in the past and find this program very easy to use. The tutorials were great and very easy to follow. I only watched 3 parts of the tutorials and I was just wondering does this program show bricks, plumbing, shingles, stud placement etc…
I thank you for providing this program/tutorial.

You'll never go back. I used to grab a pencil all the time, now I just turn on the computer.

Yes, yes, and yes.... and much more. It will build a whole framed house and roof for you or a full staircase with the touch of only a few keys and a couple of mouse clicks.

Yes. Absolutely free. They have a version you can pay, I think, about $400 for, but this free one does all most anyone will ever need.... easily 95% of what the paid version does.

I'm a fan if sketch up. Been playing with it occasionally since it came out years ago. It's a great 3d tool that's very easy to learn. One thing I wish it can do is 2d floor plans. sketch up is not well suited for that, though it can be done.
