Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Building the wall, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details (2015).
- So in order to build our wall,…we need to put it on something.…Usually we'd have some sort of foundation.…In this case, there's not a huge amount…of weight going on this…so we'll put a simple strip foundation in.…Now this is 150 mil deep,…and it's 650 mil wide.…This gives about 150 mil, or six inches,…either side of the brick and the block.…This length, we've got about three and a half meters…I think,…and this side,…with a tape measure.…Let's look at that.…
That's about one five six six,…it's just a random length…based on the number of bricks we've got.…One two three four five six seven bricks that way,…and about 11 or 12 bricks this way.…It's say it's not 100% important…to copy the exact number of bricks,…but as long as we can show…sort of this window opening,…and then revealing the insulation…and the cavity fill at the bottom,…that will be absolutely fine.…So, we're looking at 150 by 650,…and three and a half meters, and about 1500 mil…going the other direction.…
So we're now in Chapter 2-03 Building the wall.…My components are all ready for me…
