Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Detailing the inside of the slide-out, part of Designing a Tiny House with SketchUp.
- Our next job is to build the interior surfaces…of the Slideout.…Let's turn off a lot of these different Layers,…and orbit around.…So we can build this…by snapping rectangles in the right locations,…and before I start adding Plywood,…we should make a new Layer.…Let's call it Slideout Plywood.…Make it current.…And then click over here on the screen and press R.…
Draw a rectangle, and pull it out 3/4 of an inch.…Triple-click, and press G.…Press B and assign the Plywood material.…And because it's less than eight feet,…we don't have to adjust any of the texture map there.…Now, the floor here could also be Plywood,…or we could leave it with this composite material,…and cover it with carpet or something.…So I'm just going to leave it as it is.…Let's go ahead and press X…to go into X-Ray mode,…so that you can see through your object.…
So this Plywood is starting at the absolute corner,…and we're going to start our other sheet here.…But I'm kind of thinking ahead, and I'm realizing now…that the opposite side needs the same sheet of Plywood,…
In this course, author Scott Onstott shows step-by-step how to build a tiny house, including every virtual stud, sheet of plywood, and appliance going into the project. Along the way, he explores SketchUp features such as components, groups, layers, and textures. By building a house in SketchUp in this detailed manner, you can work out any unforeseen spatial conflicts in the design and virtually eliminate construction problems before you are in the field.
