- In this video we're going to lay out the studs…which rest on top of the base plates.…So open the Tiny House 2 and zoom into this corner.…Now, the template that I've provided on the floor plan…is obscured by the base plates.…So there's a couple of different ways…that you can access that.…One, you can press x to go into X-ray mode…and that allows you to see through…the geometry to what is below it.…Another method is to go back into the normal mode…by pressing x, and then select…this base plate and hide it by pressing h.…
And that way we can see the template very clearly.…So, I'm going to orbit around and create…a two by four with the rectangle tool.…I'll start over here and click it over here.…You need to orbit to see that flickering happen…which represents that new surface.…Now, are we sure that's a two by four?…Let's find out, let's measure it with a tape.…You can press t or click the tape measure icon…and click here and then hover the mouse…over this point and it will say one and a half inches.…
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.
