- In this video, let's go ahead and build the walls…that go around the toilet room.…To see that, we need to rotate the section plane.…So go to the Styles window, toggle on the…Section Plane and select it, press Q to rotate, and rotate…the section plane around the blue axis 90 degrees,…and then hide it and close Styles.…Let's check out the toilet room over here.…And before we start modeling anything,…let's make a new layer called "Cabinets"…because I am going to approach this…more or less as a cabinet project rather than real walls.…
This is extra thick plywood here that's sturdy…and thin enough to give us enough room left over…in the tiny house for all of the uses that we need.…So let's go ahead and draw a rectangle, press R,…and draw that rectangle right here in the plan,…and then let's press P and pull it up,…seven foot four, enter, triple click on it and press G,…and then press B, and let's assign…the plywood material to it.…
Okay, and now let's go over here and continue.…Type R for rectangle, draw two rectangles,…
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.
