How can you, as the homeowner, draw up 3D models of your new home or renovation design? So you can be sure you’ve got it right inside a computer BEFORE you commit to building it?

You can learn Sketchup. (Check out https://undercoverarchitect.com/sketchup)

Sketchup is a great piece of software that’s available both as a free and paid version, that enables you to draw you design in three dimensions, generate views and walk-throughs so you can experience it inside the computer before committing to it for your real life, and also generate drawings from.

Clare Le Roy is an interior designer, educator and Mum of 3 boys, and her business is The Little Design Corner.

And she’s also the creator of “Sketchup for Interior Design - Beginners Course”. And now, Clare is an approved training partner for Sketchup.

Clare created this course because she wished it had been around when it had first started her business. It would have saved my hundreds of hours of searching YouTube videos and making lots of mistakes, rather than doing the fun stuff (creating awesome designs!).

This course has been made to help a range of users - the home renovator, designer/decorator or design enthusiast - learn SketchUp quickly and correctly so you can get up and running with it as fast as possible.

In this episode, we talk about how Sketchup works, all the things you can do with it, and how you can simply learn it, and use it for your project.

I hope you enjoy this episode. Listen now.
