I’ve not had as much time as I would’ve liked but I’m still plugging away with my house modelling in SketchUp. The timber framing for the lower floor is almost complete. It’s interesting how many measurements I’ve managed to stuff up without realising it. It’s not until you start intersecting things that some of the mistakes become obvious. Additionally, because SketchUp makes it so easy to reference off of other points, a mistake can be quickly exaserbated.
Things left to do to sort out the ground floor:
- Break the window studs
- Lower the brick fascade
- Add the decking joists (they’ll fill in the gap of the first floor timbers)
- Fill the joists with nogs
- Get the beam height right for once! (the joists sit on it, not go through it)
