I’m a pretty avid fan of Sims 3 and the ‘build’ mode in the game, so I’ve built my house a few different times. I had the basic shape down pretty easy, but it was a little rough getting used to new tools that don’t automatically pop a window right where you want it. However, the customization is so much better! I had a lot of trouble getting roofs to mesh properly with other roofs as well, since they were on different levels. I eventually just gave up trying to fix one part of my roof, but figured that since it was just a simple sketch model it was not as important as it’d be in a different project. I think next time I’ll spend more time tweaking things to look right. I found the SketchUp tutorials online to be super helpful. I just googled “x Sketchup” with a few different phrases for things I struggled with.
