Lame title, eh? LOL
I have been hesitant about uploading my work because there are some mighty good artists wandering around in this warehouse. But I decided to go ahead and do it to show other non-professional users (who are just having fun - like me) that a lot can be done with Sketchup using only the native tools - I personally cannot afford to buy some of the plug-ins I would love to have. The only downloads I've made are materials/textures. I am still using Google Sketchup 8. Using only the native tools also makes for a good challenge if you are creating something that is very detailed or has a lot of curves in it. I also do not use photo matching.
Unfortunately, in order to bring this 2-story house with basement and attic to the 3D Warehouse, I had to strip the inside - the 1st & 2nd floors were FULLY furnished. There was also a street on two sides, to go with the gutterline and sidewalk. I also removed the fog and the 11 scenes I created before I realized that the scenes made no difference in the file size (I created 9 new scenes). Before finding out that the house was a bit over 98MB fully furnished, I had wanted to put flowers in all the window boxes. As a result, all those things I created without plug-ins (pillows, items with curves and complex shapes, etc) aren't in the house to showcase the things that can be done with just the native tools. Some furniture was built by following the instruction of YouTubers, some was created from my own imagination, some was modelled after items in my and my mother's respective houses. I modelled appliances after actual items by googling images of them.
I hope even some of you experts out there can find something good about my creation. My next project will be to learn how in the heck people make mult-storied houses and detailed mansions (even if sparsely furnished) and end up with files that are in some cases 10 times smaller than what I create.
