I'm working on it - I'm taking some good measurements today.

If you guys are interested, I just uploaded a sketchup file of my home. (1.6MByte) It is still a work in progress but close to 85% done. Enjoy. :D

After hearing about it for years I finally decided to try it out about a year back, the short learning curve is unbelievable. Haven't bought any books but the Aidan Chopra videos on youtube have served me quite well. I only recently found out about rendering engines and can't wait to try one out.

62P&K:

Podium was the renderer I was considering, are you pretty happy with it?

I'll post a screenshot or two of my latest model in progress, I just built a screenblock wall; SketchUp rules!

glad to find this thread. i started experimenting with sketchup about 6 months ago and really enjoy it. as a metal sculptor/fabricator it's been useful to me for quickly generating concept designs for customers. i agree that there is a learning curve. i never consulted a book but the videos on youtube were a big help to me.

here are some screenshots of different houses of varying levels of completion i've been drawing:
Image
a small house.
Image
a beach house.
Image
living, dining, kitchen, and entry of a terraced, steel frame house. this large, butterfly design incorporates a drive-thru carport and artist studio/second unit on the far side. the "dream house".
Image
another small house with an artist studio or workshop up front.
