Houston, TX, US
I'm a Construction Manager and GC in single family residential construction. A love of woodworking from a young age got me into the design, fabrication and installation of the kitchens in the majority of homes we build. I've used various CAD programs for many years before trying SketchUp about six years ago. After a few fits and starts, I came to fully appreciate the elegant simplicity with which the program adapts the manipulation of "edges and surfaces" to woodworking projects. I've also become a fan of the ease with which it allows my clients to become part of the design process ... no third party viewers necessary, and, by using screen capture software and taking advantage of technology like youtube, most of them can be involved in that process instantly from smart phones and other devices.
