Build your own house - for free!!

OK, it's not quite as exciting as that might sound, but I came across a real gem of a program yesterday, and the best bit is that it's free!! Within about five minutes, I managed to build a new house...




Now that not might look like your idea of a dream house (nor mine), but considering that it took less than five minutes to build, it's not bad!! You can whizz it around, zoom in and out, and go for a walk around inside.

All of this was done with Google SketchUp, a 3D modelling program distributed by Google. Although there is a posh version that costs, the basic version is free, and very easy to use. It's about 19Mb to download, but well worth it. You can build all sorts of wacky and wonderful things, not just houses. I have made a start on a model of the Beis Hamikdosh (which is how I came across this in the first place), but I reckon that would take rather longer.

Download it and have a play, it's a great toy!!
