In this video tutorial I show how useful SketchUp’s Solid Tools (especially the Trim tool) are when modeling a log house. The process as shown here makes it easy to create clean log overlaps and door/window cutouts. Of course, the log portion of this is just an example – you can use the technique for much more than that.

Note: I am not showing the entire modeling process here, just the basic principles based on two walls. You can easily expand this to other walls and windows, etc.

Did you design your own log house this way? Let me know below in the comments.
