Event Description

Would you like to be able to find the volume of a house with a multi-pitched roof for all of your home energy ratings without the need to calculate a single algebraic formula? Or, how about wall area? Window area? Square footage of the whole building envelope?

Well, with Google's free SketchUp software, you can do all that and more. Energy Vanguard's architect and design team leader, Chris Laumer-Giddens, will take you through the basics in this one day class.
