Focused SketchUp

Focused SketchUp


The FOCUSED Sketchup training course was amazing! I am a beginner with Sketchup, meaning I have never even opened the program or saw any part of it prior to this course. And I am now walking away with the power to create designs for my clients, which will only enhance my small business.

John has detailed every aspect of the installation, setup and overall guidance for how to get started and create designs for my interior design clients. I am an Apple user, and even though the course is set up through a PC John makes it super easy to install and setup even on a Mac!

I feel so confident with what I was taught during the course, and will continue to grow my skills and knowledge through trial and error. I can’t wait to start implementing my learnings and take it to my clients!

FOCUSED SketchUp is an online course tailored to Interior Designers that need to learn SketchUp!


If you receive the FOCUSED Friday Newsletter, you know that I mentioned these giant skeletons a few weeks ago. Saw this picture and had to share - can we give them activities to do year round?!?

SketchUp vs. Reality! This dining room was modeled in SketchUp before any work began - the final results are pretty close to the model!

Learn to create interior models like this in our FOCUSED SketchUp for Interior Designers course!



In honor of Amazon Prime day, here is a collection of Alexa products from the SketchUp 3-D Warehouse!

I have these saved in my component library in SketchUp so that I can easily drop them into my spaces when needed. If you want to download these for free and put them in your component library, click here:

Can you imagine having coffee in this breakfast room and taking in the view from this beautiful picture frame window? This room belongs to Deana at and I helped her render the design using my FOCUSED SketchUp process!

In the course, I demonstrate how to make framed pictures like these by pulling images from the web and adding them as textures. I also give you my secrets on how to freelance custom objects (like this chandelier) so you don't waste your time on the fine details.

One feature of FOCUSED SketchUp that is unique from other courses is that I’m working alongside you through every lesson! You will not only see my screen and what I’m doing, but you will also see me in the lower left corner of each lesson. It’s like private, one-on-one instruction as we navigate through the modules. 👍

Panel/molding design is one of my favorite uses for SketchUp - tinkering with layouts, widths, molding types, etc. in a virtual environment before construction begins is not only smart, but can save a lot of time and frustration down the road!

In FOCUSED SketchUp for Interior Design, I cover my favorite extension for adding trim and molding - it's saved me a ton of time!

Photorealistic rendering is something a LOT of online SketchUp courses don't cover, which is really surprising given that most clients these days expect some sort of 3-D presentation of their design.

FOCUSED SketchUp covers the basics of photorealistic rendering (not everything, because the V-Ray rendering engine is extremely complex and this course is FOCUSED on giving you just what you need to know). 💪

This was the first bathroom I ever rendered for a client and let me tell you, it took waaaay longer than I anticipated! But it taught me a great deal about lighting techniques in , using section cuts to slice my model, and creating a custom, seamless texture for the floor (the client had a very specific pattern that I had to create in Photoshop).

These are all skills that I teach in my FOCUSED SketchUp course that is launching in just a few weeks! 😎

This course is FOCUSED on teaching Interior Designers exactly what they need to know in SketchUp and V-Ray (and not the other fluff) to quickly create amazing photorealistic 3-D renders. 📸
