Designer Bootcamp: Google SketchUp for kitchen and bath design

On May 26th, the great gang from Igloo Studios is taking their show on the road and they're coming to Orlando to teach a kitchen and bath design-specific course in Google SketchUp. On their way to Orlando, they're stopping in St. Pete to pick up me so I can help to teach this seminar.

We've been working on this for quite a while and the curriculum for the Designer Bootcamp is both Google- and NKBA-endorsed. We're offering 18 hours of instruction and the time you spend at the bootcamp qualifies for CEUs and educational hours. If that weren't enough, Google's offering a $100 off coupon for all registrants and your paid tuition includes a 1-month subscription to the Go-To-School SketchUp training website.

We have designers flying in from all over the country and as an industry function, our class days will be broken up with showroom tours, appliance demonstrations and a cooking theater presentation. We'll even feed you breakfast and lunch every day.

This is hands-on instruction with a heavy emphasis on practical uses for SketchUp and by the time the 28th runs around, you'll be a capable and confident user of a design tool that's revolutionized the way I do my job. To make matters even better, you'll be taught by Mike Tadros, the man who taught me most of what I know about this amazing software. Did I mention that I'm teaching this class too?

We'll be promoting this Bootcamp pretty heavily at KBIS next week and you can register through Igoo Sudios' website. Don't be left out!


  1. Hello Paul, the link for registration is not working. Thought you should know.


  2. Thanks for the heads up Marilyn, let me get to the bottom of it.

  3. Woo-hoo! Way to go Paul. I wish I could fly out for this, I could use more insight with Sketch Up. I love how intuitive Sketch Up is.

  4. LA's on the short list of cities to host one of these boot camps so stay tuned Laurie.

  5. Lordy, I wish! The Husband does all our sketchup work, since that program confuses the $%^* out of me. But seriously, I need to know how to use it.

  6. It's not so daunting, really. It's actually really intuitive it's just that it doesn't work like any other rendering program out there.

  7. Yea Paul! So bummed I can't make it :(

  8. We'll end up in Austin one of these days Adrienne...


Talk to me!
