When and why do *you* use sketchup?

I used it to layout and map my shop dimensions so I could do some space planning to give me a better idea of how and where to put all my stuff. 

Nice. I actually just started to give this a shot as well. It'll take some time to put together the different components from the garage. But it will definitely help me play with arrangement ideas without moving everything for every idea.

I use sketchup for almost every project I make now.  I really like the program, and it it pretty intuitive to use.

I also like two add-ons: cutlist and a wood texture package.

Like Tom, I have used it for shop layout.  I also have used it for deck design, after modeling my backyard in sketchup.

Oh, I haven't really looking into add-ons. Where do you suggest I read up more about what's out there?
