I cannot advise you regarding SketchUp as I only dabbled in it myself. Are you using the free version or the Pro version? No matter which one I would suggest buying the book Google SketchUp by Bonnie Roskers, P.E. It is actually a two volume set consisting of Basic and Advanced Tutorials. It also covers the Windows and Mac OSX. I've got version 6 on my shelf. Unfortunately I've been too preoccupied to really delve into it. By the way, the books cover both the free and Pro versions of the software.

Well Shibu, I usually bring my cleaned up flooplan and elevation into SketchUp and then put each one on it's own layer. I then the elvations up around the plan so I have them as my reference images.
