 +At this point, I would like to recommend that you start off making a small room. While large room can look very impressive, it is much more difficult to make them actually look interesting and not empty. What I consider '​small'​ is anything between 2x4 room (smallest possible room with a door) and 12x12.

 +To start building the room, press 6 or go to Static Objects (the lego brick in the left bar menu) and click the drop-down menu above the large white box. This will allow you to choose a base to work with. Personally, I find the mansion and castle bases easiest to work with because they have the largest variety of uses, but choose one that you would like to work with.
