This article explores the possibility of utilizing a game engine to support the description of construction solutions aimed to self-builders. The results of this experimentation strengthen the hypothesis that game engines would worth to be made a part of the arsenal of resources available to designers for supporting the description of designed objects. In the presented case study, the use of the game engine has allowed the creation of a software application giving users the ability to navigate interactively the construction procedures by choosing the pace of their exploration and their viewpoints during the work phases.
