    You can view view 3D buildings in Google Earth desktop application but Google no longer allows people to submit 3D models for inclusion in Google Earth/maps. – Jakub Sisak GeoGraphics Oct 31 '14 at 1:15

The simplest start point is Google SketchUp.


You will find most of the required materials online.
