All the steps below are summarized in a fun printable guide down-loadable below (BBAC-Assembly-Guide.pdf).
The breadboard layout sheet is downloadable from step 2.
Lets get going...
We also sell a kit with all the parts (a breadboard, printed layout sheet, and printed guide) so you can get making right away.
(in the UK Breadboard Arduino Compatible Kit (BBAC))
We like to be as open as we can be at oomlout, in keeping with this attitude all the design files (sketchup models, corel draw layouts, pdfs etc.) can be found at http://www.oomlout.com/BBAC/ (if you feel something is missing or would like a file in a different format drop as a message (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll try and help you out.)

Step 2: The Layout Sheet and Putting Together
Simply print it out, lay it over your breadboard, and start placing components, or follow the step by step Lego style instructions below.
