    Hello

    Is there any recomendations for House plan software?

    Floor plans but also the outside plans, front on, side on etc.

    I did try google's version a while back but did not get on well with it.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you find any that are easy to use, let me know!
    I've tried several over the years and (perhaps I'm just thick) can never seem to achieve anything.
    Usually resort to pen & paper.

    3D CAD software is hard work, whatever you use

    I'd persevere with Google Sketchup. A friend said to me today that he had never looked at the Sketchup instructional videos before but that they made everything a lot easier. He is trying it again after not getting on with it at first

    ^ I've done just that and installed version 8 although downgraded to version 7 as the other was limited to 30day trial?

    Will stick with it and see what I get.....

    AFAIK the base version is free and the Pro version is not. I am using 8.xx on my Mac and that was free
