Any Free Architect Programs???
 
Just want to do a fast drawing of my own basement renovation and dont want to spend too much more than I need to.

Thanks in advance

Download Sketchup. It's FREE! Can't beat that.

Nope! I've searched that very question all back through the forum, and it is plain that what you want just does not exist. :whistling2: :no:

(As Andy mentioned) I'd recommend DraftSight. It's a free AutoCAD clone.

I use this one.

simple to use and provides a 3d mockup as well.

Google Sketch Up 8.

Pretty neat for free, but has some learning time if you want to show detail.

As stated...can't get any cheaper than free.

Thanks. I'll try it right now.
