Here is just a small sampling of some images of SketchUp drawings.

I was familiar with Sketchup but had no idea it was so powerfull with framing. Part of what I was looking for though was almost a simplistic program that allows you to drag and drop 2x4's or 2x12's and then just modify lengths.. almost intentionally built for making frames.

That was what I was looking for, but combined with Archicad and the plugin its a little out of my price range for a one time use.

I'll check out Sketchup more indepth!
