Deck Designing Software

Hi Guys, Looking to build an 18x10 deck on the back of the house.

Im looking for a good software program that will design and layout the joist, ledger, railings, etc. Im not looking for a program that will put pretty little plants on the deck lol, but more of a cad style.

I tried Big Hammer but found it limited in the amount it does.

Any other suggestions?

Might try the one on the TimberTech web site, it's free.
I use the Big Hammer one all the time, what do you find wrong with it?

Thanks Joecaption but for me the Big hammer is limited such as the number of footings, and size. Also it doesn't allow me to design the deck with a 1.5' canter-lever beyond the beam.
