Designs Software Recommendation
 
I'm a new DIY-er and am gearing up to remodel my upstairs bathroom and simultaneously begin to add a 2nd bathroom. I'm looking for some design software that will help me visualize the plumbing, electrical and finished floor plan.

My basic plan for my current upstairs bathroom is to build a different shower stall, replace the vanity and retile the floor and walls. While I have everything torn out, I'd like to run the plumbing from the current bathroom to an adjacent room in anticipation of adding a 2nd bathroom upstairs. It'll probably be a while before I get everything tidied up from remodeling the current bathroom, and I start in on the 2nd bathroom, but I don't want to tear up the floor or whatever else in the soon-to-be-remodeled bathroom when I do begin. I can see it all in my head and have a few graph-paper sketches, but I need something a little more precise, especially if I opt to farm out the plumbing. So ideally software that would make sure that my plan is viable and that things like toilet offset and other elements are to code would be great.

Thanks,
Alex

Mac or PC? 2D or 3D?
