While I wait to move into my new house, I’ve been trying to visualize some re-modeling for the new digs. I created floor plans with Microsoft Visio, but it’ll cost you and it’s only good for 2 dimensions. A while back, Google released a free 3D drawing software called Sketchup. The pro version will cost you some green, but Sketchup is free – and it’s really, really easy to learn. Even though I was missing a few critical dimensions, I managed to create this model in about 15 minutes of messing around.
You can download Sketchup here. Trust me, it’s definitely worth the time to do the short tutorial that comes with the software.
