Drawing floorplans

Keen to hear if any community members can recommend programs or apps that they use to draw quick and easy floorplans.

It's still pen and paper for us! Lots of photos and measurements, then we have someone prepare a draft on CAD
Sorry I can't suggest an app.

Hi,

Like @2Belindas Pen and paper for me initially, then I use a program called 'Smartdraw' to put everything together.  This program has heaps of templates and you can even insert furniture to see how everything lays out.  This does cost however I am pretty sure you can download a trial version.  Can be a little tricky for first time users but has a very good user guide.

 

I also use this for electrical wiring diagrams and landscaping layouts.

 

@Isobel, that does look good.  I may have a play with that in future.

 

 

 

Cheers'n'beers
