Looking for design software recommendations
I’m a new member and I’m looking for recommendations for relatively easy-to-use design software (I did try searching the site but didn’t find anything discussing that). My first task will be a simple floor plan so I can ask the good folks here for advice on placing mini-splits. Further down the road, I’d like to be able to draw out details for roof and wall assemblies for the retrofits I hope to do. Any then maybe a tiny house (or at least a tiny shed) in the future.
I’m also curious whether how much use people make of the 3D capabilities a lot of programs have. Sketchup seem like a pretty good package, and I’m wondering if it’s worth the time to learn to draw in 3D.
I also want to say how much I appreciate both the quality of the advice here and, even more, the welcoming tone of the conversations. I’ve gained a healthy respect for how much I don’t know right along with the encouragement to dig in and learn.
