Easy to use. Simple. Precise in drawing walls. Prompt help when needed. The ability to save drawing in different formats. Low Price.
No 3D. Graphics are not impressing.

In comparison to other software on the market, this seemed a bit under the standard, however, as it was $35 (instead of the $120+ of other software) I decided to give it a try.

At first I wasn't too impressed by the graphics, and the lack of sunlight simulation available on more expensive/advanced softwares (but then again, this software is simply 2D).

However, the preciseness obtained by drawing the walls on scale was quite impressing. Unlike other softwares, one can create outer and inner walls without worrying of the wall's thickness "eating" on your rooms measurements.

Last, but not least, the ability to save in JPG, and other formats, is a pro which allows one to move drawings from one computer to the other without the need to install the software. That allowed me to work on the project at work, and show it to my wife at home.

One thing worth mentioning, was the prompt response obtained from the online help.


This software is highly recommended for the home user restructuring or planning his/her own house. However, a professional user couldn't use this product as it doesn't have 3D representations or any advanced options which offer detailed representations.
