Sorry that I have been asking so many questions lately!

Any suggestions for free software to make a simple 2D floor plan? --47.41.xxx.xxx

You can use Microsoft Visio.. (expensive software).

The question is really, is it necessary? I did that many years ago, little value did it add to marketing the apt.. Its nice to have and you have all the measurements.. mainly for your own benefit I would say.. --71.232.xxx.xxx

There are websites out there with THOUSANDS of floor plans. I wouldn't waste money reinventing the wheel by buying software to create my own. --50.32.xxx.xxx

I have drawn several floor plans using Microsoft Excel. I use the cell border feature. It's kind of slow and doesn't look as good as Visio can do. --131.201.xxx.xx

I like Visio. Very easy to use and I find the floor plans valuable. They facilitate communication, work well to accurately mark where notes are applicable, and help when considering remodel --24.217.xx.xxx

I can't help you with the floor plan software but just wanted to say don't worry about asking questions. It is how we learn and this is a good place to ask. --73.120.xx.xxx

Before you will spend money on any software - check your library. They might have it for free with a library card. --74.90.xx.xxx

I love sketchup it is free to use non-professionally. There are many tutorials on you tube. It has dimensioning and many other powerful features. There is a online library of user created models. --68.60.xxx.xx

I've used Floorplanner. It's a little clunky, but once you figure it out it's pretty quick. --204.210.xxx.xxx

The analog method is to use the kitchen layout guide from the box store. It's also easy to create a 1:12 scale model in cardboard. Just convert the actual feet measurements into inches and cut out the room. U can find scale models of common furniture to move around too. --99.203.xx.xx

DH recently turned out a decent one for us for a new place - they really help when you have really small places like us! You can SAY "Tiny House" and you can state square footage, but until people can visualize it either in person or via a floor plan, they don't get it.

For our larger places, like our 2-bed/1.5-bath/2-story townhouses, they are surprised by how much larger than are than what you'd normally expect (bedrooms are huge.) So we need to get some floor plans done for them too.

We just include them as the last picture in the ad.

He used free software I think. I'll get the info ASAP. --184.188.xxx.xx

DH says it's free and that's the best he can say. Not comprehensive by any means. But depending on what you want, it's...free. --184.188.xxx.xx

Thanks, all. WMH, I am going to be listing my small place and I think a floor plan might help. When I tell people the square footage, they ask "how big is that?" LOL! I am hoping that a floor plan will weed out the people who need more space. --47.41.xxx.xxx

Exactly, WI/WI. That was our issue as well. We say Tiny We say Small we give dimensions but until they can SEE it, they don't know. So the floor plan DOES help I think but not enough for us to pay for a real program, apparently. ;) --50.82.xxx.xx
