Floorplan Design Program?

Post by Michael » Mon Jul 25, 2011 11:58 am

Does anybody know of a simple floorplan design program online? I know there have been some good looking designs on here. I'm looking for something to sketch out my own version of the Clue Mansion for a story I'm working on.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

floorplanner.com is good. We used it in a design class I took once, and it was pretty easy to learn.

Yep Floorplanner is by far the best free software. But for priced one's I use SmartDraw. It has a few more options, but everything is seemingly more "Blueprint" than Clue Board.

Then of course, many things can be done with MS Paint, given patience and time.

Of which in my old age I'm finding that I have neither.

I've been using floorplanner.com and just started over for the i-dont-know-how-manyth time. But I'm starting to get the hang of it. This is fun.
