    House plan software

    Has anyone had any experience with home plan drawing software that would work well in 8.10?

    Kitchen and bathroom to be specific here in the western US.

    Thanks in advance. Bob.

    You could try Google Sketchup, but there is no guarantee that it will work, considering it must be executed by wine. It works for me, but didn't work for my friend.

    I tried that on a Windows machine and didn't much care for it.

    Thanks though.

    Hi bob

    QCaD is in the repositories, but its a full blown CAD like AutoCAD.

    I haven't found one a little easier yet that would be more like AutoSketch.

    I had a very old program called 123HOUSE for Doze 3.11 that was so simple a child could use it. Unfortunately the floppy was locked and couldn't be copied or backed up and like most small floppies, it died in short order. While most of my larger floppies 5-1/4 are still in perfect shape, even the ones I notched to use the backside of. Ah the good ole daze, hi hi........

    Thanks i will have a look.

    Though it sounds as if it is a little too heavy.

    Thanks.

    I came across this a long time ago and went searching for it again. It may or may not be what you want:
