to be of interest. This is a paid subscription site most
useful for its planning
and home design downloads. The site also includes template
floor plans for many of our houses. Once you have the compatible
these templates allow you to edit a floor plan and rearrang walls,
doors and windows. You can test furniture, lay out a new kitchen and
make a custom electrical plan. You can view your
layout in 3D and then print out scaled floor plans that can be pasted
into the pages of your blueprint structural plans. See more HERE.
