Hi, could do with fairly basic software for doing drawings of property layouts. Does not need to be to scale or have any 3D options. Is there anything out there preferably easy to use, free or not too expensive and that works well? Grateful for any suggestions.

There's a list here and scrolling down a bit shows a quick selection guide.

Have recently downloaded and installed SketchUp.

A bit fiddly at first but I have now designed a 3D sketch showing my new extension and a floor plan as well. Can't believe it's free!
