You are in luck now Eric. For the next 40 days one of the best programs
professional architects work with - DataCAD - is on sale (from its usual
$3000 price) there is the DataCAD Professional for $ 150, which includes
the programming language, photorealistic renderer, and 17 meg of
architectural symbols, which is the deal of the decade, but, for you, I
would suggest the DataCAD starter, which, also only until Feb. 28th 1994
will be only $49, which makes it cheaper than many of those "design your
own home" type programs.
You didn't say what hardware you are using. If you are using a
Macintosh, let me know, I may have another suggestion.
