Looking for something just as a one time thing. I'd like something that easy and almost along the lines of the Sims(the home building part).

I found one that's OS 9 but it really doesn't do what I'd like it to do.


TIA.

But here is a list of CAD (computer aided design) software that you can use on the Mac. http://www.versiontracker.com/php/search.php?mode=basic&action=search&str=cad&plt[]=macosx&x=15&y=9

There is nothing that is simple to use when drawning a house. And if you are trying to draw out your own house, I suggest you let a professional do it. Its more complicated than what I could write out here an not go over the word limit.

Ditto Varmit - architecture's trickier than it looks.

Try checking out SketchUp (I work for them). It's easy enough to learn in the 8 hours they give you for free, and it's Pantherized.

Good luck!
