I’m a builder and I’m looking for a drafting program that I can use for basic house design. I have been considering a program called Chief Architect 8.0. So far, all I have to base a decision on is their website advertising. Not, in my opinion, the only suggestions I should take before dumping $1500 into a purchase. Does anyone out there have experience with this program or with other programs I might check into? Or else know of a disinterested third party’s review of similiar programs? I’m not really interested in CAD because I don’t want to take all the classes. Chief architect looks easier to use and also does 3D modeling for the client’s virtual walk-through. Those are features that I really like. So, is it a good buy, or a bunch of hooey? Your input is sincerely appreciated.
