So while in the midst of designing the boys' bedroom, I came across this FREE design tool by Autodesk. I love using it! Even though the selections are somewhat limited, it still gives me a basic understanding of my space. It also helps me give my dear husband who struggles understanding my inspiration for designs no matter how well I describe them, a tangible visual of what I am trying to accomplish. Several times it has helped pull us from the brink of an avoidable argument. How's that for Awesome?
Because we had to gut the attic after the extensive storm damage, (See blogs: It Could Happen to Anyone and Trying to Play Catch-Up) we reconfigured a couple of areas like the stairwell and closet to make them safer, more efficient, and get them into code. Just building up the floor at a bizarre drop allowed us to push back a wall and add square footage to reduce the overall pieced-together feeling of the space. I am so grateful that this CAD program was available for free..it saved us from many headaches. Hope you enjoy using it as much as I have!
And as a little extra holiday weekend bonus- A fun curation for your Friday viewing pleasure:
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
