How did I spend a whole day not budging from the computer? My new favorite *free* program, SketchUp, lets even the most absent minded architect-wanna-be's create their own dwelling designs. You can even download furniture, add components, landscape, and then put your finished sketch into Google Earth in an actual location. Pretty neat huh? OK, now I gotta get back to my dream house designs!
Google SketchUp is software that you can use to create, modify and share 3D models.
