What Our Customers Are Saying About Home Designer Software

Beautiful 3D Rendering

While a hand-drawn and colored rendering can be very beautiful, Home Designer’s 3D renderings can come very close. Minus the angst…when a design change is called for.

And just as importantly, 3D renderings aid homeowners when making important selections. Such as: siding, windows, roofing, cabinetry, fixtures and all exterior and interior finish materials. How disappointing to spend thousands of dollars on a large ticket item to discover that it doesn’t look the way you thought it would…doesn’t fulfill your dream.

This program is SO easily navigable

Any teenager who exhibits the slightest bit of interest in design, blueprints, or construction, NEEDS this program.  It could very well be the avenue to a new beginning for the rest of their life.   

When I found a copy of Home Designer Suite as a young child, my life changed. Chief Architect opened up a world of creativity that I knew I possessed. I felt like a 15-year-old architect.

Now, as a professional photographer, one of my favorite features about Home Designer is that I can add my own photography inside the homes I design – my personal touch. This program is SO easily navigable, that anyone can learn it at their own pace. I had no prior knowledge other than what I taught myself by connecting lines together and building from there.  I am so excited to keep building both homes, and my own creativity! – Thanks to Chief Architect!

Home Designer Suite

I love how easy it is to change wall and flooring colors and material in Home Designer, and laying out tiles on my floor to illustrate how they might look on the shower walls was the perfect “real life” companion to the e-drawing. I surprised myself with how similar the final laundry/bath was to the design.

I have tried using other CAD programs in the past and found them extremely difficult to use. I find Home Designer software to be logical and fairly easy to use. I did quite a bit of research before I first purchased Home Designer and have not ever been sorry…

Home Designer Architectural

Building a log home has enough differences that a simple home designer tool just didn’t cut it. After trying a few different tools I finally found Chief Architect’s Home Designer software and when I put our plans into the Architectural edition it all came together.
