Home Design Studio - Design your next home at home!
Authored by: cboyce on Feb 13, '07 06:24:30PM

I'm with you-- this is a lot of stuff for $149. I got mine for $125 from Amazon after seeing the product at Macworld SF. the guy demonstrating it said they basicaly took all of the PC programs and rolled them into one for the Mac. I've drawn my living room, my office, my patio, etc. in about 30 minutes each-- it's ALMOST as easy as MacDraw. And it's 3D. Sketchup is nice too but isn't at all like Home Design Studio. For starters, Sketcup takes talent/practice/ability, and Home Design studio does not, though of course it's better if you do have talent and practice etc.

There are a couple of rough edges on the program (for example, when you drag a color swatch to the 3D view you don't see anything attached to the cursor, nor is it clear just which object you are going to apply the swatch to) but the program is very usable as it is. Fast too. I enthusiastically recommend it.
