I am glad I didn't read the reviews before buying! Posted by: from: MONTEREY, CA on I bought this product never having used a design software successfully in my life. I bought the Punch software about 4 years ago and hated it. Within a week of having this software, I already had 8 different house designs constructed from scratch and was able to view them in 3-D. An EXCELLENT beginner software!!!!

Hard to use Posted by: from: on We are remodeling. We're changing roof lines and walls with big addition. I think it would of been easier to use if we weren't making such large changes. Way to time consuming.

Contractor designing my own house remodel-finally Posted by: from: Riverside, CA on I needed a good program that was not too difficult to learn and use quickly. I'm redoing rooms, taking down walls and wanted a design program that would give me the basics. The HGTV Design package with landscaping is just right. Probably a few more bells and whistles than I ready need but better more than not enough. Fair to middle learning curve but once you get the basics, it is easier to design with.

Not for the beginner! Posted by: from: on Thought this would be a lot easier to use. Had bought a house to flip and thought this would help. Much to difficult to use, the book with it is 3 inches thick. You better have lots of time to read to figure this out!

Not for beginners Posted by: from: VA on You're not going to be designing rooms and projects with this right out of the box. I played with it for a week and still wasn't getting anything done. The manual and online help are useless, had no luck reaching customer support either. I hope the refund process works, because nothing else does.

Comprehensive but difficult to learn Posted by: from: on Program took a lot of trial and error to get to work, but once I figured it out it was nice. Not fully what I was hoping for with visuals, but better than many of the alternatives

Couldnt get the bar in. Posted by: from: Aurora, CO on Took awhile to get it figured out all the way, and once I did, we designed our entire house and its going to an archetec. The only drawback was we couldn't get the bar in the drawing.

The program is ok, the downloads are better. Posted by: from: on I purchased this program to assist my remodeling the kitchen. I expected a little bit more from this program. I have nothing to compare this program to, but I thought it would be a little more intuitive to design a room. You definitely need to read the manual and go through the exercises. The included appliances and furniture, etc are ok but you can download specific products which look much better. And the downloads are free to download and use. I would recommend it to anyone who is willing to spend hours going through the exercises and reading the manual.
