Pros: Similar to previous versions of Home Designer, very easy to navigate, customer loves the variety of options to design

Cons: There is nothing that I don't like about this program.

Nice program to see final design

Pros: This program is very helpful with building rooms and calculating square footage. Also helpful with giving our clients an idea of what the outcome of their project will look like. And the price is affordable.

Cons: There are not enough options in the catalog. But for the price, we can't expect it to have too many options.

Overall: Affordable product that helps figure out square footage.

Almost all there...

Pros: It's fairly easy to get started with this software. It was also easy to make axon models (renderings) in several 'styles'. I also likes the automatic supply lists.

Cons: It's not easy to get this software to really do the jobs you want. It's always 'almost' there. Renderings are good, being able to manipulate each room a sa room, not part of a house would be a really good thing! It's also a REAL resources hog!! I have a new workstation with oodles of power and it STILL can't seem to get out of it's own way. Customer service is no-existent.

Overall: I bought this software years ago, updated it until 2016. I use it mostly for interiors now, cabinets and remodels. Not sure I would buy this again, I would need to see who is eating their lunch, because CA does not seem to be keeping up
