Advanced building tools for roofs, foundations and framing make the design process easy. As you draw walls, the program creates a 3D model. When you place a door or window, it is inserted into the wall and the program automatically updates the framing. When you move walls, the roof and foundation are also updated. Every item you add into the design is included in a list of materials so you can cost estimate and budget your home project.

Remodeling a kitchen or bath? Cabinets are smart objects that snap, bump and form to walls. You will find a large selection of cabinet types. Quickly change colors and styles with the Material Painter to visualize design options.

Chief Architect offers three DIY software products—Suite, Architectural and Pro. Its professional architectural software line offers products for full residential design.

Our 3D Library has thousands of paints, materials and furnishings to make the interior design match your exact needs.

Design your projects in both 2D and 3D! 2D floor plans provide the details of room layout and dimensions, while 3D provides realistic visualization, including virtual tours so you can experience your design before it's built.
