Sweet Home 3D is a freeware application that can be used to design 3D models of rooms and houses. The program is somewhat limited compared with some commerce applications. For example, you cn't directly design a multistory home in the program. However, you can use the program to create separate files for each floor of the home. The process for doing this is simple.

    Select the "Create Floor" tool from the top. Click on the top view to where you want one edge of the foundation. Continue clicking to add all the corners. The tool shows the length of a line as well as the angles. It also shows when two lines are lining up by displaying a dotted line between them.

    Go to the folders on the left and drag into the house the furnishings you want. In the panel on the lower left you will see a list of the items you have added. You can double-click on any of these to bring up a dialogue to change attributes such as size and colour.

    Select "File" from the menu and choose "Save." In the dialogue, name your file and save it. Repeat this process to design the second floor of the house.
