@kiharajon back in 2002 I did my architecture but ditched it 3 years later to pursue other things. Come 17 years later my mum wanted to build her own house so she naturally came to me I draw for her a house plan. As you are aware back in 2002 we manually drew house plans using those huge Tsquares, Drawing boards etc but in 2019 guyz don’t use those oversized geometrical sets anymore though i know a few guyz still use them. Tasked with such I had to look for a software to draw the house with.
I considered ArchiCAD software but the damn thing was too heavy and too resource intensive for my machine let alone having to learn the ropes as it had advanced quite abit so I resulted to looking for an online software that was simple, easy to learn and achieve the same thing. I browsed through various online drawing sites and Floorplanner met all my expectations with its simplicity and ease of use.
Long story short I drew the house plan and the building is currently at the roofing stage on the ground and here is where the challenge begins. Floorplanner can’t tell me how the roof will look like so it was either i go back to using the geometrical things or look for another software that could and since I was pressed for time, I used Microsoft Excel belive it or not and it came out perfectly. Fundi naye ameover quote the amount of mabatis and mbaos the house will need so I’ve currently halted the project and i’m looking for a software or site that can calculate this ndio nisigongwe. Any help here will be highly appreciated.
