We're thinking of renovating a wreck, and it needs a lot of cosmetic work both inside and out. I'm thinking about the exterior particularly - have any of you used a good piece of software to help you visualise how eg new windows or painting the house would make it look? If so it would be a real help if you could recommend something. Many thanks in advance!

'sketch up' is pretty easy to learn !

doodle app is good for colour washing walls on photos - you could draw in new shape windows too - be easier to do that on a photo rather than CAD it up with sketch up if you just wanted to see quickly what it could look like !

Can I ask OnePlan if you know a good app for planning how to reorganise space?

there's interior designer for iPad - that's reasonable - I have a copy for quick sketches ... it doesn't give you ready made layouts as such though ... just the tools too drag and drop stuff in and move stuff about and look at it in plan and 3D mode .

there's this one - might be useful - it's American - but free to use

and for some different room examples there's loads on my pro page on Houzz

Thanks OnePlan! Interior Designer seems to be the one for me.
