Default So I'm going to build a program....

Good day again,

Here I am yet again requiring your help .

The situation is as follows: My father needs use a program to simulate building a house, quite alike to the "The Sims"-House building, but not as detailed, just walls, windows and maybe stairs.
Since I also did his Page, he asked me if I'd like to make one.
Although I have some little experience in coding (Ok,who am I trying to fool, I have yet to work at something deeper than pascal, but I think I have at least a basic grasp at how things work,and I am eager to learn), I have not nearly enough expertise to code such a thing from scratch.

So I ask you: Is there some kind of software available that gives you some kind of a raw structure that you could use to your desires?
Preferably it'd need to include 3D-Output, but maybe 2D-graphics could suffice either.

Thanks in advance.

Wow, you guys deliver fast

But I'm afraid I didn't specify enough in my first post.

We need the software to be very easy-to use since it is going to be used by people without any knowledge.
It will be used for my for my fathers clients so that they can present their idea of their house.
Furthermore, since we'll probable give this software out to them, it'd be best if we don't have to worry about copyright-issues, so it'd be best if I more or less made it myself via some kind of editor.

If its free, it should not matter. Download it, and read the text when installing to see what the terms are. If you dont know HOW to write a program, do a GUI, etc, then I think it would be very hard for you. Also, for writing programs, I think Linux has a C++ program that people can use to write programs. Just letting you know, so if you really are serious, you have somewhere to go. My knowledge of this topic are little, but my skills with CAD are not. CAD programs are very reliable, can import/export to different file types, are pretty simple once you learn the interface, and it is just a really sweet program. Go to your local library, pick up a book on it, and start cracking. Good luck.
