Product Description

Visual Building Basic is a low cost but multi featured home design tool to suit those on a low budget, but still wish to achieve high quality design and visualisation tasks. Unlike many generic CAD applications, Visual Building Basic has been specifically designed to allow you to resolve many design problems associated with the design of buildings - residential, commercial, industrial and even agricultural. Visual Building Basic uses the same software technology used by professionals and is 100% compatible with Visual Building Professional and Visual Building Solar Designer. Visual Building Basic is suitable for use by many types of users: architects, builders, self-builders, property developers, interior designers, planners, real estate, and property agents. The Project Start Wizard will quickly get you started and also interfaces you with online tutorial videos and example projects. Draw your plan in 2D and instantly visualize it in 3D. Your 2D floor plans are quickly constructed placing walls into place, either on a grid on relative to existing walls or other features. Dimensions can be in feet / inches or metric. Doors and Windows are then selected from the catalogue and dropped into place. Add your stairs, allowing you to design multiple floors, including attics and basements. Design a roof with the comprehensive roof designer. Decorate your design, applying carpets tiles and wallpaper to floors and walls. The catalogue contains many different textures and materials, which you can extend with your own. Furnish both the interior and exterior of your design with the bedroom, kitchen and garden furniture. The exterior can also be landscaped by applying contours and adding plants and trees. Examine the effect of shadows from any location in the world and any time of day / month of the year. Complete the design by adding a background photo of your immediate or distant surroundings and output a photo-realistic image. New latest version :

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Home Renovation Software I have ever used 4 April 2012
I purchased Visual Building Basic direct from the company's website a few weeks ago, to visualise some renovation work I am carrying out on my home.

It's a great piece of software that's easy to get into and you can get some great results fast. It only took an hour to visualise a fairly complex room, which highlights it's ease of use.
I found the video tutorials on the company's website to be very useful when dealing with more complicated tasks.

In summary, it's great value for money, easy to use and gives very professional results.Visual Building Basic

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice bit of software 6 April 2012
Thought I would try out this software and was very impressed.

Very easy to use, especially with using the tutorials.

Still getting the hang of all the features, but so far so good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great - but 11 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase
I've been using CAD for years since before AutoCAD started using Years in the name of its products.
Thanks to Kevin McCloud and Sarah Beeny most people expect to see a walk through 3d model these days if you do house plans for them. There is a bit of a learning curve if you have used other CAD products before but this does reward you with some great 3d models.
The but in the title comes from a personal point of view and is mainly because I was expecting to just be able to jump in and use it. A bit naive I know but as I said I have been using other CAD products for years.
Overall though definitely worth its price tag and if you put a bit of time in to learn how to use it properly (there are loads of how to videos on the company website) you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Service 23 July 2013
By Brett
Contacted several companies regarding floor plans for my business. Out of all companies Les at Visual Building was by far the most helpful. There are a range of options with support available and they really do put their competitors to shame. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent software and support 19 Mar. 2013
By Simon
I was a bit concerned only to have a pdf file and no printed manual at first, but this concern soon passed after discovering the many free tutorial videos available. I was able to quickly get up and running after watching the videos and when i did have a few questions, these were quickly answered by Visual Buildings technical support people. Very fast response within a few minutes.
I have previously used several other home design software tools, and they were either USA origin and the styles and terms used were different to my needs, or the software was old and slow. Visual Building was better than anything else that i have ever used and i wished i had tried it earlier, saving myself a lot of time and money.
Try the software, try the videos, try the support and see for yourself.
