Using Excel as a CAD Program
Our friends used Excel to design the entire renovation of their beautiful 90 year old Hamilton house. I thought this was a really interesting idea and wanted to share it. Using one cell as one inch, measuring and laying out the design from there they were able to plan the whole project in multiple views. I saw the process and it works well once you get comfortable with the interface. Its a clever use of a powerful program that pretty much everyone has access to. The renovation was featured in Our Homes Hamilton Fall 2015 issue showcasing some stunning interior design details.
