This is something new for me i never used a cad program before but i am sure i can figure it out my question is what is a good cad program to design my remodel of my home. The cost of the program isnt that big of a deal i just want a program that doesn't take an engineering degree to use. :D

You can use AuotoCAD Civil 3D or REVIT Architecture

You can download & use free trials from here. They are fully functional for 30days, after that you need to activate.

Basically, bieng a mechanical Design engineer & User of Autodesk Autocad, i can suggest you to go with REVIT.
If you have working knowledge with 3D tools like inventor or solidworks you can use them also.

1. Make all your inputs ready
2. Download & install CAD tool you want.
3. Get yourself trained with tool if needed, make complete model of your home within 30 days without fail.
4. After that you can use a free tool called e-drawings to view, measure & print those drawings (but you cannot edit :(  )
