There was a discussion here starting in Nov 2017, entitled
"software to do drawings of houses, gardens, etc."
where several people bemoaned the difficulty they had in getting
any GUI-based CAD program to do what they needed, without a
huge learning curve.
Someone described how they'd instead used hand-coded PostScript
(which is in essence a set of drawing commands, normally sent to a
laser printer) to draw plans for house changes.
Something like that might be easier to get to grips with. A /big/
advantage of using scripts is that one gets to place comments in
the script explaining what's going on, why one did something in a
particular way etc.
Also scripts easily allow parameterisation of values - eg (for the
house plans) what the thickness of a piece of timber is, or what
the spacing between regular items should be.
