We made a lot of renovations in the past years, still in it!

I used QCad on DragonFly to modify the plans that I bought for a patio 
deck. I had to bring down the length from 12 to 8 feets and calculate 
precisely the position of the pillars, it was a lot of fun. Once I got 
used to QCad, the job was done very fast. I didn't try LibreCad since 
QCad fits my needs for now.

Your build projects looks good to me! Good luck for your work. :-)
