You can try Sweet Home 3D. It has both desktop and web-based versions. It's free and open-source. It's pretty straightforward on basic planning. If I remember well, you can create multi-floor projects as well. It has some in-built furniture and there are some other furniture libraries available both on the website and from some manufacturers.

I just had the same requirements as the original question, but Visio already had an advantage for our choice as the ERD diagrams were once generated via reverse-engineering in 2007. Since, we already have Office 365 subscription Visio Pro was added to it, which gave me Visio 16 (released end of 2015). Then, we installed Database Modeling add-in for Visio to ...

I will say if you have a lot of experience with 3D solid modeling it might actually be harder to figure out BricsCAD Shape. It works differently than I expected, but looks like it is pretty capable. It isn't strictly an architecture modeler, but seems pretty slanted ...

Daft as it sounds a 360 degree camera does not provide the data in a single shot to create a 3-D model. This is because it only has a single view of any one object that is in sight. Our eyes (for most people) provide a stereo view which gives us some 3-D information on close objects and our brains and experience let us make some assumptions about further ...

This is a clear case for Blender in my opinion. Freeware, super-robust, Linux, Mac and Windows, and exceptionally powerful and flexible - enough so that despite being freeware, it's finding acceptance in the 3D industry in commercial pipelines - because it does what it does quite well. Hope that helps.
