Afraid I can't help. I tried Magic Plan a few times but had issues with it.  Interested to see what others have to say.

I'm such a horrible measurer - even with good software, I stink at it! So, I hire it out and know that my floorplan guy has folks in another country put it together for him once he sends in his rough sketches.

Sorry, I'm no help Sally!

User friendly and Goof Proof!!!!  Now THAT's a high bar.

Hire someone local to do the MATTERPORT thing.

Matterport provides a floorplan view in addition to the 3D renderings. AND Matterport includes MEASURING. 

What's not to like?  Hmmm, maybe the $$$$.

I've not used floor plan software before. I know there are third parties for hire ... but a DYI ... I know nothing about. 

Parked and Reading.

Forgot about Matterport doing the floorplan also for that vid they use.

I used to use one & then just stopped. I found it a little awkward.

Look for a CAD engineer or talk with some local architects or structural engineers.  We found a really inexpensive guy out here through our structural engineer.
