Lightbulb Looking for porch roof idea/design software

I have an existing concrete porch just outside my back door on the west side of my home in Texas. In the summertime, it just bakes with heat. I'm toying with the idea of putting up a simple porch roof to shade the patio area with a lattice type top and railings around the new porch area. Does anyone have any software ideas that would be good in helping me to plan & construct this project?

I have used Microsoft Visio to do designing but this is not cheap (I used a copy at my work location).
I am going to try a new piece of FREE software I just came across last night. It does not appear to be completely simple, but I am going to put the time in to try and figure it out. There is a manual you get with it too...it is not often you get a manual too.

You can download it at www.download.com
Search for QCad (yes it is intended to be a CAD tool) to get the version you want (windows or linux).

Hope you find it helpful. Good luck.
