What’s the best way to design a dream home on my PC?

I wanted as a hobby to put aside half an hour or so from my time (every day) to design anawesome, best case scenario real estate (probably a house). And I want to visualize all the details, furniture and appliances that will make up the whole property. What is the best program to help me do that? Google Sketch Up seems like an interesting and easy to operate software, but will it have enough sophistication to help me “construct” a house? The other expensive, professional programs like AutoCad and so on are of no interest to me since I don’t wanna pay such a price for them and don’t have the time to learn to operate them properly.
Your participation and responces are greatly appreciated!

    I think Autodesk Homestyler or Planner 5D will be perfect for you, they are both free Chrome apps, all you need is Chrome browser and that's it!
    Here is a link for Autodesk Homestyler: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/autodesk-homestyler/kdmmkfaghgcicheaimnpffeeekheafkb?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon

    And for Planner 5D: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/planner-5d/mcafejemebbngbglfoinpoaannbihjna?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon

    Well you could try what Rajaa has said. That's the best out there. And of course, there's AutoDesk Inventor as Alan said. You might also want to give this a try: http://www.sketchup.com/ . Sketchup was deveoloped by Google, but later sold to Trimble.

    AutoDesk Inventor is a great piece of software that lets you create anything and then assemble the things you've made in an environment.
