What software should we use to design our (small) house? We will have an architect draw the final plans, but want to create quick 3D models for visualization.

- Runs on Windows
- Very easy to learn
- Free/cheap would be nice, though not necessary
- A bit of landscape design & site plan capability preferred
- Ability to visualize lighting given different sun angles would be a bonus
We don't need full CAD software - again, this is just for creating quick visuals to help us with design decisions before taking our plans to the architect. Even the learning curve for SketchUp was too steep to justify. Just "point-and-click to create a wall" sort of thing is what we're looking for.
