Does anyone out there know a location from where I can download free timber frame design software?

Alternatively, does anyone know of a software program for sale, specifically for the designing of timber frame homes, allowing for bent structures and SIPs design, etc?

Google Sketchup should fit the bill, Im looking for frame downloads for it!
Gary is right. Sketchup is an ideal program for designing a Timber Frame as well as the sips enclosures. Here is a link to the latest version.....http://sketchup.google.com/product/gsu.html

The free version will serve you just fine. Once you download it you can go to the "warehouse"..... here http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/ There are projects there you can download and see how they were designed.
Joe, Google Sketchup is the way to go. Visit Northern Lights to plug in rubies and find timber frame design support.
