Free simple drawing program for simple floor plans, elevations & construction details

Looking for recommendations on freebie downloadable software with a short learning curve that can be used to draw simple site plans, floor plans, building elevations and construction details.

I've been using FastPlans12. There is a bit of a learning curve, but with a mouse & the zoom in qualities you can get very nice detailed plans. I have drawn multiple floor plans for cabins, foundations, room additions, etc. and used them to get permits also. just my $.02.

I'm making a note for our company to try all of these... helpful to me, as well! Are any of these 3D modeling programs, that once finalized, they can be "rotated" for different views? For the more "advanced" client.
Thanks again! :)

I'm late to the conversation, but if you just need a quick site plan put together (not drawn by yourself), then you can check out MySitePlan.com. They put them together on AutoCAD. No surveyor needed, so they're cheap.
