for simple stuff you might like to consider Open Office Draw?

I recently used it for design and draw for a large iron gate - 
approximately 2 metres high and also 2 wide, made from 40 mm square 
tube and 26mm square bar. I used oo draw with a 1/16the scale drawing 
and the resolution was at least 0.1mm for the dimensions.

It is to my own design, to suit the house. I created a manufacturing 
drawing - scaled - on A4 sheet :-)  with all dimensions and comments.

It has been made up and fitted, and is now gracing my house.
