    Can spell Chief Architect but not Revit?

    They have a free trial.....knock yourself out... Chief Architect Home Design Software - Free Trial Version Download

    But if you are doing it just for fun.... Total 3D Home, Landscape & Deck Premium Suite 12 for Windows (1-User) [Download] | Staples® That is created by the Chief Architect folks too....but way less expensive..

    BTW...there are lots of similarities between CA and Revit. I found it was really easy to learn, it was just the modeling methodology was a bit different than Revit. It has the ability to create sections and elevations, but I was told to draft the sections manually, as there is a glitch on where the roof connects to the wall. It's an awesome program though if you are a home designer and put lots of detail into kitchens and bathrooms though.
