OK I get it now...That looks like it might work on the initial visit so that you can go back and draw the "real" design..is that how you guys use this?

A new one

I use these as concept drawings usually presenting 3-5 per meeting. A few revisions then I either draw up a contract for simple stuff or jump into SketchUp for more complex designs.

So when you're doing a design in sketchup, is it a lot like hand drawing?

Try sketchup make! It's FREE!

No but it is free and there are a ton of videos for free on youtube since google used to own it. Literally a few hours and you can be up and running. Check with a local high school teacher or community college for a few classes. It really is awesome!

PS I teach it to my middle school students every year and they are up and running in no time!
