Dia is the open source GNOME (Linux) Desktop solution, and also has a
Windows version.

But, note this thread on floor plan use: -at- gnome -dot- org/msg10808.html

"Dia is a gtk+ based diagram creation program, inspired by the
commercial Windows program 'Visio', though more geared towards informal
diagrams for casual use. It can be used to draw many different kinds of
diagrams. It currently has special objects to help draw entity
relationship diagrams, UML diagrams, flowcharts, network diagrams, and
many other diagrams. It is also possible to add support for new shapes
by writing simple XML files, using a subset of SVG to draw the shape. It
can load and save diagrams to a custom XML format (gzipped by default,
to save space), can export diagrams to a number of formats, including
EPS, SVG, XFIG, WMF and PNG, and can print diagrams (including ones that
span multiple pages)."
