sweethome3d is in my repos but it says it is an

is an "exterior" ditto :)

No sign of DraftSight tho so how would one
acquire and install that?

Besides if it is heavy on your boxes I don't
think it will even run here. Perhaps I should
just do ASCII art in Emacs...

February 2017: This is a very critical hotfix. All customers who downloaded DraftSight between 2012 to 2017 must install this hotfix to avoid usage interruptions .

DraftSight is proprietary software with various limitations. They only provide a package for Ubuntu and Fedora, I would not attempt installing that on Debian as is. Librecad or Qcad are the best options to my knowledge.
