Adobe Illustrator can do almost everything that CAD programs can do. It's easy on the Mac.

Even some of the old Mac drawing programs can do it. You could use graph paper to rough out the room proportions at 1/8": 1' or 1/4": 1' scale, scan it, bring it into the Mac as a jpeg, put it on the first layer and then draw over it with the pen tool in Illustrator.

There should even be free software that will let you do this on the Mac. Do a Google search and see what you can find.

Good luck

I've done simple floorplans & elevations using SuperPaint, which I think came with my Mac SE in 1987!
