Is there a software that I can use to make these...

Hello everyone;

I was wondering, do you guys (at least the "computer savvy" ones) know of a software (preferably a free one) that I can use to create such brick patterns? I am trying to create building facades that I can print. I am currently trying use Word but the pattern and brick alignment breaks down after a number of bricks are stacked, no matter how careful I am.

I don't know how word works, but can you make a small section of bricks like the one you've shown and cut and paste them together to make larger sections of wall?

for example: I transferred your image into "Paint" (probably in the "Windows Accessories" folder on your computer) and cut and pasted a few blocks together. Then cut another section without the vertical bricks to paste underneath:
