My design experience focuses on high-end residential homes with 3000 to 6000+ square feet. I have also designed many in the 2000 sq ft range. Additionally, I’ve also produced plans for metal buildings, condos, room additions, site & civil plans, and a boat dock. My plans have included all structural details with the exception of the metal building itself. I use AutoCAD with ArchT add-on to produce the floor plans which have smart walls & objects similar to Architectural Desk Top.
