    CA x10 drafter wanted

    Hi, I am looking for an expert CA X10 drafter to subcontract my construction documents to. Glitch is you need to be within 1 hour drive of Watsonville, CA. 95076. I have used remote people and they have been very good at there job but I have not been able to make remote communication work. I need some one I can sit with and redline projects. And the work needs to be in my templates and drawn in my style. Otherwise I can't easily edit revisions. Any one out there? My Best, Chad Williams 831 588 9792

  8. Chad WIlliams CWDesign Soultions 831 5988 9792 Sub Drafting Marsh Job: Helle and Jason Marsh Adams Rd, Los Gatos CA Apn 098 331 07 I would like to collaborate with another draftsman to complete construction documents for this client. As soon as possible. A 3200 sort of farm house design. He has a floor plan from an internet add that he likes and wants to modify. He has supplied a bit hard to read red line. The first thing would be to have me explain that. It’s not going to be more that coping the plan off the advertisement page and me explaining the client red lines. Please supply a quote for floor plans and elevations with dimensions and my typ annotation. Which I will supply examples of per my previously completed projects. I will send my template pln as a starter file. And figure in 4 hours of meeting time with me. Meeting via ZOOM I think will work well. We need to be working in X9. I would like your quote and 3 references please. I invite you to check me out on my web site. The project info is available in a dropbox folder link is – Feel free to email any questions. What is most important to me is our ability to communicate very clearly. Work in a timely, reliable manner and absolute accuracy. My Best Regards, Chad Williams

    Hello, I am a CA designer in Watsonville, Calif. . I have an over load of work and need help. The rub is how to get another drafter to draw the "way" I do ( I can forward templates and old work layouts ) and what it will cost me.

    Disto And Chief

    Hi All, I just got a Disto and can not in any way get it to work with the full version -x6 of Chief on my windows 8.1 PC. I know the device works - can use it on my phone - I know the disto is paired but chief will not see it. And most of the times I tried - like 20 - the transfer software disconnects. My thinking this technology is not up to speed. Any body got it working on a windows 8 PC ? Chad Williams
