  1. i have been designing and building custom homes for 30 years. I have also built numerous architect-designed homes. I enjoy drawing floor plans by hand with a pencil and T-square. Once the floor plans are resolved and dimensioned, I typically engage a CAD draftsman to create the construction documents. I purchased Chief last year and after working with the software for a while could create a simple set of plans. However, i realized that it would take me a long time working with the software to be able to take them to the level of detail that I want to achieve. I am looking for an Chief expert who would be interested in 1.drawing my house plans (based on hand drawings/details i provide) and taking them to substantial completion 2. creating custom templates to be refined and used on successive projects 3. consulting work to help me use the files for each project to make modifications, to print documents, create as-built sets of plans for each house, etc. I have one plan to start working on in January 2021, and one or two additional plans next spring/summer. If anyone is interested please let me know. Sincerely, Marc Propst WNC DesignBuild, Inc.

    Hi, just getting started with Chief. I'm drawing my first floorplan. Once the perimeter of the plan is enclosed, Chief add 6 1/8" to the width and depth of the building. I'm at a loss to understand why...any thoughts on why it's doing this? thanks!

    thanks for the reply. i've done one small plan and didn't have a problem. it's adding 6 1/8" in both directions, when i zoom in, it's measuring framing and not the lap siding (which wouldn't add up to 3+" either.... i purchased the intermediate seminar and am following it.... thanks again

    Just getting started with this software. The video for default settings has a "Room" call out which is shown just after "Roads, Sidewalks...." The "Rooms" call out is missing in my software. Can anyone advise how to turn this on? Thanks
