    Is SSA included with HD Architectural 2020?

    Hello, Thank you for posting this question. SSA is only available for our Chief Architect products (Premier and Interiors). The cabinet catalogs are only available to download with SSA on these Chief Architect versions. Cabinet catalogs are not available for Home Designer products, however, you can still use the cabinet tools in Home Designer for cabinet design. There are door and drawer styles included in the library software that you can apply to your cabinets. The cabinet styles are very similar across the manufacturers, so you can generally get exactly or very close to the cabinet style offered by stock and semi custom cabinet companies. Kind regards, Derek Chief Architect Software

    Rental Buyout

    Thank you for the question. You can buy out your rental and save on the rental fee and also buy the rental out at the promotional price (good through Dec. 30) so you get double savings. You would need to contact Sales to see what your individual buyout price would be depending on how many payments you have made to date. You can contact sales by calling 208-292-3400 or email Kind regards, Derek Pedersen Chief Architect Software
