  2. I think the idea is to keep your time from introduction. We played a similar game a Chief Academy; participates were given 10 minutes from the time the challenge was revealed to share their results. Good luck! We are excited to see how it plays out!
  3. Hello, Thank you for your question. It is not required to have the X14 version to participate in the challenge. The catalogs for these challenges will contain items such as materials, accessories, fixtures, hardware, etc. however it is not required to use the catalog to submit an entry. Architectural elements are more important than colors & materials. Let us know if you have any questions!
  4. Did you miss the event but want to get the details for your planning next year? Visit the Blog to get the scoop! Be sure to watch the video for candid photos throughout the event.
  5. The Chief Architect Challenge is a fun exercise designed to test your skills and encourage learning. See how many design elements you can recreate in 10 minutes – a layout page is not required. We recommend starting from the default template file and spend 10 minutes on the design. If you are using a custom template, no problem, be sure to clear out your time tracker entries before beginning. Each Chief Challenge has a corresponding library file (linked below) that will help you complete the design. Please download and import it before you begin. Chief Architect staff will judge the entries – architectural elements are more important than colors & materials. Chief Architect will host a live webinar each week showing how to create the design in 10 minutes, and a winner will be announced. Each Chief Challenge winner will receive a limited edition Chief Gear kit. We look forward to seeing your work! Learn about the Challenges and how to submit your entry on the ChiefBlog.

  14. There is something magical about Coeur d’Alene that’s hard to define, but begins with the spectacular North Idaho sunsets and moonrises on Lake Coeur d’Alene, the plunge of an osprey after a fish, the glowing lights of downtown Coeur d’Alene reflecting across its waters at night.
