  3. Thanks guys for you help. I purchased the surface pro 4 yesterday evening. Room planner was not meeting my needs. 1. Can't delete walls 2. limited library 3. I'm just acclimated to chief premier (faster) RP was taking to long to get the as-built for my kitchen remodels. I not sure if it me or the app. Time is Money.. David Caddoo, I'm also plan on using my Bluetooth mouse and keyboard. The SP4 was $899.99 and a additional $130.00 for the keyboard. Needless to say I didn't purchase the keyboard, just a very good Protective case Again thanks everyone.
  4. I'm considering to purchase a surface pro 3 for as-built. Chief's "Room Planner" is just not getting it done. It only good for sketching out the wall, which is great, but....
  5. I'm trying to create a 3 drawer 36" corner base cabinet. I'm not sure how to do this. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
  6. Hey I'm not sure what you was asking but.... I made some changes in the defaults for the story pole dimension and tweak the names of the callouts. Also look at the cross section. We do things a little different down south.. I would have made it a mono slab, but lowered the bottoms of the footing to be below frost line, 24" Hope this helped. heit garage CA2 AHSHD 16.plan
  7. I use a similar product called "Superior Walls". Superior Wall (TN.) guarantee the wall will be level, plumb, and square with in a 1/8" of a inch. Also a footing and water proofing is not needed. They will also install the stone (79) for a additional cost. If it works out let me know, especially if its priced better than Superior Walls.
  8. what part is not clear ??? Lew The late fee? Why a late fee? Most Memberships and licenses boards have late fees.
  9. I thought SSA was a fee paid to access certain libraries, videos, and tech support. not a membership fee.. AIBD and NAHB has late fee for Memberships... Gee Wiz!!! I need clarity. The Email I received Please Note: If your SSA expires, a $95 late fee will be applied and the one-year SSA period will begin from the time of renewal. If a new version has since been released, then you are subject to regular upgrade pricing.

  13. Go to the American Institute of Building Design website. They will have the guidelines for your state. I join the organization 10 years ago. There are different levels in the organization. Also they have Continuous Education seminars. Once you join, they will be a big help to you. Also, you'll probably need to join the International Code Council and get a Code Book. Hope this Helps!!
