  1. My client designed the home shown on the attached plans. They were drawn by a builder that they have decided they won't be hiring. I'll be building the home instead. I have Chief and can redraw them myself but I don't have the time right now. The only reason I want them drawn is the client wants me to make some modifications. I have time to draw the modifications but not the entire plan. If you're interested, please contact me with your turn around time, pricing, and method of payment.

  2. Looks like I figured that out too. I had written down the angle the lot perimeter had made with the North Pointer before I started doing all of this. After getting the house parallel with the lot boundary, I opened the dbx for the North pointer and changed the angle in accordance with what I had written down. My last question is that when I rotated the lot boundary, 2 "x" spots remained and didn't rotate with the boundary. Any idea how to remove them? I don't need them. Thanks!
  3. Ok...I got the parallel part taken care of. How to I rotate the North pointer the exact amount I rotated the boundary? I originally drew the boundary line by doing inputs like N 65 49' 19" E, etc.
  4. Another quick question... I'm trying to position this cabin so that it is parallel to the side property boundary. I'd like to have 12' in between the porch and the boundary to have room for a driveway. For some reason, I can't figure out how to use the parallel tool to make this happen. (Or any other way) Currently the house is at a slight angle to the side property line at 7'1". Attached is a zip of the plan. Thank you!Cabin Sketch 2 Plot Plan Version.plan Cabin Sketch 2 Plot Plan
  5. What jurisdiction will this be done in? My concern is the existing rough sawn lumber. Depending on how strict codes enforcement is, they may require some sort of engineering letter, signing off on the grade of it. Also, for clarification, what do they want the barn to be used for? Finally, I seem to recall there are a lot of threads on here about how to draw post and beam and/or timber framing. I would think those would be of great help on the design side. I think the barn looks great by the way.
  6. Thanks for all of the pointers everyone! I'll be putting them to use later this week.
  7. Attached is the file of a bathroom I'm helping a friend to remodel. I thought it would be an easy raytrace but I let this run all afternoon and after 68 passes, the attached pic is what it looked like. Any help with the raytrace settings would be much appreciated as I've never really spent any time doing them. Side note: I have a Surface Book with an NVidia GeForce graphics card so it should easily handle this. Thanking everyone in advance, Steve
  8. I attached a zip of the file. Please don't judge I don't work in the software very often. That roof section is the same pitch as the ones adjacent to it so I have no idea why it's showing up so dark. Also, the only way I could get it to send to layout in B&W was to send it "current screen as image" and then just resized it to fit. I have no idea what scale it ended up as though. Not a problem in this instance as it's just for their lender to do an updated appraisal for their construction loan. Morris Final 2.6 1.30.19 Balcony
  9. I feel kinda rotten...I never noticed these last 2 responses. I figured it out with the all the help offered though. Thanks to everyone!
  10. And for some reason, this one section of roof still displays in color even after F8:
  11. Magic! It didn't change it in the layout though. I guess I have to resend it to layout?
  12. I'm sure this is really easy but can't find it do I toggle off the colors in elevation views so that they only appear as B&W line drawings? Thanks!
  13. Lol...right...I don't know how to move the roof out of the way though.
  14. the polylines. Still having trouble figuring out how to make this area a brick wall flush and matching the brick wall below. Any suggestions?
  15. 1.) I'll have to learn to draw poly boxes in elevation. I've never done that but I'm sure I can find a thread or video somewhere showing it. 2.) I think I might understand what you are suggesting...maybe try to clarify for me? I DON'T want my client doing this in real life. The house was built in 1855 and doing a vaulted ceiling will just be wrong in my opinion. If she sticks to her guns though, I'll frame a couple of beams to stack the porch rafters on. Then we'll cut back the overhang on the main house (under the porch roof I mean) enough that they can continue the brick wall up to
