Cocke County, TN

Recommended Posts

My wife and I currently live in the Birmingham, Alabama area, but we own some land in Cocke County TN.
We are going to build our retirement home there in about three years, but want to start working with a Contractor/builder now.
Here is our needs:
I have been working with a program called Chief Architect Home Designer Suite 2016 and would like to work with  company that can read this file, or has the capability to receive and use .DXF or .EMF files.
We only go to the land to camp, about once or twice a year, so working via internet is extremely important to us.
This would not be our first custom built home, but it will be our last.
What we would like to do is find a builder that meets our requirements, then send them a copy of what we designed and get a price on building a home to our specs.
Once we are fully happy, we would be more then willing to partner up and together make any modifications to the design as needed and based on the land and my inexperience to actually design, and in 2020, start building
Are you able to help us?

Howdy  Paul and Debbi Dziedzic,


I would like the opportunity to talk to you about Chief Architect design work.
I am a creative designer with unique experience and perspective from my collection of work as a designer and builder. I have degrees in structural engineering and architectural engineering and have planned, designed and developed various types of projects over my 30-year career. I use Chief Architect X9 (SSA member) and have used Chief Architect since Version 9. I use GoToMeeting and am technologically versed in all types of software that help me in my design business including, for example, creating flash and 3D pdf files.
I would be happy to review your plan with you online to see how we could work together. No charge.
Thank you in advance for the opportunity to discuss our working together.

      American Heritage Homes is a locally owned, custom home builder with over 25 years experience building in the Central Ohio area. We are currently seeking an experienced, high-energy Drafting professional to join our team. 
      We are not seeking remote services or contract services at this time - so only those that can work in and around Central Ohio need reply.
      The Drafter/Designer creates working drawings for construction of new custom homes, as well as creates specific details for specialty items such as fireplaces, kitchens, bathrooms, and exteriors.
      The Drafter/Designer must utilize strong communication skills and attention to detail while working with the Operations team to incorporate all details from the contract and customer selections into construction drawings.
      Successful candidates will have prior experience with Chief Architect software and residential construction / blueprint creation. Strong organizational and people skills, and sound knowledge of home building are a must.
      If you meet these requirements, and you enjoy working in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment, this may be the opportunity for you!
      This position offers an excellent compensation and benefits package, including comprehensive medical/dental, retirement benefits with a company match, and much more!
       We build homes for our customers on land that they own. We don't build spec homes for sale. Every home, every customer, and every lot is different and very unique.

      I am a new CA Premier X12 user and would like someone to review my plan & layout files for a new construction residential duplex that will be located in Bethlehem, CT (see rough draft).  I am looking for feedback regarding my use of Chief Architect as well as any architectural, structural/engineering and/or building feedback such as:
      changes to make the CA plan more efficient, reusable, maintainable, etc. changes needed to meet code requirements changes that can save money or be more cost effective to build changes that might be more aesthetically pleasing to a buyer changes that will make the plans clearer/easier to read/understand for the builder, lumber yard and/or building inspector feedback on material choices (zip system or Tyvek, roof trusses or not, floor trusses or I joists, batts or foam insulation, vinyl/wood/hardie siding, etc.) any wisdom that might help me avoid long delays, bad contractor experiences, problems with the town/state/health dept., etc.  
      I don't expect you to be an expert in all 4 areas (CA, architecture, engineering & building), so if you are only able to help with one of those areas I would still be happy to consider you for just the piece that you have experience with.  If you are interested please send me a personal message with information on how you would be able to help and what your rates are.

      I am a layperson who's been experimenting with Chief Architect for over a year now- dreaming up, designing (and re-designing) my family's future "dream home."
      We are ready to move toward the next stage of building on our acreage in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, and we're seeking help.  I would like to find a nearby architect/draftsman who uses Chief so that my existing (but unprofessional) plans might be most easily adapted.
      We'd also like to start talking with potential builders.  We have no experience with construction-complete virgins to the process.  This project will be the realization of fifteen years of dreaming- our "forever home" and biggest lifetime investment.  It's very important we get it right!
      Thanks in advance for any information or advice.
