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.
