Builder seeking Chief

Recommended Posts

Needing a couple of things:

1.) Need to get a few production plans drawn into Chief. Typical plan has 4 elevations and anywhere from 1-3 floor plan options. Like to get separate .plan file for each elevation and each floor plan option. I will provide typical notes and details and have attached a typical plan so you could see the level of detail.


2.) We would like to find drafters to work with on custom or semi custom plans. Most of our projects are just making elevation or floor plan modifications to our existing plans although some will be fully custom. Most of our plans are currently drawn into Chief and they all will be when item number 1 above is completed. Our custom homes salesperson would be meeting with the customer and communicating to the drafter the modifications etc. From time to time may need to do a "Go to Meeting" or similar for communication purposes.

I can help you. Just give me a call or an email.

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 (BS Rice University) and architectural engineering (MS University of Texas at Austin) and have planned, designed and developed various types of projects over my 30-year career. I am a member of the American Institute of Building Design ("AIBD"), which provides quality continuing education to ensure its members remain current with technology, materials and building codes. AIBD holds its members to the highest standards of ethics and professionalism. 


I use the latest version of the best 3D design software, currently Chief Architect Premier X9 (SSA member), and have used Chief Architect since Version 9. I use GoToMeeting to work with customers live online and OBS Live to record videos for designers and DIYers showing how to design homes using Chief Architect. I am technologically versed in all types of software that help me in my design business including, for example, creating flash and 3D PDF files. Visit the "3D Software" page on my website at to download a couple of examples of 3D PDF files of homes that I designed and a flash file showing a boat house I designed with moving water.


I have worked with owners, builders, designers and architects from all over the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and England. I can design your home from concept to working drawings, help you design a better home or help you learn Chief Architect. Whether you need a home designer or just a few hours of help, I can accommodate you.
