Anyone near Louisiana - Drafting Help Needed

Recommended Posts

I am seeking some drafting and layout page setup help.  I am a Chief product user of 9 years and currently use X9.  I currently design and build but I,m in the process of phasing out all the construction and will be doing design and consulting only.

 

I create all my designs myself, but I’m looking to work with an experienced Chief user that could efficiently setup my designs in layout.  Once my preliminary first draft is ready, I would like to then have it set up in layout.  Setting up all of my pages, elevations, sections, and construction documents etc.   Allowing me to focus on even more design projects.  I would then do the final editing and adding of renders etc.  I would have other drafting and design work once we began to work together.

 

If you have interest, please email me some references, work examples in Chief layout form, and your typical pricing information.

 

 

I am Located in Alexandria Louisiana and do design work throughout the State.

Jeff,

 

I'm located in Sulphur, LA. I own SWLA Drafting LLC, which has been gone by other names in the past. I've been in the residential house plan business for over 10 years now. Check out my website www.swladrafting.com for a sample of what I can do. 

 

My email address is Jeff@swladrafting.com

 

I use X10 if compatibility is an issue. I am also upgrading my hardware to better run renderings, as my computer locks up in physics based mode whenever over 50 lights are on simultaneously. If you need renderings run, I can help there too.

 

Thanks,

 

Jeff Scoggins

      Hi 
      I am using x10.  I have a kitchen type that I will multiply many times and save by unit #. I need to have the unit # show up on my layout page for each plan that is saved. 
      Not sure how to save the units and have the info show up. 
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi guys, I'm new here and pretty new to Chief Architect. I have Home Designer Suite 2020, not the Premier version. I'm a graphic designer, just working up plans for a builder to show his concepts to clients. I'm having problems with a shed roof. I've looked up a bunch of videos and steps on how to do it, but it's not coming out quite right. I'll attach images.
       
      I have the 2nd floor height set to 2 feet, because that seemed to be the only way to get the roof to go Shed. The front (high) wall of the 2nd floor needs to be about 10 ft tall, and the back wall needs to be 2-3 ft tall. I have the front wall marked as High Shed/Gable Wall, the back as a Knee Wall, and the two side walls as Full Gable. In the video I watched, the side walls automatically adjusted to fill in, and the high shed wall bumped up as well to the height it needed to be for the roof pitch (which I have set as 3" in 12). I just can't seem to figure out where I've gone wrong and would very much appreciate some advice!

      Do yourself a favor - get a copy of Get Your House Right.
       
      It is a map through the thousand design decisions you'll be making as you design a house. It is a dictionary of the Architectural Vocabulary our predecessors worked to perfect and articulate, and is your key to taking your designs to the next level. 
       
      You have to drive around this life and see houses designed by total amateurs, littering the neighborhoods and fields along the roadway - don't let your designs fall into this category.
       
      You owe it to yourself to buy this book and study it.
