Designer needed for General Contractor - Contract Based

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I am a GC based in LA. I currently do my own designs and am still learning chief but I am now looking to scale the company. What I am looking for is is someone who can take my 2d plan drawings and input them into chief ( I will be using home designer pro). 

 

I would like to set up some basic recurring items. Shaker cabinets, fridge, range.

 

I will lay out the basic idea of the room on 2d with measurements and locations of cabinets, windows doors etc. I need someone to draw this up in Chief, add in any tile/backsplash colour that needs to be added. Once this is all done, I would like to get layouts that I can then pass onto my subs for cabinets, electrical etc. It will be simple to start with and could get a little more complex, but I have an architect doing the framing when i have professional drawings done. 

 

It would be on a contract basis. Shouldn't take more than an hour or 2 for someone who knows what they are doing.

 

Anyone interested, please message me

I have learned to avoid working with people that think something only takes an hour.

Couldn’t agree more.  I used to have an electrician years ago who was a good ole southern boy.  I gave him quick description of a little project I needed him to do, adding that it should be pretty easy.

 

He responded in a slow southern drawl... “It all sounds easy if you say it fast enough”.  

 

I absolutely loved it.

      Open to new work. I've been working remotely for clients for years and can easily navigate the issues that present themselves from remote work. I have plenty of references and videos demonstrating my various services. The following images are snippets from my site at www.RabbittDesign.net
       

      I offer training-while-drafting services in Chief Architect as well as training in Sketchup, Thea Render, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Procreate.
      I tend to cater to experienced designers and drafters in Chief Architect, many of which benefit from and are quite pleased with anno/layer sets, library items, toolbars, and a more cohesive folder structure and .plan and .layout files. 
      A few hours of my service may cut hours off of every project you have going forward.
      Feel free to check out my YouTube channel dedicated to all things drafting, designing, modeling and rendering in my signature below.
      Take a look at some of my recent design work in the Gallery
