Would like help learning Home Designer

Recommended Posts



I would like to speak with someone who would be interested in teaching me the Home Designer software in a more in Depth way. I'm an IT consultant currently in transition to renovating homes. There are several items that I am having trouble with that are probably very easy for someone to show or teach me. 

Thank you in Advance,

I have Home Designer Pro 2019. I consider myself Entry level, in terms of using the product. 
I clicked on "Seeking Services" but perhaps this topic belongs somewhere else? 


Thank you,

You are in the correct spot. David is probably your best bet if you are wanting one on one training.


Have you reviewed the training materials available via the Home Designer website -- videos and knowledge base articles? Also the Chief Architect YouTube channel has good videos showing start to finish projects.


I started with Home Designer and learned from these resources, and came from an IT background.


And keep the HomeTalk forum in mind. David and I both respond there.

      I am a creative Cadd designer with unique experience and perspective from my collection of work as a designer. I have 10 years experience as an engineering tech and cadd designer, working for architects and engineers.
      I  use Chief Architect Premier X9 - X11(SSA member) and have used Chief Architect since Version X6, or for roughly 5-8 years. I use Team Viewer and Zoom meeting to conduct online meetings and review work together online. I am technologically versed in all types of Cadd programs, and other software that help me in my design business.

      I am happy to talk with you about your design needs, or to review your plan with you online to see how we could work together. I am on the east coast of SW Florida. My rates can be discussed on a per project basis, or hourly based on the size and scope of the project.

      I have Home Designer Suite 2019 and would like to find someone to draw my entire house in the software. I would mail a copy of the original paper house plans and then would like the house professionally drawn in the software so that I can go in and edit and make changes over time.
