      I am an amateur residential architectural designer and have been using Chief Architect for over 8 years for recreational purposes only. I have a very good understanding of the software and have created 8 different homes, all of which are between 80-85% complete as well as individual rooms. I have attached several renderings within a ZIP file.
      I have a basic understanding of architectural drafting with some knowledge of building codes, floor plan layout, elevations, dimensions, etc.
      In addition to Chief Architect, I have over 20 years experience with Microstation V8i SS3 which I use allot in creating various items that are imported into CA. I have also begun learning how to use Twinmotion rending software which you will see within the attachment.
      If anyone needs assistance with ongoing projects such as minor corrections, renderings, etc., please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

      I am an interior designer in the Washington DC metro area who uses Chief Architect to create furniture layouts and communicate designs for clients.  I'm looking to hire an experienced Chief Architect user who can efficiently measure residential spaces and create construction drawings that I could then add furniture and finishes to. 
      I believe there is a way to import AutoCAD into Chief.  If that is the case, the drafter could create the construction drawings in AutoCAD.   If interested, please contact me at 301.646.1320 or  Thank you!
