Recommended Posts

I am designing a house that will be constructed in Saskatchewan Canada. 

I have produced a basic model of the house using Home Designer Pro 2017. I require a Designer / engineer to take the model file and finish detailing it (floor joists, trusses, etc.) 

I will require a full set of plans that can be used for permitting and construction of the house.

Designer must be familiar with the National Building Code of Canada (2015) and the National Energy Code of Canada (2017).

Yet another Canadian designer jumps into the "we can help with that" boat. 

 

I am located near Toronto, and am a registered designer.  Be glad to offer my services to get you to the building permit stage with complete construction drawings.

Sorry, I haven’t had time to go over all the new posts and just got a notice about this one.

The biggest difference in Saskatchewan is the varied foundation requirements.  Frost depth and soil conditions!  Some areas have clay that moves the foundation and others sand, that doesn’t support it.  Make sure whomever you choose to do the construction drawings is aware of these conditions where you are building.

I am just catching up on the new energy code and am told one of my building inspection companies is coming out with software for it next month.

      We are a premier custom builder in the Charlotte area that just converted our design department to CA and need assistance with drafting, and documentation.  Looking to hire contract or full employment with benefits with the right candidate. Design skills are a plus but not required.  Also might be interested in training from a pro on an hourly or contract basis as on option as well. Please contact design.department@pkbuilders.com or reply directly.  Thanks!

      Hi There,
      New to Chief, my question is when creating a solarium or anything else like a timber frame pergola which takes a fair amount of work!
      Would it be best to import as an Template or Create a Layer Set? 
       
      Any advice would be appreciated,
      John

      Hello, 
       
      We are an exterior porcelain tile manufacturer looking for additional drafting services. We manufacturer exterior deck flooring and pedestal systems for residential & commercial rooftop decks, restaurants, pools, etc (mbricotiledecks.com). Our in house drafting staff is struggling to keep up with drafting requirements for our projects as our business continues to grow. We're interested in looking into freelance remote drafting services. The majority of drawings are fairly basic tile patterns in various exterior settings. Attached are a couple of examples. Please respond with hourly rate, example of work and any questions if interested. Thanks!

      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.
