      I am doing a remodel and have created a separate existing building file and am using it as an underlay to show where walls are being removed: 
      BUT, when I export the views to layout, they all default to the last view I export. Here I export the first floor:

      So far so good. Here are the settings:

      Then it all goes awry. This is what happens when I export the second floor:

      And now the third...

      This only happens with this one plan. Could using the plan reference be messing things up? Has anyone seen this before?

      I am looking for someone to draft a complete set of plans for my small 1 1/2 story house. I have Chief Architect Home Designer Pro and the plans are already drawn up. The only thing that needs a little help is the roof (11/12 pitch) with a dormer (6/12 pitch). I'll need elevation plans, floor plan, foundation plan, floor framing plan, roof framing plan, wall cross-section, electrical plans that I've already done. I can't attach the Chief Architect File because it's too big but these will give you an idea of the project. Could you quote me a price and timeline?

      Hi,
       
      I have developed some plans in X12 premier for an 1800 ft^2 garage / workshop (~30'x647') that is attached to my existing house via a Porte-cochère.
       
      I have submitted it to the HOA, showing both the existing house and the additional building and it has been accepted.
       
      I created a plan of the original house and my vision of the additional new construction (garage/workshop).
       
      I haven't added the framing/electrical/plumbing yet, but would possibly like to use some of the 'perfect wall' designs that I saw Matt Risinger presents on his build show.
      Of course need to weight this against cost.
       
      Also, I need to be able to pull permits with the plans that I receive.  Want to get an official sign off from the person who perfects these plans.
       
      The city does not require a licensed architect, but I would like to have one anyways.  
       
      Generally people use post tension slab on grade in my area.  If the person I engage is not a structural engineer, I may need to enlist a second person to do the foundation design.
       
      The design is 1.5 stories.
       
      Thanks,
       
      Greg Baty
