Please let us know.

I work with people from all over the world and have in past worked for local companies on a full time basis. My experience is that I almost never have to leave the office. So long as I have someone to perform takeoffs, I can work at a remote location and I work at all hours of the day and night. If you're interested at all please contact me. I'd be happy to lighten the work load.

      Established Green Building Design Company located in Central Colorado is looking for an architect or designer to collaborate on green building design projects.  Seeking someone who is experienced and passionate about green building principles and practices and proficient with Chief Architect, preferably X12.  Specific needs include construction documents and design collaboration.  This would be a part-time hourly contract arrangement as needed, but could grow into a longer term collaboration.   Green Edge Design is a growing design firm, located in Salida, Colorado.  We specialize in small footprint custom passive solar design, alternative wall systems, and high performance building design.  We do not design trophy homes or track homes.  Our work is regional, so collaborator does not have to currently live in Colorado, but having experience in the intermountain region and the 4 corner states is preferable.  
      If interested, please reply here or send your resume to craig@greenedgedesign.com.  Please visit our website:  greenedgedesign.com for more information about what we do.  
      Thank you!

      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
      Also, take a look at the extensive Free Content Thread and continued free content YouTube Series:
