Shop Building Design & Construction Prints

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen,

I am a professional model-maker and cnc machinist looking to build a new 40'x60' workshop on my property. I am well versed in SolidWorks and AutoCAD, but not Chief Architect. I am contemplating renting CA for a couple of months to complete the design of my new workshop and generate construction drawings, but before I pull the trigger on that, and spend a good deal of time learning the software, I would like to get quotes for someone else to complete the design work and generate prints. Please contact me offline for details and to bid the job.

Conventional framing on top of 4 foot tall cinder block. Exterior of cinder block would be faux stone. Exterior of framing would be Hardy board. I would also consider cinder block the full 12 foot of ground floor with faux stone on outside, and poured concrete in cinder block walls. Cost is main consideration. Attic trusses above this to create future granny flat or space for model railroad above main shop.

 

I can give you more details offline.

 

Thanks,

 

Dave Queener

Hello,

I have just started selling 2D and 3D printers and I recently setup a small shop where the Customers can visit and check out the printers or give out printing orders and buy other related supplies. I am looking to expand now can anyone suggest where can I get a loan or a credit line to expand


Did you ask your Nana?  Or how bout maybe the local pawn shop?

      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,

      I currently have a remodel to an existing home. I am a General Contractor. I need someone to take some PDF's and DWG's and turn them into an existing plan, plus add to it the proposed remodel. Needs to be ready for submittal to Kootenai County, ID for permitting. I can send you plans for review. I would like to reach a flat rate fee plus an hourly for revisions if necessary. I am working in CA X12 and would like them in that format for ease of transfer. Please give me your availability as I am looking for someone to start very soon. Thank you.

      I am a many year Chief Architect user as a non-professional designer. We have built some of my designs (including the house I have just sold and need to replace) but now I need to convert a design to a fully engineered, green project quickly. The design is single family, ~3,000 sq ft with a mix of carefully chosen pedestrian and high end details. We need plans for bids in two weeks and engineered plans in a month. I know this is quick but I did not expect to sell the house. I have done all of the work relating to lighting, views, wind, snow load, etc. and have the design hammered out but I cannot complete the fully engineered plans. Please contact me if you are interested.
