Strategies for organizing and finding past designs

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering about strategies to organize and find past home designs.  I'm wanting to be able to search for potential plans that I've done in the past that may be options for future projects based on certain criteria.  Similar to how you would reach for house plans on a house plan website.  Search options would include the number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, rambler or two story, slab or basement, architectural style, etc.  I use a Mac computer and have experimented with tagging past project files but have only been able to figure out how to search using just one tag at a time.  Like all the 2 bedroom designs, or all the farmhouse style plans.  I would want to search for 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, rambler with a slab and farmhouse style.  Anybody doing this type of thing?  I also need to research more if it is possible to use multiple tags on Mac instead of just one at a time because this would be a great way to go.

Have you looked at the Plan Database built in to Chief?

I didn't even know this was a feature of Chief.  This may be a great option and I will explore this.  Is this something that you use?  Thanks Eric
