Residential Measurer/Drafter Wanted, Washing DC Metro


Recommended Posts

I am an interior designer in the Washington DC metro area who uses Chief Architect to create furniture layouts and communicate designs for clients.  I'm looking to hire an experienced Chief Architect user who can efficiently measure residential spaces and create construction drawings that I could then add furniture and finishes to. 

 

I believe there is a way to import AutoCAD into Chief.  If that is the case, the drafter could create the construction drawings in AutoCAD.   If interested, please contact me at 301.646.1320 or lori@everettscottdesigns.com  Thank you!

      Not sure what the official ask/profession is but ideally id like to find someone local to the Phoenix area that could come and measure my house and draw up the existing layout so it can be manipulated in Home Designer Pro.
       
      We are looking to remodel the house and I'd like to draw up some ideas in HD but I don't know where to start on mapping the existing house accurately. Ultimately I'd get an architect to complete the final plans - i assume using these professionally measured and draw up house plan as a base.
       
      Any recommendations, services or advice on better ways to do this would be gratefully receive.
      Thanks, Adam
