**Virtual availability only or are you not able to find someone local to fit your needs? All we need to start is drawings of your “Before” space. I can provide site-measured “As Built” Plans created of your existing space with options such as on-site and virtual live measurement collection, self-measure using my guided checklists, video imaging scans like that offered by Matterport and more
Typical Drawings Offered: Site Plan/Plot Plan, Floor Plans, Elevations, Cross-Sections, Reflected Ceiling Plans, Roof Plans, Electrical Plans, Plumbing & HVAC, Window & Door Schedule, Foundation Plan, Details, and Calculations such as Electrical Load, Attic Ventilation, UA Fenestration, Natural Glazing/Ventilation and more!

Looking for design partner for upcoming projects. My previous designer used Chief and he is too busy to take on additional work. Ideally looking for someone who may have building experience in addition to being a designer. Looking for someone who can deliver preliminary floor plans and elevations to facilitate proof of concept, someone who can design to specific standards for ARC review and submission standards. The designer will need to understand page naming conventions and all related requirements for the city of Bend Oregon for streamlined permit submission. Structural drafting and coordination with structural engineers.
