Very nice, keep us up to date. Also post the plan because many are wanting to see light commercial projects done in CA.

Do you draw the entire project in Chief or do you finish with another program?

Thanks Larry, ShaneK and perry for the kind words. Regarding the finishing of projects, nowa days I have pretty much realized that every thing can be done in chief and it is all about creating accurate models to easily produce plan sets . But I work with AutoCAD guys and mostly they need the DWG file. I will post it after I finish or scan my external drive for one to post.

Here is another example of how I use it, RC STRUCTURE.

      Hello all,
      It has been some time since I last asked a question as I don't get to use this software very often in my business we mostly remodel condos.
      I have a bunch of cabinets all designed in Chief and was wondering if there was a way to generate a cut list of parts that go into building those cabinets with Chief??
      It would be such a time saver if this was possible. They are frame-less cabinets and a few are custom sizes.
      Your help would be greatly appreciated.

      There is a current thread going about post frame buildings. I just yesterday picked up a client who wants basically the same thing that OP did. I didn't want to hijack that thread so I started a new one.
      The client and I are in disagreement (so what's new about that?) about the way the columns (6x6 PT southern yellow pine) are installed at grade. He wants to just dig hole, put them in, and 'fill-er up with dirt'! In our non-code area, the frost line is only 12" and the "good-old boy way" it's usually done is fill the hole with concrete after the post is set. I prefer to use a pier form like Bigfoot or similar with a Simpson column base. How do you guys who design-build pole barns normally install the columns? This project will be a utility building so more budget conscious.
      Thanks, Mike

      I don't know when or how it happened, but now my whole building is defined as a single room on the first floor. I believe this is what's causing the missing parts of the first floor walls in the garage.
