I saw your add about hiring a couple of years ago...wish i saw it then.  


I'm a home owner and i'm designing our next home.   Which will be our forever home -retirement- in SC. We currently living in Gilboa (about 1 hr   SW of Albany). 


I'm using chief Architect Home Designer but the program has limitations.  the main issue I'm having is with the roofs.  The problem is due to a 45 degree V shape and a couple of bump outs.  


 I'm looking for someone that can assist me with the roof design.  the limitations in the home designer make it impossible to move ridge lines, have different pitches, etc.  But I'm confident that if uploaded into the professional version it can be done.   Do you provide these services?

      We are a busy remodeling company in NE Ohio and can’t keep up with the demand. I am searching for a company or person to help me with sketches throughout the year. Our projects consist of kitchens, bathrooms, basements, additions, and small commercial remodeling. 
      I am open to ideas and look forward to discussing my needs in further detail.

      Award winning kitchen design studio seeking a junior designer on a part time consulting basis to take on site measurements and initial drafting of kitchens.  Candidate will need to have on the ground presence in Lower Westchester New York at jobsite at least for measuring; will need to do site visits, measure spaces, and draft initial cut at kitchen designs and prepare 3D architect layout documents for client review using our studio templates.  Additional responsibilities are a possibility if candidate is interested, including client follow up work, interior design material selection and ordering, layout, etc.  I am flexible on job scope and happy to work with the right person to tailor the responsibilities.
