   I'm not necessarily looking to change gears with my work situation at this point, but one never knows the extent of an opportunity until it is explored.  


  I am an experienced Chief user.  In the last 12 years I have designed hundreds of custom homes in the Pacific Northwest - everything from small entry homes to the million(s) dollar dream homes.  I have coordinated all phases of design from site feasibility, client interaction, cost analysis, preliminary design, blueprint drafting, engineering, permitting, and on site construction support.  I am currently a Certified Professional Building Designer and have held that certification for 9 years now.  I have worked for several custom builders in the past and managed their in house design departments.  I currently work for a custom builder and work out of my home office as self employed.

  I have used Chief for every phase of design.  The power of its 3D capabilities works well in capturing the imagination of the client and solidifying their dreams.  I also have some experience with Lumion, which can further supplement the visualization aspect of 3D design.  I have trained others to use Chief and I feel very comfortable with the software.


  Again, I do not know if there are any mutually beneficial opportunities until details are discussed.  If you are interested, please contact me at

      My name is Jared Smith, I just started studying “Product development and Innovation” at SDU in Odense, Denmark.
      Me and my group has been assigned a semester project, which consists of us redesigning an Architects lamp. 
      We’ve been handed a lamp and it is our task to come up with a new design and new features to add to the lamp.
      For us to understand the market we’re reaching out to several architects around the world, to get a picture of, what opinions and ideas are required to create a good working space. 
      My question for you now is, what requirement does a lamp have to fulfil to optimize working on projects? Which lighting is good and does the design matter? We appreciate any ideas, suggestions and/or opinions.
      We hope you could find time, to help and we’re looking forward to hearing from you. 
      Kind regards, Jared Smith

      I am a many year Chief Architect user as a non-professional designer. We have built some of my designs (including the house I have just sold and need to replace) but now I need to convert a design to a fully engineered, green project quickly. The design is single family, ~3,000 sq ft with a mix of carefully chosen pedestrian and high end details. We need plans for bids in two weeks and engineered plans in a month. I know this is quick but I did not expect to sell the house. I have done all of the work relating to lighting, views, wind, snow load, etc. and have the design hammered out but I cannot complete the fully engineered plans. Please contact me if you are interested.
