Chief Architect & Home Designer Training

for Interior Designers

We are all busy and sometimes those DIY videos are just too time consuming. If you're an Interior Designer, who owns (or thinking of purchasing) Chief Architect or Home Designer, but can't quite master the software on your own, I can help. I've been using Chief Architect for years, with previous experience using both Revit and AutoCAD LT. I know the tricks and tidbits that will help you easily transition to the intuitive world of Building Information Modeling (BIM).

As a fellow designer, and a visual learner, I’ve found that to get the most out of these sessions its best to learn while we work on one of YOUR projects and RECORD the session. This is all performed via Zoom. The recorded session is then emailed to you to rewatch and download as needed (hopefully sooner rather than later). The one-one-one training is directly tailored to your needs and how you learn best (virtually).

Starting in Fall 2019, I’ve added Online Group Training to the scope, after many requests! I’m excited to have the opportunity to help fellow designers dive a little deeper (or skin the top if you’re still in the shallow end of the modeling/rendering pool). Stay tuned for more classes and FUTURE courses in the wheel house! Oh, and be sure to check out some of my most read Blog posts to help you narrow down which software may be best for your design practice/firm!
