By Kendra Dorosh

Shona Griffin places 2nd in the Chief Architect Kitchen/Bath & Interior Design Contest. She’s based in Atlanta, Georgia and owns a small home-based drafting and permitting service called Key Designs.

 

 

“I have an Associate’s Degree in Computer-Aided Science and a Bachelor’s Degree in Project Management. I was introduced to Chief Architect Software through an engineering firm that I worked for, at that time they were operating Chief Architect Version X7. I have also learned Revit, but I prefer Chief Architect and have now been using it for 14 years. I operate a small home-based drafting and permitting service, which is growing rapidly.”

 

 

 

 

 

My customers absolutely love seeing the renderings of their homes before construction.

We really enjoyed seeing Shona’s work.  Her designs and renderings are truly inspiring.  Check out more examples of her work below!

Brian Bone wins 1st Place with his spa-inspired master bathroom design

Master bath with walk-in glass shower, double vanity and sloped ceiling.

By Kendra Dorosh

Brian Bone wins 1st place in the Chief Architect Kitchen/Bath & Interior Design Contest. Brian’s passion for 3D home design has driven him from a young age. He now creates beautiful renderings for his clients, such as this winning bathroom design.

“I am from Wisconsin but have been living in Wilmington, North Carolina for the last 8 years now. I started designing when I was a kid but used Legos back then. As I got older I discovered design software, but the cheap kind at the store. After a few years of using that I found Chief Architect Software and quickly realized it was better than the rest. From there, I started working my way up the product line. While in college, I used Chief Architect Software to help show off my design presentation boards. After ten plus years of using the software, I landed my job because I was able to create 3D walkthroughs and home designs for customers in order to show them what their dream home could look like. I’ve been a big fan of Chief Architect software and when I’ve needed assistance, their service representatives have always been helpful.”

See the full spread of winners and project information in the January/February issue of NKBA Innovation + Inspiration.
