Lawrence J. Jaworski won 3rd with his rustic home addition

Remodel/ Addition design by Strongwood Log Home Company. The client was looking to build a hunting cabin; however, the new structure had to attache to the existing garage. The new structure is a 5,677 sq. ft. ranch style design with 12x12 heavy timber structure with a bark siding. The exterior of the existing garage is going to be renovated to match the new structure along with adding a living space above.

Lawrence won 3rd in the Chief Architect Remodel-Addition Design Contest! He has been drawn to design from a young age and is now impressing customers with 3D home designs created using Chief Architect.

 

“I had an interest in designing at a young age and took designing classes in school. In high school, took all the classes they had, and my senior year they had to create a class for me to take. I went on to college and got an associate’s degree in architecture. Continue reading…

Ciara Cuddihy-Hernandez won 2nd with her complete home remodel in Portland, Oregon

This remodel is for a home in Portland, Oregon. Our client actually grew up in this home and wants to do a complete remodel. We are adding an addition to the front on the house to gain extra space for a larger master bedroom with en suite master bath. We are also opening up the main floor completely to have an open plan kitchen and living space. Finally, we are changing the roof style from flat to a shed roof with vaulted ceilings in the living/kitchen area to add a greater sense of space and utilize the natural light as these rooms are south facing.

Ciara won 2nd in the Chief Architect Remodel-Addition Design Contest! Originally from Ireland, she is now the project designer for John Webb Construction & Design in Eugene, Oregon.

 

“I am originally from Ireland and moved to Eugene, Oregon 5 year ago. I started designing in school and attended the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland where I received a Bachelor of Design specializing in glass.  I started interior design about a year ago and have been working for John Webb Construction and Design June of 2017.

“I have been using Chief Architect for 3 months. Our company decided to start using Chief Architect because of the great features it has.” Continue reading…

Paul Fread wins 1st place with his Kitchen Addition

Grey home design with white trim and a recent kitchen addition.

Paul Fread won 1st place in the Chief Architect Remodel/Addition Design Contest. Paul and his crew have a passion for working on vintage character homes and bringing them new life. This Kitchen Addition was a great example of their work.

 

“First, everyone at Original Roots is here because we love what we do and we enjoy working with each other and serving our great clients.  We work on Design+Build projects ranging from bathrooms and kitchens to major additions and pop-tops – and anything in between.  We focus on Denver’s old character homes and we have an intimate working knowledge of the history and typical challenges that these awesome vintage homes present.  The fun part is working through those challenges to consistently create beautiful, well-designed, and solidly built finished projects.  It’s really hard work and we love it.

“Several things make us unique from other companies in our industry beyond the typical claims of quality, timeliness, and ability to stay on budget.  First, we are truly a Design+Build firm with professional/degreed Designers under the same roof as our field crew of Carpenters and Project Supervisors.  Secondly, we offer a completely honest and realistic construction cost range after an initial consultation. We do this for a few reasons:  we want our clients to get a realistic sense of costs early on in the process to help guide their decision making and ensure that we are designing – and ultimately, building – something within their means.  Also, we want to foster an atmosphere where we’re able to do what we say we can from the beginning, leaving folks happy in the end.

Danielle Burger – Featured NKBA Study Guide Designer

By Adrean Stephenson

 

It felt a little like cheating when I opened up Danielle Burger’s winning Small Bath plan and began transitioning it for our NKBA Study Guide project.

 

Danielle has been using Chief Architect since 2015 and made beautiful work of her bath design using the software. I simply asked to start from the plan file and then made some edits that matched her drawings to the drafting style of the other designs in our project.
