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.”

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 since 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…
