Jennifer placed 2nd in the Chief Architect Residential Design Contest! Her passion for design began when she was 10 years old and has flourished in her career as a home designer.
“Unofficially, I started drawing house plans on graph paper when I was 10 years old, and I knew that designing was something I wanted to pursue as a profession. Officially, I started designing in 2005, when I began working for and training with a local designer in my hometown of Memphis, TN. In 2010, I began doing freelance residential design while also pursuing a career in another field. I founded Ideal House Plans, LLC in 2017 and am currently working on growing the business.
“I’ve been a Chief Architect customer since May 2018. Earlier in the year, I knew that I would need quality 3D renderings to post on the new website, so I began my search for the right software to use. I downloaded several trial versions of various software to determine what would work best for me. In the end, I chose Chief Architect because of its realistic appearance, reasonable price, and user-friendliness.”
