I am interested in hiring a full time drafter for my home building company and would prefer someone familiar with Softplan. I am located in Eastern NC. Where should I advertise this position to best find a Softplan capable person? What should i expect to pay for a qualified person? Thanks

A couple of possibilities for you.  Check your plumbers, electricians, building supply companies if they have seen any plans that they work from that indicate what software the designer uses.  I put what version I created the plan on my plans.  Also you might check with your local builders association and see if any designers are part of the association.  Call each one listed and ask them.  Also perhaps an inquiry into Softplan headquarters can give names of softplan users in the area.

Jeremy,

This forum is probably one of your best bets if you're looking for someone who uses Softplan regularly.  I have also seen ads on a wide variety of job posting sites (Monster, Indeed, Craigslist) that indicate Softplan experience is helpful or even necessary.  Pay is going to vary widely with experience.   In the event that you consider outsourcing rather than hiring, I'd be interested in speaking with you.  - tom@exarts.com .

Nice to see you looking for help with your projects. I believe I would be a good fit for you and could help you out.

 

I have been using Softplan for 24 years and I am a plus subscriber. I don't have an updated resume because I have been on my own for the last

14 years. But I can give you a breakdown of my experience.

 

Out of college I went to work for a floor and roof truss manufacturer.

That gave me good structure experience. After a year and a half of doing that I found a job at a lumber yard / construction company doing take off and then designing all the homes that the construction side built. I managed the inventory and designed the homes for 10 years. I even worked on site when they needed the help. I then decided to go on my own in

2004 and have been designing and working with contractors ever since.

 

I have worked with a lot of local builders, realtors and home owners over the past 24 years of being in the trade.

 

This is my website for you to look at and to get an idea of what kind of houses I design. http://www.prullcustomdesigns.com/

 

I am also a Certified Professional Building Designer and take my profession very seriously. My plans are the best in the area and that's what I strive for.

 

I have uploaded a recent job that you can look over and see what kind of work I do.

https://dl.dropboxus.../Shea-11x17.pdf

 

I have plenty of references that I could give you but I think it would be best for us to talk first before I start giving out names of my builders and clients.

 

I have 1 employee that I employ and plan on adding another. So, you wouldn't get lost in my other projects. I would treat you just like my other valuable clients and get your projects done in a timely manner.

 

 

It's hard to explain everything that I have done and what I do over an e-mail, so if you like what I typed above, go ahead and give me a call when you have time. We can discuss your needs at more length at that time.

 

 

Thanks,

I am responding to your request for someone to design or draft for you in Softplan.

I have been using Softplan since 1999 and have been designing homes and additions since 1975

Additionally I have been a builder since 1979, making me more in-tune with design needs and requirements.

You can check out my website at Home Designs by Bruno - the new version is being uploaded next week.

Currently I service a number of contractors as wells as the homeowner, but as a work-a-holic I find the need to do more

I can provide you with sample projects if you like. I can provide from just what you need for your projects up to a complete permit and construction package.

 

If I can be of assistance to you, please call me - info below.

Hi Jeremy,

 

You may have already found someone to help you by now but just wanted to throw my hat in the mix too if you are a still looking.  Not sure where you are in Eastern, NC but I'm an ECU grad and lived in Greenville for several years.  Now based closer to Raleigh.  We do stock and custom work, focusing on Universal Design.  If you are still looking for design help, I would be happy to discuss when you have a moment.

 

Thanks,

Would you be interested in working with someone in a different state? I have used Softplan since 1990 and currently updated to 2018. I have stopped building custom homes and am looking for a part time situation.  I am in the Dallas - Ft. Worth area. carrdenman@gmail.com
