We are looking to better understand our customers that are Design companies.  That is, companies that create designs for others, builders or individuals, as a business – not designers that are employed directly by the Builder.

 

If you belong to this user group, how many designs do you produce each year?

Gary, If you feel comfortable with replying here as Don and Keith have, that would be fine to.  We are just trying to research, connect with our customers to better understand the market they are providing services to.  Thanks.

Approx. 75 full homes per year.

I no longer do any small additions or renovations.

Most are 2,500 sf or larger.

We did a little over 200 projects last year. The vast majority of our projects are new homes of various size but we do a few additions, sheds, cabins, and storage buildings as well.

Sole proprietor doing about 50 projects a year ranging anywhere from new product for builders, lot specifics and custom homes and remodels.   Partnering with a builder to go into Design-Build so hopefully while not necessarily increase number of projects will increase the use of Softplan in using CDs, 3D modeling and softlist.
