Debra placed 1st in the Chief Architect Kitchen/Bath & Interior Design Contest. She develops house plans and has been a Chief Architect customer for almost 20 years!
“I’m from south Mississippi. I live/work in a little town called Wiggins since my husband and I got married 32 years ago. I’m a Certified Professional Building Designer and a professional member of the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD).
“I started what would be my “career” after taking an architectural drafting class in high school. After college I started working for an engineering firm, drawing road projects, subdivisions, and local projects “on the board.” After working with them 8 years (and doing house plans at night) I decided to leave there and open DesignHouse Inc – House Plans in 1991, full-time. I knew if I was going pursue this design field I would have to transition off the board onto a CAD program. I’ve used several programs over the years but nothing has offered my clients the views that Chief does.
“The best thing about Chief is the 3D, of course. A lot of clients don’t know what the symbols or lines (on a set of plans) are but when I tilt up the plan (so the clients can see “into” the house) the 3d makes it real for them. I work with clients all over the US and everyone is amazed that they can see what their house will look like before they drive the first nail.”
