Examples of My Freelance Projects


My freelance examples shown here are 'residential' construction only (for which no licensed architect is needed) & constructed from my typical 'Builder's Sets' of drawings. I also have many years experience working on 'commercial' projects, under the direction of architects. I started my career working on Health Care facilities, & I spent many years working on K-12 Educational Buildings & other Public Works Projects. I've worked on a variety of 'Commercial' Projects along the way....almost every type of building at some point. I've also done a variety of miscellaneous freelance work for architects & engineers; from detailing to shop drawings, along with a variety of random CAD & 3D modeling projects for individuals, companies, & organizations; from construction-related work to exhibit layout to product development. I have many other samples that I can show upon request. These pages will give you a good idea of my skills.



Most of my freelance projects start with my clients' designs and ideas. I assist in making those ideas a reality.

Below are examples of several of my projects. Drawing images are taken directly from my CAD drawings.

A new Custom Home located on Sunset Mountain overlooking Downtown
Asheville, NC. I started with the owner's rough sketches & design ideas.
I did the ArchiCAD Model & Drawings, along with developing the design.
