  • AutoCAD: Let me draft and/or help design your cabin.

    If any of you have detailed cabin plans that you'd like drafted up or rough cabin ideas you'd like help fleshing out, please let me know. I'm a licensed civil engineer and I'm trying to get a little more opportunities working on structural/architectural applications. Cabins would be a great opportunity since you usually don't have to pull permits or abide by IBC code. I can draft your plans for you and perform the code checks and load calcs just for my own practice. I'd like to do these for free just to get a chance to work in this area and it's best to not offer professional services in an area where I still need more experience. I'd like to eventually get my structural engineer designation but that's probably a decade out.

    If you have a different remote Alaskan project that you might need engineering support for, let me know as well. My day job as an FAA contractor gets me sent out all over Alaska on their dime. If I'm going to be nearby, I like to help out folks if I can. Somebody always seems to need a septic system engineered or a driveway permit pulled.

    Send me a PM or email andrewgray416@gmail.com if you have something you'd like me to look at.

    Wow, that sounds like a great opportunity for someone! Good prints usually equal a quality result, although beware of the learning curve on some programs....one of the places I'm building now, the owners drew up themselves....once I started standing the walls, based on the plan numbers, I ended up with 60" of headroom at the top of the stairs! Oops....back to the drawing board....

          I build on the southern kenai peninsula, but I'm available to consult on any residential or recreational building anywhere in the state...estimating, planning, design, etc....what's your project?
