Course Objectives:

Foot for Foot bathrooms can be one of the most expensive rooms in your client's home.

It's your job as a designer to help your clients meet their requirements while staying within their budget.

Creating the best design requires extensive knowledge of available products and materials, design guidelines, interviewing techniques, and presentation methods to demonstrate your ideas to your clients.

Chief Architect will help you show your clients exactly what you have in mind with its hundreds of tools all while creating the working drawings needed by everyone involved in the project.

In this course, you will come away with what you need to better recommend the best materials and products for your clients and how to present your ideas using Chief Architect software.

You'll also receive many templates, symbols, recordings, and other content to help you set up and optimize Chief Architect. By offering recordings of these topics we can focus more on the Art of Bathroom Design in our live sessions and less time on setting up Chief Architect.
