Meet our Guest 

Rene Rabbitt

Robin grew up in Oakland California and went into building custom homes in the Bay Area right out of high school. He'd been a builder for over 21 years in residential remodeling, which is what inspired him to start designing. Fourteen years ago he had the opportunity to do some freelance design for an architecture firm that was using Chief Architect X3. He fell in love with the software and its ability to create realistic visual depictions of the kitchens and baths he would then get to build.

He is licensed Contractor (B100338), Cad Drafter, Designer, 3d Artist, Media Producer, Photographer, Computer Tech, Production Manager, and a perpetual Student. He is also the owner of Rabbit Design.
