Oh so my best bet would be to hire an actual architect I see, thanks for the heads up.
Of course, you can sketch up what you want. But for the detailed plan it's better to add the specialist. It saves time and uses his experience. After all: where you think of one house only HE already made dozens. 🙂
That sounds logically reasonable, I definitely try sketching up my dream home or using a software but I also try to find an actual architect to help finalize and redo the design while telling them specifically want I want my house to be.
I probably try sketching my dream house at, I tried attempting the SketchUp and I honestly don't know what I am doing.
So yes I just grab paper and try drawing them while telling the architect what I really want the house to look like.
Thanks I definitely remember
Good luck on getting your dream home. I live in a nice home, but it's nothing close to what I drew in my senior year drafting class.
Do you have a dream home, you eventually want to have?
No, it's too late in my life and I'm too comfortable here to ever move again. A close friend of mine designed his own home. It's stunning. A main house, plus guest quarters, swimming pools (more than one), tennis courts and a stable for his ponies- not horses, ponies. Of course he owns a multi million dollar business while I was an engineer for a mid sized city. Even though I don't live in the mansion I envisioned, things worked out fine.
Wow your friend mansion sounds phenomenal, he even has ponies and everything.
His wife, who is a trophy wife (no sense portending otherwise) likes horses, so she insisted on a stable for ponies. His business is computers. When we were in high school in the mid 70's and he described emails, social media, digital photo transfers- all of the things that we take for granted today, I thought that he was nuts. I was going to make my career the same as the ancient Egyptians and Romans, as a civil engineer. He got rich, I got a nice pension. Opportunity really does knock only only once. You're a young man, so don't be afraid to take a risk of two. If things don't work out, there's plenty of time to start over. Just from our casual chat, I think you'll do just fine in life.
I actually do want to get into the business world too but I am thinking of media and entertainment, so I been searching up schools like Full Sail.
And thanks for the advice
That's a nice change of pace. Usually I just get a condescending, "Okay, Boomer," and ignored.

Thanks sometimes I honestly just don't know how people does it. So thanks for telling me that there are software I can use and I would definitely try finding architect when it actually time.
I designed my own house with the help of an architect and had it built. It took longer and cost more than expected, but was totally worth it. Best of luck to you!
Thanks! I definitely try seeing the CAD program
someone mentioned SketchUp, thats a fun one for 3d, i found myself using a more simple one that was 2d that was less pretty but easier to use. Still, SketchUp is popular and there are lots of youtube tutorials for it
Cool I definitely look into CAD and SketchUp and thanks everyone.
Drafting aka Mechanical Drawing or Engineering Drawing has lots of free textbooks online.Thomas E. French wrote textbooks about it over 100 years ago and his books are STILL being used."French & Svensen" (for Carl Svensen) is something every drafter knows like a car mechanic knows what Chevy is.Here are two free books I downloaded.www.google.com/.../1yBIAAAAIAAJ?hl=enwww.google.com/.../RixIAAAAIAAJ?hl=en
Thanks for the recommendation
Thanks I definitely try finding graph paper or blueprint websites. I probably think I may have graph paper already if not I just can purchase some from the dollar store.
Thanks I try looking into them
