Before I enrolled in Architecture School I helped a family that had their house gutted by an attic fire by drawing up new floorplans and elevations for their contractor and bank use.
My last duties as a draftsman/illustrator at Willamette Industries was to interview all of the departments of the administrative staff at the mill, spaceplan and layout a new building at the Campti, La paper mill. This building was built for just under one million dollars.
