I have been researching on how to design and build a house. I want to learn all the ins and outs of home construction here in Hawaii. My design application of choice is Chief Architect, a CAD program widely used in the home renovation industry. I'm researching the best design for ease of building, cost effectiveness, energy efficiency, and to be environmentally friendly.
Final revision of floor plan and amenities wish list. Start working on construction drawings, material lists, and appliance list.
