Residential Drafter

Have you ever planned a design for your ideal home? Do you like working with software? If so, you might be an ideal candidate for a career in the housing industry.

Residential drafters work with concepts, plans, AutoCAD software, drawings and elevations to bring clients' new housing and renovation projects to life. They also assist in preparing estimates for costing based on materials required to build a client's home and liaise closely with builders and contractors. Most residential drafters use computer aided design and drafting systems to prepare drawings, however manual drafting may still be used in certain applications.
