For those who may want to use TC for architectural plans, here is how I've used it. Nothing fancy. (6 x plans in the PDF)

Nicely done, thanks for posting the plans.

Thanks for sharing these. The shaded elevations are a nice touch.

Amazing PDF's, very clean drawings and fantastic renderings.
Did you save as PDF or did you print with PDF 995?

Hi Stefaan, thanks for that.

I use "PDF Redirect" which is a really nice free PDF printing program. It allows you to merge many PDF's into one PDF. I find it to be much better than PDF995. Here's the link: http://www.exp-systems.com/

Yawning Dog: Nice project. Good presentation indeed. Nit picking: you might like to look at the attached. When a design is asymetric  it can be a real challenge to decide where the necessary compromise should lay.

Hi Alan, thanks for your comment, but the example you show is the existing "mock Tudor" style which is definitely not staying. The proposed style is either tile hanging or render...or even better, knock down & build a completely new house. Haven't designed that yet.

Thanks for the drawings, I am in the process of remodeling our house. You have gave me some great ideas in how to draw my plans. I hope you don't mind me stealing from you some of your ideas.

You did a great job of showing the lay of the land and will have to experiment with doing that also. Thanks again for the fine drawings.

"Nothing fancy" is pretty fancy !  Very thorough, nicely done pdf package - this is the kind of thing that wins projects.  I use Acrobat (still on v5) to assemble multi-page pdfs for bid submittals.  The site layout drawings are impressive, as are the renderings.  Cool.
