I also am a draughtsman. We are the unseen people who, along with structural engineers, make architects' fairyland ideas workable.

... after the surveyor has made sure it's being built in the right place [;)]

We've just been talking to our 14 year old son who this week has to choose his options for next year and eventually wants to become an architect! (at this stage).
His father is an engineer but says he should've done architecture as architects he's worked with have told him he would have made a good one.

My soon-to-be-son-in-law is a quantity surveyor. One of the other 'invisible' links in the chain. Handy to have in the family though. :)

All handy folk to have, but I've got to say a Plumber and a Joiner would be top of my list right now :D . Though a Draughtperson would also be handy[;)]

There is an award winning house on our street, the 2nd owners have spent several years trying to get heating and cooling systems working properly in it, as it is not designed for good airflow, so is hard to heat in winter and boiling hot in summer, it has cost them a fortune.

Ah! Exactly what I was looking for - a pisshead to design to my new curtain-wall highrise!

The house sounds like mine in regards to heating and cooling! Although mine isnt award winning.... Mum and Dad (got to love mum and dads) have stepped in and offered to help with insulation and heat pumps, and a new deck... and bifold doors to get to the deck... Its all too much and we keep finding new things to add to the project... new curtains, outdoor lights, having to repaint the house (outside and partially inside), arg! And then I have to plan out a proper landscape/ garden to go with my initial vision!

On the plus side I have an electrician as a brother inlaw.

The most beautiful house I have ever lived in was a (fortunately rented) expensive house in an expensive street. It looked stunning. And it was horrible to live in.

Giant picture windows facing North and West - but they didn't open, and there were no eves to shade them in summer. They looked onto a giant deck that reflected even more heat into the house. And there wasn't a single place in the whole house where you could open two opposing windows to get a breeze through.

My time in that house was a wonderful education in how not to design a house. It could have been twice as functional in half the size if it had been properly designed.

:D :D ahh Lindeggs. .. reminds me a bit of my first house.. it won some award back in the '50's..kind of a funky place by the 80's..but wow, realy high celings and open ( no ceiling space .. just timber then iron )..impossible to heat, high big windows, impossible to clean etc etc...
i now have a 1903 villa..and probably with little thought to design, it is an easy house to live in.. double hung windows are the best invention ever, drop the top to let out heat or let in breeze.. nice big airy rooms.. probably the only thing that bugs me abit is the long dark hall, but leave the door open and plenty of light[;)]
