Learn AutoCAD wink Get around 20ph plus.

Its fairly straight forward, just might need to brush up on technical info in relation to what you are drawing.

I charge about 15ph, extra if the client wants plots in B+W and even more if they want colour (colour plots are expensive).

You just need to find people who need a CAD draftsperson.

If you need more info just ask smile

AutoCAD is a technical drawing package, used mainly by design engineers and technicians. I use it daily as I'm a Highway Designer, but I also do work from home for anyone really. I have drawn anything from a dormer extension on a house to a water storage vessel. It just depends on your willingness to sit in front of the PC all day and draw what people tell you even if what they tell you is wrong.

Its not as a bigger deal as it sounds. The best way to imagine it is like a cleaver MS Paint. But instead of just an X/Y plane, it also has a Z value, in other words its 3D.

Not really. If you can use a mouse you can use AutoCAD.

Best thing to do would be find a torrent site with AutoCAD 2007 on it and just have a play with it until you get to grips with it. As I said above; once you understand it you will need to start writing to potential clients offering your CAD services. Start small, like a house extension or something similar.

For example, a house extension would only consist of an existing 'plan'(birds eye view) layout of the house and garden. A proposed layout and then several elevations of the house, both existing and proposed. The client should supply all the necessary dimensions for you to be able to draw it, so you shouldn't have to leave your desk at home.
