I'm in Central Oregon (Bend ish). I have 10acres of high desert I want to build a earthship style house on. Not full blown earthship, just using some of their tech. I'd like to do poured earth but rammed earth will probably be how I have to do is as I don't own a mixing truck.
I'm going to do it myself. I just need a architect to make the plans legit. I have it mostly planned out. I have no drawing skills so....
You may not need an Architect, in Australia a draftsman can draw it up for you.
Depending on the local authority your own drawings may be ok.
If you have graph paper its pretty straight forward.
A Building draftsman may be the title where you are

The Enemy of progress is the hope of a perfect plan
I can do a lot of stuff. Drawing is not one. I'd do it with no plans (in my head). But Oregon is horrible for custom DIY homes. Permit process is nightmare. So bad I almost want to move to AZ, almost. They want pro plans all drawn pro to check before they will even give a building permit. This issue might be the end of my plans as I don't have crazy architect $.
