CHIP HUDSON (Founder of Portfolio Home Plans)

Principal/Owner: Hudson Home Design

Fred Hudson, widely known as "Chip," extends a warm welcome and gratitude for visiting the Portfolio Home Plans website. As the Owner of Hudson Home Designs, he wears multiple hats – an artist, residential designer, CAD programmer, and a newfound passion for web design.

Chip Hudson ascribes his passion for design to having spent much of his childhood on construction sites with his father. Hudson's father owned his own business in the construction industry in their hometown of Prattville, Al. So it is no surprise that Hudson absolutely loves what he does.

In addition to his professional pursuits, Chip, in his spare time, channels his creativity into building custom furniture and continuously expanding his knowledge within the construction market.

Remaining at the forefront of the ever-changing styles, products, and resources in the construction world is a priority for Chip. His extensive involvement as the past President of the Alabama Society of American Institute of Building Design for over three years as well as his role as the Eastern Regional Director have provided him with opportunities to collaborate with industry leaders in innovation and home design, to include even taking on the role of a judge for two consecutive years in the Home Builders Remodeling competition. Chip has also shared his expertise by teaching 3-D technology at Chattahoochee Valley Community College and serves as an authorized distributor for Artlantis and Graphisoft U.S.A.
