Whoa - your best bet is starting with small projects for friends and relatives.

Upwards of 90% of homes are no longer designed by architects - many builders will give you a design simply because they want you to hire them to build it.

Very, very hard to survive ad a one-man firm - I worked at a large engineering/architecture/construction management firm and a fair number of the senior employees had practiced on their own at some point but found it much easier to make a living by joining a big company.
