As a draftsman, I charge on a time basis.  I have seen cases where 15 sheets of drawings could have been done on 3.  I have been asked to do complex exploded views with a bare minimum of information or simple block diagrams.  Sometimes the drawings are supplied other times we have to figure them out from rough sketches.  If you want a good job with some thinking behind it, it all takes time.

Hi asdfg,
 
I must caution that this may not be the best way to get into the patent drafting career, with little else.
 
Working from home leaves you without constant available help and guidance.  I suggest you seek out an experienced practitioner who would be willing to review your work, and give you pointers.  You may have to set aside a nice chunk of what you take home to pay for this guidance...or you may be lucky to find someone who will do it out of the kindness of their heart, as I found once upon a days ago.
 
Good luck!  It only gets easier.
