Your Plans: What you Get

Included with your purchase of house plans are:

A black and white 3D view of the front of your design
Foundation plan
Floor Plans
Roof plan
Elevation views
Cross section view
Wall detail drawing

With the purchase of any of our plan sets, we will email you PDF files of your plans, personalized with your name and address. With these, you can go to most copy stores and have as many sets of plans printed as are needed.

Our plans typically contain 6 or 7 drawing sheets. These contain the information needed to specify the structure and dimensions of your future home. They do not typically contain any details regarding exterior or interior finishes, or specify plumbing fixtures, cabinets, etc. We leave these details to you and your builder to determine. You will have everything you need to build the house in most locations.

In addition to your house plans, you may need to have a site plan prepared by a local survey company. Depending on where you live, you may need to alter the foundation design and/or increase the size of some roof beams. If you are purchasing a custom plan, we will create the design based on the information you can provide us.

We do not supply any Electrical, Plumbing, or HVAC plans. Your subcontractors will typically "mark-up" a copy of the plans and configure these systems to meet your needs and the requirements of local building code officials.

Some areas have building codes requiring any plans to be reviewed and possibly stamped by a local professional with a license in that state. Our plans to not carry a professional stamp. A structural engineer can provide any load calculations required as well as a professional stamp to meet these local requirements. If you are not sure of local requirements, check with your local building permit department.

Multi-family, light commercial and agricultural buildings

**Please note, while our primary business is supplying plans for individual homes, we also design other structures such as duplexes, agricultural and light commercial buildings for customers. This is also dependent upon the laws and requirements of your location. If you have an interest in discussing a design for any of these buildings, please call or email us.

Green Building: We emphasize green building (energy and material conservation) in all our projects. 50% of all the energy used in the United States is for heating, cooling and lighting our homes and businesses. Designing our homes for higher energy efficiency helps to conserve our energy resources for tomorrow as well as reduce our individual pollution contribution today. Higher energy efficiency also helps you save money on your monthly energy bills. Our standard plans utilize 2x6 frame construction. This allows you to add 42% more insulation to the walls and conserve more energy. Upon request, we will modify your plans to utilize ICF or SIP construction for even higher energy efficiency. For more information on building a more energy efficient home, see our Green Building page and the Building a Better, Greener Home article.

Solar Ready: Our designs typically incorporate "Solar Ready" features, assuming this is feasible for your location (latitude, orientation, etc.). This simply means that we specify to have components such as conduits and/or piping installed during construction that will make it much easier to install either a photovoltaic or solar water heating systems to your home at some point in the future. This only costs a few dollars up front but can make installing your solar system less expensive in the future.
