Each designer on our website offers different home plan package options, while one designer may offer you to purchase as few as one set of prints, another designer may require you order a minimum of four sets of prints. Likewise not all designers offer the same options when it comes to PDF, CAD files, or materials lists.
To submit for building permits and for construction and pricing you will most likely need printed sets of your home plans. Printed sets can be ordered from our website, or you can purchase PDF or CAD files and have printed sets made locally at your preferred print shop. We recommend the purchase of PDF files as they are becoming an industry standard, allowing subcontractors and suppliers to price your project without printed house plan sets. CAD files are needed if you are having a local designer, architect or engineer modify the home plans to bring them up to local building code requirements or to meet your specific needs.
If you find the same house plan or garage plan featured on another website at a lower price we will beat the competitors price by 5% of the total price, not just 5% of the difference! Our guarantee extends up to 30 days after your home plan purchase, so you can buy now with confidence.
Any of the stock home, garage or multifamily plans on our website can be modified to meet your specific requirements. By purchasing the PDF or CAD files for the plan you wish to modify, you will receive the rights from the original designer to modify the plans. You can either have that dome by a local draftsperson, designer or architect, or you can contact us for a free estimate on modifying the plans.
Materials lists are available for many of our garage plans, house plans, or multifamily plans. Materials lists are a great budgeting tool as they list most of the materials needed to build the home, they can be sent to suppliers and lumber yards along with the home plans to get pricing. By sending the materials list to multiple suppliers you are able to compare the pricing for the various items and save on your material costs.
