View the plans in 2D and 3D and walk through your selected plan set design using the BIMx viewer.
Note: We highly recommend using the mobile device app over the desktop viewer.
CAD files (in DWG format) for your local design consultants for design coordination.
Customize your plan set design including up to 8 hours of our design services (additional at $125/hr). When you order a customization services block of time, you will be prompted to send us your intended modification ideas. We will review and develop a time and cost estimate.
You can use these drawings for a preliminary review with your local team to ensure that your project will meet all feasibility criteria. Your local jurisdiction (i.e. Town, City, or County), property deeds, and neighborhood or community boards may have regulations that may restrict certain aspects of our designs. A local general contractor may also be able offer guidance on feasibility and compliance with regulations for your specific project. Please note that all sales are final (see License Terms below for more information) and it is important that you and your team review your local regulations and restrictions before making any final purchases.
We recommend viewing the E-Model (available with the Standard set package) associated with the plan set to gain a full understanding of the design. This 3D digital model will allow you to virtually tour the building using a free BIMx app.
Review all of your drawings and decide if customized design modifications are necessary. If you desire customization, we will use the Schematic Drawing set as a base for modification.
Once the design modifications are made to the Schematic Drawing Documents (if necessary), we can make the updates to your Construction Drawing Documents and start to engage your local general contractor and consultants.
Your property survey should be available with your property deed. We recommend that you have your survey updated to be current and to include any additional tree, topography, utility, boundary, and setback/ easement information. Your consultants will want a digital version (CAD format) of your survey, so be sure to ask your local surveyor if they can make this available.
A local general contractor can help you with pricing and consultant coordination. While you can get rough estimate pricing now, you will need all consultant drawings for accurate pricing or bidding, which will occur in Step 3 (see below for more detailed information).
Structural Engineer/ Geotechnical Engineer:
Your local Structural Engineer will require a soils analysis by a Geotechnical Engineer to determine the requirements for your foundation design. Once you have your soils report, the Structural Engineer can start designing foundation and framing plans and details as necessary to meet the building needs under your local conditions.
Although it is not typical for most residential projects, you may want to consult with a Mechanical/ Electrical/ Plumbing Engineer, especially for specialized systems such as geothermal heating & cooling, solar energy, rainwater harvesting, etc.
A Land Surveyor or Civil Engineer can help update the survey to include your building location on your site. A Civil Engineer may also only be necessary for certain site drainage requirements, site utility design (water, wastewater, electric, etc), site infrastructure (roads/ driveways, parking, etc), or other specialty site systems. Some of these site items can be designed by a Landscape Architect. Landscape Architects can also help with trees and plants, and other hardscape features such as decks/ patios, pergolas/ trellises, fences, etc.
Other consultants to consider may be an Interior Designer, Audio/ Visual Consultant, Pool Consultant, or an Energy/ Green Consultant.
Check with your local jurisdiction for proper permitting requirements. Aside from your local city, town, or county, you may have an HOA, historic, or other community boards that also may require design approval. Please check with your local jurisdiction to verify proper design professional needs and requirements.
Your local general contractor can use the Construction Drawing Documents to give you proper pricing. You may also wish to distribute the set to several different general contractors to engage a bid process to ensure lowest possible pricing.
Your general contractor will want to know material and product selections (also known as 'specifications') for pricing and construction. You can purchase our Selections Guide to help give you some of our best recommended selections along with different options. Otherwise you can work with an Interior Designer or collaborate with your general contractor to coordinate with local vendors and suppliers for proper selections. Your general contractor can also allot certain allowances (i.e. "$20,000 for appliances") for unknown items when doing pricing estimating which can allow you to make final selection decisions later in the process.
Your general contractor may also want to know the construction details for more accurate pricing (available in Standard Set packages). Construction Detail Drawings have best recommended construction methods and techniques along with different options to account for a variety of different materials and products. Many of these detail options are contingent upon your selections. For example, a window jamb will need to be installed and detailed differently in a wall with siding as its finish rather than a masonry finish.
Once you receive your permit you will be ready to begin construction. We will not be available for construction administration services during construction and will need to rely on your general contractor and local team.
Building construction costs depend on many factors. We recommend speaking with a local contractor about general costs of construction, market prices, and local conditions. Fixture, finish, and equipment selections can have a varied impact on the overall costs of your project. Our Selections Guide will have selection options at different price points to allow you to customize your unit.
Site conditions drastically affect overall costs as well. For example, soil conditions can affect your foundation design. We recommend speaking with a local structural engineer who will be able to recommend a geotechnical engineer to obtain a soils report. Topography, trees, and various infrastructure elements, including, roads/ driveways, drainage, landscape, utilities (water, waste water, cable, phone, electric, etc) are all major factors to consider in site construction costs.
We offer Customization Services which include up to 8 hours of our design services (additional at $125/hr).
Purchasing the Construction Drawings allows you the license to build one unit on your site. You may send or reproduce drawings for contractors and consultants involved with your project. Please review the License Agreement below for full terms and conditions.
Developers and individuals seeking to do multiple units, please contact us for bulk order pricing.
All sales are final. We recommend verifying costs and building regulations with your local contractors, boards, and other regulating bodies prior to making any plan set product purchases. We also recommend getting pre-approved construction lending prior to making any plan set product purchases.
While these items are not available for individual purchase, you can upgrade your Light set to a Standard set at anytime.
Our plan set packages do not include any landscape, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing or any other specialty engineering or consultant drawings. You will need a Structural Engineer to properly size and design your foundation and framing plans and a Land Surveyor to perform or update your property survey. Other consultants may be either desired or required depending on your local jurisdiction and needs. Please see our 'Process' section (above) for more information about the potential wants and needs of other professionals and consultants.
Beyond our Customization Services available for purchase, we are available for consultation on an hourly basis. You can read our Design Guide to better understand our process working with custom projects. However, we will not be available for local permitting and construction administration services during construction in which you will need to rely on your local team. If at any time you feel the need to request our services, please contact us at email@example.com and we can further discuss your specific needs.
All drawings are delivered in a digital formats. Our PDF drawings are sized to be scaled and printed at 11” x 17”. Our CAD files are vector based drawings in DWG format to be used by your consultants in AutoCAD and most other standardized CAD programs. Our E-Model is delivered in BIMx format which can be viewed via free BIMx viewer.
