House Plans Include

What is Included in Our Plans?

The construction blueprints are clear, concise and detailed. All blueprints are designed by professional architects and residential building designers. Each plan is designed to meet nationally recognized building codes. Blueprints will vary depending on the size and complexity of the home and the style of the individual designer. Each set may include the following elements:
1.  Exterior Elevations – show the front, rear and sides of the house, including exterior materials, details and measurements.
2.  Detailed Floor Plans – show the placement of interior walls and the dimensions for rooms, doors, windows, stairways, etc. of each level of the house.
3.  Cross Sections – show details of the house as though it were cut in slices from the roof to the foundation. The cross sections detail the construction of the home, insulation, flooring and roofing.
4.  Foundation Plans – include drawings for a full, partial or daylight basement and/or crawlspace.
5.  Interior Elevations – show the details of cabinets (kitchen, bathroom and utility room), fireplaces, built-in units and other special interior features.
