We offer construction bid plan sets for sale for $100. You will receive a complete plan set stamped with a watermark that you will be able to use to collect construction bids from contractors. If you purchase the full plan set after purchasing a bid set, we will take the $100 off of the final price.

Plumbing layouts, heating and air conditioning layouts and electrical layouts are not included in our plans. You will need to consult a local contractor for those layouts for your plans.

Many modifications are possible but need to be reviewed in order to know if they will work while maintaining the integrity of the plan and complying with all building codes. Plan modifications are priced on a plan-to-plan basis and can vary based on the extent of changes requested. We will prepare a free quote generally within 1-2 business days. Some examples of changes are: finished basement, changing number of garage stalls, changing from slab on grade to crawl space, increasing or decreasing room sizes/sq ft of plan, redesigning floor plans, changing stairs, revising exterior elevations, roof pitches, changing ceiling heights, ICF foundation, changing window sizes/styles, changing exterior siding/stone etc., adding a deck or screen porch. Choose the plan you would like modified and send us your changes and questions through our contact us form and we will prepare and email you a free quote. If you agree to the quote for your plan changes we require a 25% non-re-fundable down payment to begin the changes.

Modifications to the plan may be needed due to certain counties, municipalities and developments having their own additional building codes, covenants, and requirements. Determining and complying with all codes is the responsibility of the builder/homeowner. If changes are needed to plans to comply with any additional requirements after payment is received and final plan is sent there will be additional costs for plan changes, determined on a plan to plan basis.

Additional modifications to the plan may be needed due to certain counties, municipalities and developments having their own additional building codes, covenants, and requirements. Determining and complying with all codes is the responsibility of the builder/homeowner. Contact us with any questions and plan modifications. Once you purchase your plan, a final construction set is emailed in PDF format to you and allows you to reproduce plans as needed for obtaining bids, permits, and for the construction of the home. You can take this electronic file to a local print shop and have your blueprints printed in various sizes to suit your needs. Printed plan copies can be purchased for $3 per sheet plus postage and mailed if requested. Included pages are front, rear and side elevations, detailed foundation plan, detailed floor plans, typical wall sections and details, general details and specifications per house plan. Also included in your plan order: Garage left or right, if plan has a basement, choose between full basement, lookout or walkout. Choose poured concrete or concrete block foundation and frost footing depth.

Finished square footage of house plans are taken from the exterior perimeter of frame wall and include only heated living spaces. Staircases and 2 story areas are only included once in the calculations of the first floor. Calculations do include open walkways in the heated space. The total finished square foot calculation does not include unfinished basements, porches, garages, decks or attic spaces.

Our house plans do not come stamped by an architect or engineer. Check with your local building department for engineering requirements. You may need to have your plan reviewed by an engineer for structural details and code standards before construction begins.
