Conceptual Home Plans
An Innovative Option to Pre-drawn Stock Plans and Custom Design
Each Conceptual Design includes:
PDF files for bidding and cost estimates
CAD files with authorization to modify and complete the plans
Design Sketchbook - see The Latest Ideas from Larry's Drawing Boards
For the past 30 years, I’ve provided home designs for builders and individual clients. While existing “stock plans” offer an economical solution for some, it seems that some individuals and builders either:
Conceptual Designs have been developed to address these issues. They offer the essential design for the home, providing everything a local designer, architect, or builder will need to finish the plans - (see sample).
- Want to make some changes to the plans…or
- They’re forced to re-draw the plans to meet local building codes or construction techniques.
The total cost of the Conceptual Design and the fees for making your changes will typically be far less than a custom design.
Your local builder will most likely have a designer or drafting service that can help revise and complete the plans.
Conceptual Home Designs…. Getting started
Select the Conceptual Design that comes closest to addressing your needs. Remember, virtually any change can be accomplished, especially exterior design variations.
Place a Concept Plan Package order for the design. We include everything you and your builder/designer might need. Each design will include a PDF file AND a CAD file (dwg) - (see sample). These can be emailed to you. Any local office supply (and your builder/designer) can print paper copies for you. Or, we can mail you the files along with paper copies.
Complete the Conceptual Design Customization Form included with your order. This checklist helps you determine the exact changes you want and will become a valuable means of communicating this information to your builder or designer.
Once you’ve determined the modifications that need to be made, you can take the Conceptual Design to a local design professional or to your builder to complete the drawings. Remember, your builder may very likely be able to take care of everything from this point. An Authorization to Redraw the plan will be printed on the plans. Many builders either have someone in their office who can complete the drawings, or they work closely with a local designer.
Conceptual Designs, like all stock and custom-designed plans are protected from unauthorized use and copying by federal law. When you PURCHASE a Conceptual Design, PERMISSION to modify or redraw the plan will be INCLUDED. Remember, while we encourage you to print the plan information on our website (printer friendly) for review, it is UNLAWFUL to have this printer friendly copy redrawn or modified by you, your local designer, or your builder.
