All blueprints are designed by licensed architects, members of the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD), or members of the Council of Publishing Home Designers (CPHD). All of the plans we feature were designed to meet one of the recognized North American building codes (the Uniform Building Code, the Standard Building Code, the Basic Building Code or the National Building Code of Canada) in effect at the time and place they were drawn.
The blueprints for most home designs include the following elements, but the presentation of these elements may vary depending on the size and complexity of the home and the style of the individual designer:
Exterior elevations show the front, rear and sides of the home, and include notes on exterior materials, details and measurements. Roof details show slope and pitch, as well as the location of dormers, gables and other roof elements, including clerestory windows and skylights. Details may be shown on the exterior elevation sheet or on a separate diagram. Note: If trusses are used, we suggest using a local truss manufacturer to ensure compliance with local codes and regulations.
Foundation plans include drawings for a standard, daylight or partial basement and/or a crawlspace, pole, pier or slab foundation. All necessary notations and dimensions are included. (Foundation options will vary for each plan. If the home you want does not have the type of foundation you desire, a generic foundation conversion diagram is available.)
Interior elevations show the specific details of cabinets (kitchen, bathroom and utility room), fireplaces, built-in units and other special interior features, depending on the nature and complexity of the item. Note: To save money and to accommodate your own style and taste, we suggest contacting local cabinet and fireplace distributors for sizes and styles. THIS IS ONLY AVAILABLE ON SELECT PLANS. PLEASE CONTACT FOR AVAILABILITY
Detailed floor plans show the placement of interior walls and the dimensions of rooms, doors, windows, stairways, etc., on each level of the home.
Cross sections show details of the home as though it were cut in slices from the roof to the foundation. The cross sections specify the home's construction, insulation, flooring and roofing details.
General specifications provide instructions and information regarding structure, excavating and grading, masonry and concrete work, carpentry, thermal and moisture protection, and specifications about drywall, tile, flooring, glazing, caulking and sealants.
Note: Regional variations, local availability of materials, local codes, methods of installation and individual preferences make it impossible to include much detail on heating, plumbing and electrical work on your plans. Your home's ductwork, venting and other details will vary depending on the type of heating and cooling system (forced air, hot water, electric, solar) and the type of energy (gas, oil, electricity, solar) that you use. These details and specifications are easily obtained from your builder, contractor and/or local suppliers.
