Construction Documentation

  • Exterior Elevations show the front, rear and sides of the house, including exterior materials, details and measurements.

  • Foundation Plans include drawings for a full, daylight or partial basement. Some of our plans are drawn with a crawlspace, but we do not offer plans with pole 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, one may be developed for you by contacting our office.

  • Detailed Floor Plans show the placement of the interior walls and the dimensions for rooms, doors, windows, stairways, etc., of each level of the house.
    Cross Sections show details of the house 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. Most of our

  • Cross Sections are common sections of that particular style of house. If the house is complex a Cross Section or other form of detail will be included to help explain how parts of that house will fit together.

  • Interior Elevations We do not offer interior elevations of the kitchen or baths because you can get these drawings for free through a local kitchen and bath store in 3D and perspective views. On a custom bases we can offer interior views of any room in the house at an additional cost.

  • Roof Details show slope, pitch and location of dormers, gables and other roof elements, including skylights. These details may be shown on the elevation sheet or on a separate diagram. Note: If trusses are used, we suggest using a local truss manufacturer to design your trusses to comply with your local codes and regulations. If Rafters are used we suggest using your local lumber company. Most lumber companies employ structural engineers who can figure out the proper spans and loads for this type of roof system.

  • Material List We do not include material lists with our drawings. Your local lumber company can provide you a complete material list for free when you purchase your lumber through them.
