Stock Plan Modification Fees

Service fees for stock plans that require modifications

Construction Package License:

A Construction Package is a 1/4" = 1'0" scale drawing (printed as PDF files) with all necessary details and Michigan codes to obtain a building permit, and used to construct a single house. (We have sold our plans in many other states without ever receiving a complaint that our plans did not meet code. However, you may have other state and local codes to comply to your state and/or local code requirements.) Please contact our office with questions and to receive a quote about the modifications you wish to make.

Payment schedule and optional fees

  • A minimum processing fee of $29.95 to obtain the plans
    • Builders who order a successive plan with modifications will not pay the processing fee.
  • A minimum service fee of $300.00 to enter the process of plan modification
  • Rework fees of $75.00 per hour for plan modification time

  • Some plans are not complete and will require additional time and costs to complete (these plans should be noted on each plan on the website)

Additional Notes:

  • Any redesign or rework will be charged at $75.00 per hour. (Note that some rework can take more than 10 or 20 hours and even more. We want to emphasize that reworking a plan may not always be the less expensive path. It will be your responsibility to ask us where the costs are at any given time. But we will also let you know up front if the modifications you are asking for will require a new plan. See below
  • We allow you to build consecutive homes from the same plans, however we do require that you notify us so you do not violate copyright laws. In addition a new order will be made which allows us to update our database, add the correct names and locations and any additional codes or notes to the new plans. (A small $29.95 processing fee will apply).
  • Plans over 3500 square foot may be subject to additional costs due to an architectural stamp required to meet code. Estimated costs run $0.10 cents per square foot for all finished area on all floors. If the plan is complex and require the skills of an engineer, more charges will apply.
  • Steve Nyhof Enterprises, Inc reserves the right to start a plan over if the changes requested are too extensive. When large changes are made to an existing plan the possibility of mistakes increase. Moreover, the cost of the plan may end up to cost more because of the hours it may take to complete.
