I developed the idea of Conceptual Designs several years ago to offer innovative new home designs to my builder and developer clientele in various parts of the country. Although existing “stock house plans” provide an economical solution for some, many builders desire construction drawings with the exact level of detail they are accustomed to and, more importantly, plans that have the information required by their local codes.
My Conceptual Designs provide PDF and DWG files along with authorization for your local design professional to complete the plans with your changes and the amount of detail you require. They are essentially “schematic” designs with accurate exterior elevations, floor plans with overall dimensions, and a roof overview. In other words, everything your local drafting professional needs to complete the construction drawings.
We’ll be introducing new Conceptual Designs each week on Professional Builder House Plans that reflect the design requests I’m seeing in various markets around the country. This growing collection of plans will hopefully provide you with concepts that you’ll be able to rely on to bring innovative homes to your local market. I’d like to hear from you if you have any specific criteria for your area.
Our initial design House Plan 9460 is from a series of garden style homes created for lots that are 50’ wide and 105’ to 110’ deep. Each home is carefully located on the lot so that the side yard faces what is essentially a “blank” brick wall of the adjacent home. This concept creates an extremely private outdoor space. Entering the home, you find an open living, dining, and kitchen arrangement with expansive windows and access to a large porch. Carefully designed traffic flow directs you past each of the living areas. A conveniently located “resource center” offers a versatile space that can become a home office or a “command center” for running the household.
This cottage house plan features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in a 1,775 square foot footprint. The cost for this Concept House Plan is $625. To order the PDF and CAD Conceptual Design, please call Christine Cooney at (877) 912-1977, ext. 306.
