Buy Your House Plans with Confidence
We are the designers of every plan on this site
Though you may sometimes find our home plans advertised and for sale elsewhere both online and in print, it makes sense to purchase your plan directly. Buy with confidence, knowing your home plans come from the original source and that you have support from the original designer of your home. Our plans meet IRC Code requirements and include structural details that meet the majority of requirements, and include complete and detailed dimensioned floor plans, electrical outlet details, cross sections, roof plan, cabinet layouts and elevations, structural information and all the general notes and specifications your builder will need to construct your new home.
Choosing the right house plans is about more than Architectural Style
We create house plans in many styles, from modern farmhouse, multigenerational, single story plans, to country floorplans with wrap around porches or even storybook plans or those with walkout basements. However, we understand that choosing the right design means much more to you than curb appeal. We have thousands of designs to meet the demands of your family, lifestyle, and budget. Small 2 bedroom cottages, popular 3 bedroom house plans, and large open floorplan layouts. Still can't find the right design to fit you perfectly? We have a design team ready to help modify, or even create a new plan for the perfect fit.

As the original designer and copyright owner - we can beat any lower price you find a Mascord plan for sale - on any website authorized to sell our plans. Before you make your purchase simply give us a call, direct us to the site on which you have seen a lower advertised price, and we'll not only match that price - we'll also give you a further 5% discount :-). Our price-beating guarantee refers to regularly listed prices - but if you find any coupon, special offer, bonus offer, freebies, or rebate offered on a different website - call us - tell us where it is, and we'll see if we can beat that too!
The Support you need Throughout Construction
Building a home can be a daunting task, even for some experienced home builders. We've got your back!

Location Specific Considerations
You may have Local Code Requirements beyond IRC
Our house plans are designed to conform to The International Residential Code (IRC) for most states, or Oregon and Washington local state codes (for orders in those states).
Your area may have also have specific energy codes or design criteria that must be followed. Compliance could include filling out forms providing evidence that your construction drawings meet requirements, or adjusting structural details to suit. To find out exactly what drawing details you should expect with your Mascord house plans, see "What's included in a Plan Set?". If you aren’t sure what you may require in addition to your stock house plans, contact your building department and ask for a list of all of the items they require to submit for, and obtain a building permit.
You may need Geologicial or Seismic Engineering to accompany your House Plans
Many regions of the USA and Canada have site specific engineering requirements, such as earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Northwest, or the Gulf, Florida, & Carolina coasts that are frequented by hurricanes. Additional Wind and Seismic engineering drawings are required to accompany your home plans to obtain a building permit in most areas. These additional drawings need to be provided and stamped by a professional licensed in your state. In most cases we have working relationships established with engineers who can help you obtain the necessary drawings cost effectively, or you are welcome to source your own local engineer.
You may have a High Snow Load
We typically calculate and provide sizing of beams for a snowload of 25 psf. You may need beams sized to accommodate larger roof loads specific to your region. We are able to help with this; please speak with our sales staff to discuss your options.
You may need to get your plans 'Stamped'
Building jurisdictions in several states - including California, New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and Illinois - require that your home design is reviewed and your entire set of construction drawings is stamped by a local professional. If you are building in such an area, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your local building department.
You may need a Site Plan
In addition to the construction drawings, you may also need a site plan that shows where the house is going to be located on your chosen property, along with any grading and water management / septic system requirements.
