Plan Packages - Which Do You Need?

We have packages available to meet your needs, whatever stage you're at in choosing a design for your home, and when you're ready to build, the right package to meet the requirements of your construction team.

Whether your local building department requires multiple paper copies or digital submittal, or your sub-subcontractors favor old school pen-and-paper or prefer digital files - we have the perfect package to meet your project team's needs!

Bidding Package

Bidset

A single complete set of construction drawings delivered as a PDF, Stamped 'Not For Construction'. This package has been created to help you obtain bids on the cost of building your home. The amount paid for this package is credited towards the purchase of a fully buildable set for the same home.

It's important to understand that this package is not licensed for construction.  Please see our copyright page for information on build licenses and the proper use of bidset packages.


Delivered in this Package:
  • Digital PDF Copy of the plan documents - Rasterized and Stamped.
Build License Included:
  • None - Upgrade Required to Build

PDF Package

Digitally Delivered Plan SetA digital construction set allows you to make paper copies of the plan as needed for your building permit, and gives you the freedom and flexibility you need to manage your construction documents throughout your project. PDF files are ideal for keeping on a mobile device, and are easily viewable on the go.


Delivered in this Package:
  • A Digital PDF file of your 1/4" Scale Construction Documents.
Build License Included:
  • A Single Residence

Paper Copies

Bid Set Most jurisdictions require up to four copies of your house plans when applying for a building permit. The basic paper package meets that requirement, and leaves you with one paper set to have on hand for your own use, or share with your subcontractor to obtain bids.
Note:A single spare paper set is often too little for managing your construction project - we recommend purchasing a PDF Package along with your paper sets to meet all your construction project's needs.


Delivered in this Package:
  • Five (5) Paper Sets of 1/4" Scale Construction Documents.
Build License Included:
  • A Single Residence

Paper & PDF Package

Hybrid PackageThis 'hybrid' set of construction documents includes paper printed construction documents as well as a digital set. The printed construction drawings are ideal for submitting for building permits,while the digital set is great to keep on your portable device, or send to sub-contractors for bidding purposes. Additional printed sets of plans may also be purchased if desired, at the extra set price.


Delivered in this Package:
  • Five (5) Paper Sets of 1/4" Scale Construction Documents.
  • A Digital PDF file of your 1/4" Scale Construction Documents.
Build License Included:
  • A Single Residence

AutoCAD Files

Cad FileAn AutoCAD digital file allows plan changes to be made using professional CAD software. If you want to modify a plan and would like to do that locally, a Master CAD file offers the most flexibility and easiest way for professionals to modify the design. Once your plan has been modified to suit your needs, you can print as many copies as needed for the construction of your projects.


Delivered in this Package:
  • A Digital CAD File of the home design, available as DWG or DXF files. DWG suits AutoCAD 2000 or later.
Build License Included:
  • One or More Residences
