Construction Photo No one matches our quality and attention to detail. Our goal is to make our designs easy to build and cost-effective, without sacrificing architectural interest. All of our home plans are carefully considered from every angle and view. Not only do we design homes with great curb appeal, we pay special attention to the rear and side elevations as well. At the time of their creation, all of our plans are designed to conform to the prevailing code, but they do not meet all local climatic and geographical design criteria. National and local building codes vary with location and can change from year to year. Consequently, it may be necessary for you to meet with a local builder, architect or other construction professional to review your local building codes and make any changes to the plan the codes may require.

We value both consumer and builder feedback, and we incorporate it into the design process with our House Plans on the Drawing Board. This ensures our home designs meet the needs and desires of today's homeowners. From initial concept through the final construction drawing creation process, we solicit comments and opinions from both homeowner and builder visitors to the Drawing Board section of our site.Please visit and share your opinions to help guide the next generation of Donald A.
