Our Process

Here's how we'll help you through the planning process:

First, please spend some time on this website. Our LEARNING CENTER has ARTICLES to help you as you plan and build your new home. Our HOME NEEDS AND UTILIZATION INVENTORY. will help you think through your requirements and desires for each room. And we have numerous stock plans in our ONLINE PLAN STORE.

Then please call for an appointment for your free INITIAL CONSULTATION at our office located at 2625 Charlestown Rd in New Albany. Tell us about your dream home. If you have a sketch of the home you have imagined, bring it along! Also bring photos, clippings or floor plans. Bring anything that will help communicate the style and features you are looking for in your new home. After your free Initial Consultation a $100 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT is required before the actual design work will begin. This $100 will be applied to the cost of your completed house plans.

You'll be notified when your PRELIMINARY PLAN AND EXTERIOR VIEWS are ready to view- Then you'll get to see the Floor Plan and several 2 dimensional 'Elevation' views of your new home. You may receive these by email in a format that allows you to mark comments, questions and redlines right on the plan to be returned for revisions. Or you may request an appointment to meet with us at our offices. Before receiving your Preliminary Plan you should make a PAYMENT OF 75% OF THE TOTAL CHARGE based on the plan square footage of your new home. Payment may be made by cash, check or credit card in person or by phone. You may also pay online via PayPal. It is important to remember that plans should not be put into use for pricing, permits or any other purpose until paid for in full!

Once the revisions are made we will print your FINAL PLAN SET. Your set will include all the plan elements your builder will need for pricing, permits and construction of your new home. Included in the plan set is the foundation/basement, main floor, 2nd floor/bonus (if applicable), elevation drawings (front, rear, left, right), cross sections, and details). Plan pricing is calculated on the square footage of your home at a rate of 53 CENTS/ SQUARE FOOT (living area above grade). Finished basement areas are charged at a rate of 25 CENTS/ SQUARE FOOT. You will receive your Final Print Set when your balance is paid in full. Additional plan sets can be printed for a small fee.


Further Changes and Consultation: $80 per hour

If you require further changes after your final prints are finished, we’ll assist you at an affordable hourly rate. You may need to make some changes before construction begins. Maybe you want different window sizes, or want to move a wall. Whatever your need, we can help.
