  • Cover Sheet -The cover sheet features an elevation of the home, sheet number index for the plan, and contact information.
  • Foundation - These drawings will detail and illustrate the foundation of the home, exterior and interior footings to support the floors and structure above.  If a basement is purchased, it will show the stairs, bearing walls, and basement windows and doors.
  • First Floor Plan - This page is drawn to 1/4”=1’-0” scale and includes exterior dimensions to build the home.  The notes are precise directions for your builder.  Important features such as built-ins, niches, and appliances are noted.  Doors and windows are identified and specific sizing can be found on window and door schedules. Conventional framing.
  • Second Floor Plan - The second floor includes stair details.  Often the reflective roof detail is shown legibly over the second floor plan.  This is helpful for the framing contractor.
  • Lighting and Electrical - On this sheet you have a schematic of the lights, electrical plugs, phone location, and code items such as smoke detectors.  It is common place to build with your builder and/or electrician before the work starts to review this plan.  Careful planning can make your home special and convenient for your family.
  • Second Floor Lighting - The same details as provided for the first floor.
  • Front and Rear Elevations - The front and rear elevations may be on separate pages depending on the size of the house.  This page comes with exterior dimensions and notes required to complete construction.  This is where the windows, doors, and interior trim details are illustrated, as well as wall heights, roof pitches and ridge heights.
  • Right and Left Elevations - The right and left elevations provide the same details as the front and rear elevations.
  • Roof Plan - This drawing, usually at 1/4”=1’-0” scale, will be a bird’s eye view of the home.  It will show the ridges, hips, and valleys.  This page will show a beautifully designed roof.
  • Cross-Sections - Sections are used to further describe any architectural intent necessary for the builder or framer. This drawing will illustrate important changes in the floor, ceiling, and roof heights.
  • Cabinet Elevations - Cabinet elevations are provided with your plans, and like the electrical plan, they are mainly a guide for estimating purposes.  Cabinets are an area that is easy to customize and your builder or cabinet maker will work with you early on in the process to ensure that the correct cabinets are specified.  After framing and sheet rock installation sizes of walls may change slightly.  The cabinet maker must take as built measurements to properly size your cabinets. **NOTE: Most house plans will contain interior/cabinet elevations, however not all plans will. Please inquire prior to purchase.
