Need Plans?

Plans, plans and more plans! Are you considering building your new home or cottage and all you need are the plans? We have a library full of plans ready for you. We have stock plans, ready to move home plans and a cottage plan series to choose from. Start by clicking on your desired square footage and click on a design. Each feature sheet shows the elevation and floor plan. We understand not every floor plan works for everyone so making changes to any plan in our library is possible.

Modifying a Plan

Juggling room sizes, increasing or decreasing square footage or changing foundation types are just some of the common customization requests. No matter the type of modifications you’d like we can definitely accommodate your needs.

We partner with All-Fab Building Component’s Draftying Department for all our drafting. The preliminary drawing stage of customization begins with changes to the elevations and floor plans. Upon approval the final changes to the foundation plan, floor framing and building sections can be made. Preliminary and full sets of plans are available. Preliminary sets include four (4) elevations and one (1) floor plan. A full set includes four (4) exterior elevations, foundation plan, main floor plan, second floor or loft plan (if applicable), floor framing plans, building section(s), building details and notes. All plans meet the National Building Code.
