How long does it take to draw up plans for a new home?
Once we have our initial meeting to discuss your new home plans it takes me about one to two weeks to have a preliminary plan to you for review depending on how busy I am at the time. Once the preliminary plans are approved with any changes that you make it takes me about another week to create the working drawings which are ready to be turned in for permitting.
What is the typical cost of a set of drawn up plans for a new home?
I have a rate sheet of pricing that I can provide if you are interested. I start out @ $.60 / sf for smaller homes and about a $1.00 / sf depending on the size and complexity of the home. Also depending on the complexity of the home engineering may be required which I outsource and would be an additional cost. Other items that you may need are a site plan, Energy code document and wall bracing plans. When we meet to discuss your plans, we can go over the potential costs that you will incur to create your home plans.
Do you have a minimum home size that you will draw plans for?
The main answer is no. I have drawn plans for shops and other out buildings and homes from 900 Sq. ft. to over 7,000 Sq. Ft. I also draw plan for remodels and additions.
