Important things you should know if you want to modify your house plan

If you’re interested in building a house from the ground up, Home Plan Source is a great resource for finding pre-designed plans at affordable prices. Unlike starting from scratch with an architect who will need to meet with you to get an idea of what you’re looking for, then create a design, then meet with you again to see if the design is exactly what you had in mind, then create a set of working drawings to obtain your final approval, Home Plan Source has hundreds of designs already created by an award-winning architect. So, you’ll not only save time in choosing a pre-existing plan, you’ll only pay a fraction of what starting from a blank piece of paper would cost.

But what if you’re not sure what you’re looking for or you can’t find “exactly” what you want in our portfolio of designs? To answer the first part of that question, you can use the “Quick Search” option on our website’s homepage to include the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, floors, garage bays, and even minimum to maximum square footage. The search feature will find plans that meet your criteria so you can browse designs that only fit your primary requirements.

To answer the second part of the question above, if you can’t find “exactly” what you’re looking for, we can work with you to modify any plans that provide you the perfect plan. Simply give us a call at 757-546-2471 and let’s talk about your options. Many of the plans already give you the option to choose a foundation—crawlspace versus a raised concrete slab option—but we can also work with you to make other plan changes.

If you’re talking about small tweaks that the builder can make on the fly in the field, there generally won’t even be an additional customization fee. However, if you want to move a wall or something that will affect other aspects of the home, there would be a small fee to make the revision.

The bottom line is, we want you to absolutely love your new home. We’ll be happy to work with you to make sure you get what exactly what you want.
