The Cedar Designs / Linwood Post and Beam package has been carefully selected to give you more choices, more options and the best value. It also contains the construction house plans and materials needed to get your custom home built to the important lock-up stage quickly.
1. Concept Design Drawings
Cedar Designs / Linwoodcustom homes includes concept design drawings in its home package. These drawings can cost a considerable amount of money when purchased separately from designers or architects.
Concept design drawings show the proposed house floor plan and exterior look (elevations) of the home. This is the easiest and least expensive time to make design changes.
Once the concept is finalized these drawings are used to prepare construction plans. Having a well thought out concept design will save you a lot of money during the construction process.
2. Construction Plans
Our final construction plans are widely regarded as the best in the business by custom builders. They contain all the detail required to obtain building permits and build the home quickly and efficiently.
We have a large in-house team of experts who prepare customized pre-engineered plans from your concept drawings. These will fully comply with national and local building codes and take site-specific issues into consideration.
Please note that local engineering approvals may be required in some areas. Any applicable local costs are the responsibility of the customer.
