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.

3. Foundation Plans

Cedar Designs / Linwood custom homes includes a foundation plan for the home, including crawlspace, partial, full or walk-out basement. This plan is based on standard soil load bearing characteristics. The main and upper floors of the home package can be built on any type of properly constructed foundation.

  • Materials needed to complete the basement are available as an option. These materials consist
    of exterior and interior framing lumber, support beams and posts, sheathing, siding, exterior doors and windows to match the main and upper floors of the home.

    building codes are not included.
