Drafting services cost range average from $1,200 to $8,000 for custom house plans and could range from $700 to $1,500 for pre-drawn plans. Some companies charge by the square foot at a so you may expect to pay between $0.40 and $2.25 per square foot on your home plan.
That is a difficult question to answer as construction costs vary widely from region to region. It also depends on how much trim detail you include and the type of finishing you choose. We suggest you speak to contractors in your area to get an estimate of the costs of construction.
Yes, a complete set of architectural plans are provided that include everything you will need. However, because of varying soil and drainage conditions, a local engineer may need to review and approve the foundation. In addition, it is standard practice that the design of specialty items are provided by the supplier or installer. These include but are not limited to roof trusses, floor framing, HVAC design, electrical and gas servicing.
A CAD file of the home plan you are interested in can be purchased if you would like to provide the architectural drawings to your engineer, HVAC designer or local professional for modification. Costs vary by home plan so please contact us for pricing.
Most designers have practical work experience in place of advanced degrees and licenses, meaning they are not licensed architects. Here at RAD, we provide virtually the same services that a traditional architect would, but may need to involve them depending on the size and type of project. Any good designer should know the law and limits of their own ability.
Our goal is to reflect your needs and desires for your dream home, we gain that insight thru our consultation and in-depth design questionnaire. Our design process is divided into several phases; conceptual floor plan design, preliminary exterior 3D, interior 3D, building calculations and construction plans (often referred to as the CD’s/construction documents). We invite you to be a part of as much of any of these design phases as you want to. Obviously, your involvement in the conceptual floor plans and exterior and interior 3D are necessary.
Not at all, we have many clients that live out of state. We even have one client that hired us and it was several years before we met in person.

This is my first opportunity to learn about you. It's a chance for me to hear your vision, learn how you live, what you need, and the home you dream of.

Typically 2 weeks after the initial meeting, I will begin the preliminary layout design exploring all of the plan possibilities and exterior sketches/renderings of your home with your budget and goals in mind.
The number of proofs and reviews will be based on your needs. I will work with you on all the details until all revisions are satisfied and your home is exactly how you had envisioned it. I include up to 2 revisions after the initial design, each revision typically takes one week.
Once the plan layout and exterior elevations have been finalized, I will work on drawing the detailed construction and permit drawings. This process typically takes 2 weeks. I will work with your contractor to provide construction drawings that give them all the details they need to build your home. Once the builder has permit approval and starts construction I will continue to be available to the builder and you until project completion.
