Commonly Asked Questions

Can I have my builder make my changes? Absolutely! If your builder and his/her team are willing and capable, all you’ll need to do is purchase a plan package that comes with a license to make changes. This is typically either a PDF or CAD plan package.

Who is modifying my home plan? Many firms offer to customize the home plan for you, so you would be working with the creators of the blueprints. However, if they do not offer this service, we have partnered with a number of designers who help make modifications for our customers. You may also choose to use a local draftsman or architect, or your builder may be able to modify your home plan on site!

How much will my modifications cost, and how long will they take? Modification costs are based on time and difficulty, but you can rest assured that we provide fair pricing. A modification timeline is also based on difficulty, and may be swayed by the time of year. So, get ahead of the line and get your changes in ASAP!
