What Is A House Plan?

A house plan is a set of drawings that shows different views of a house design. The drawings include dimensions and notes that tell specifically how the home is to be built. A home builder uses these drawings to accurately build a home. Our sets of house plans include:

Floor Plans

Floor plans are views of each floor, looking down from above. The plans show window and door locations, room dimensions and plumbing fixture locations.

Exterior Elevations

Exterior Elevations are flat views of the outside of the house, looking at the front, left, rear and right.

Building Sections

Building Sections show cutaway views of the home structure.

Foundation Plan

The Foundation Plan shows the location of footings and concrete slabs.

Floor & Roof Structure Layouts

Floor & Roof Layouts show the outline of the floor truss systems, and slopes, valleys, ridges and hips on the roof.

Wall Section

The Wall Section is a detailed view showing how the walls are assembled


Electrical Plan

The Electrical Plan shows the outlets, switches, lights and fans on the floor plan.


The detail page includes typical construction notes, and specific detailing.
