When you purchase one of our house plans, we provide the construction plans in PDF, CAD and Sketchup Pro formats. These three digital formats are described below.
- The PDF is easy to view and print. It contains all the pages of the plans and shows colors and shadows. It can be printed on any printer or paper size.
- Our CAD files are in AutoCAD 2018 .dwg format. These drawings can be opened in AutoCAD or many other popular CAD programs which use the .dwg format. If you need an alternate format, please contact us for a quote to convert the files. If you need an online viewer for the CAD files, you can use the AutoDesk Viewer.
- The Sketchup Pro file can be opened in Layout, which is part of the Sketchup Pro bundle. It is the format that we use to create the drawings. It includes a copy of the Sketchup 3D model.
You can download all three formats, and use them to build your home.
Your file downloads have an expiration date. After the expiration date, the plans will continue to be licensed to you, but you will no longer be able download them from our server. If you need an extension to your expiration date, please contact us.
If you have questions, please contact us.
