You might assume all homes are designed similarly. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Decades of working with builders taught us to design with the framer in mind, ensuring the home’s buildability.
CONSTRUCTION LICENSE OPTIONS Choose from a Single-Build Construction License with additional builds just $100 each, or an Unlimited-Build Construction License, allowing you to build multiple homes based upon the home plan depicted.
We federally copyright our plans – your assurance you are not violating any copyright laws when purchasing direct from Design Basics. We protect your interests, too. If you believe someone has copied a home you built from one of our plans, we’ll investigate and take action when warranted.
NEW PLANS DEBUT ON OUR WEBSITE For 12 months after their release, the only place to review all of Design Basics’ newest plans—is on our web site.
Our Customer Support
Design Basics’ highly trained staff has all the necessary resources to answer your questions. And because there’s no untrained middleman, your questions/issues are dealt with promptly.
TECHNICAL SUPPORT When you’ve bought your home plans directly from Design Basics, eliminate any guesswork and avoid costly mistakes by contacting us for technical support throughout construction.
WE’RE HERE FOR YOU Design Basics has been in business for more than 35 years. We’re not merely a website, here today and… Lose a page from a set of construction drawings purchased 10 years ago? We can verify the plan order and send a replacement immediately.
SPEED OF PLAN DELIVERY The quickest way to receive your plan license is to buy it directly from Design Basics.
WE ALLOW YOU TO MAKE PLAN ALTERATIONS
Unlike some design firms, if you have the expertise to make changes to the plans we send you, this is allowed under our Construction License.
WE’LL MODIFY OUR PLANS FOR YOU Modified by the original designer, you can be 100% confident in the quality of your plan alterations. Our fees are quite competitive – and when Design Basics modifies the plan, you are still eligible for full technical support throughout construction.
WE OFFER FOUNDATION OPTIONS. Some designers don’t, and you’re on your own.
WE OFFER NUMEROUS WALL FRAMING OPTIONS. We can provide 2x4, 2x6, SIP, ICF, and even log home exterior wall framing for our home designs (plan alteration fees may apply).
FULL (RIGHT-READING) REVERSE PLANS. Our home plans are drafted as illustrated on our website and in our publications. Most of our plans can also be ordered in full reverse, where all of the rooms are “flipped” right to left and all of the lettering and dimensions read correctly on those reversed prints.
