If stock plans were adequate for you then you would not be reading this now.
While we offer a full range of stock plans, custom design is our specialty!
YOU want plans customized to you and your family’s wants, needs, goals, dreams and desires!
The question you have probably been asking is some version of this:
"How do I combine the things I love from all these different homes and merge them into the home I want/envision?"
There is only one answer to that question:
Quality custom drawn plans from someone who knows how to communicate. I cannot stress that enough: Knowing how to communicate and being willing to do so is the number one reason to choose UDesignIt over all other options!
We could try to sell you on our quality:
On the fact that we use Chief Architect for all your plans. The experience and degrees of our designers. The fact that we are owned by people who have built over 30,000 custom homes nationwide since 1988. Or any other number of truly important facts but at the end of the day none of that matters if you are not listened to and heard!
How else will your plan be what you want and a design you can afford?
We will spend time with you, walking you through the design as you see changes happen in real time in-person or remotely via Zoom. We will talk directly with your consultant or builder to ensure that your design goals meet your budget goals as best as possible. We want you to build YOUR home, not our home!
So to be honest, there are unlimited reasons to use us over all other options but we know for a fact that the number one reason – communication!
It’s where we truly excel over all others!
Contact us today and let us prove ourselves. You won’t be disappointed!
PS: We don’t like to sell off of price but if you are a price buyer, then using UDesignIt is a no brainer! You are getting engineered software designed home plans, typically at $25,000+ service for $.75 a ft.
Sure you might find someone working from his/her bedroom at fifty cents a foot but talk about apples and oranges. We know we are way below market on price for our quality; we just want to sell the quality and not the price.
The Basic Design Package includes Plot Plan, Roof Plan, Foundation Plan, Floor Plans and All Elevations in PDF format.
Basic Electrical, Plumbing & Landscaping Plans, Full 3D Color Renderings, Erosion and Drainage Plans, 3D Video Walkthroughs and Full Material Takeoffs are all available ala carte for minor additional fees.
The Basic Design Package includes up to 10 (Ten) free revisions and 1 (One) free re-draw to your plans.
Revisions can be done via email, phone, In-Person or Web-Meeting through Zoom. During In-Person or Web-Meetings, changes can be made live while you watch and discuss with the designer.
Additional revisions are just $150/ea. While our actual internal cost is a little higher but we want to fault on being fair. We would love to offer unlimited revisions, however we have found that if offered the occasional client would take advantage so we sadly had to assign a limit. If it’s helpful, it’s a rare client that uses even 10.
Yes! Your full CAD file is available upon request. It is a single-use plan but you, your sub-contractors and builder/construction consultant will find having access to the CAD extremely helpful.
Yes, on a universal general basis. While building codes can vary for each municipality, our plans are exclusively drawn using Chief Architect according to the International Residential Code (IRC).
No! While we can’t guarantee the individual building practices of all builders and framing contractors, our clients rarely have issues due to our use of engineered software versus being drawn free hand with CAD. Most designers just use CAD as it is quicker and easier, but what is gained in speed is usually lost equally in both artistry and accuracy - always beware of CAD only designs.
1 (One) Complete Re-Draw is included in the Basic Design Package. Additional Re-Draws can be had for an additional fee of $750/ea. A Design Re-Draw consists of more than 80% of the initial design changed.
Absolutely! While it depends on your building choices we know how to ‘value design’ when desired. We strongly encourage you to do a budget meeting with your builder/consultant and to do what builders call ‘red-lining’ plans and we will make changes accordingly. What good is a fancy home design that you can’t afford to build? We want all our clients to actually build their custom-designed home thus we do up to 10 free revisions!
Yes! We allow you to make one minor revision to stock plans, however no external walls can be moved. Two or more requested changes and it becomes a custom plan and will be priced accordingly.
