Want to modify a plan?
Many times people find plans that are almost perfect. With a few changes the almost perfect plan can become your dream home. We can change almost anything, within reason. Your builder may also offer a modification service. If you want your builder to modify a plan you simply purchase the AutoCAD version of the plan. This is a editable version of the home plan. Since we designed these plans sometimes it is best to have us modify them. There is a limit however. When modification become too extensive it is time to look at a custom home. It is not unusual for modifications to cost much more than the cost of a stock plan. Sometimes it turns out the better choice is a custom home plan. Through our sister company, Sater Group, Inc. we offer full service custom home plan creation. It is always best to start with the Modification Consultation first. This way we have a good idea of what you are looking for.
Why a fee for the Modification Consultation?
We get requests all the time for modification. Each request must be researched. There are no quick and easy answers. A home plan is a collection of connected systems. A simple change to one area might result in large adjustments needed in other areas. For example, moving an exterior wall 12 inches will require the foundation and the roof to be adjusted. Which could impact the plumbing and electrical systems. Many times a simple interior change, will impact the exterior look of the home. This can result in new exterior elevations being created. Changes to home plans can ripple throughout the structure. Because this work takes skill and resources, we must charge a minimal fee. The cost of the Modification Consultation will be deducted from the cost of the final modification.
