How It Works

1. Select Plan

Select your plan from our pre-designed and engineered (stamped) collection.

Select your plan from our pre-designed and engineered (stamped) collection.

All our plans are designed and engineered per the Florida building code and are stamped by a Florida licensed professional engineer. These plans have been previously permitted and designed for building in the north Florida areas. All our engineers have had full and direct control of the design process from beginning to end. We take pride in our designs and engineering and value ourselves far beyond more than just a “stamp”. We understand our “stamp” is a major requirement for permitting and getting your project up and running. This is the main reason why we created this resource to provide you with fully engineered stamped plans to get your project started very quickly. We are always adding new plans to our collection and any plans shown can be modified to your liking.

2. Provide Site Info

Provide your contact and site information so we can review your needs with our engineers.

Provide your contact and site information.

Please provide your contact and site specific information(address, a parcel number, etc..Our engineers will verify all wind speed and exposure requirements and adjust the plans to meet the wind design requirements. All foundations are designed in accordance with the Florida building code minimum bearing capacity requirements for sandy soils. It is the contractors responsibility to achieve these minimum soil requirements in the field and report any deleterious or unsuitable soils to the engineer. Truss engineering is not included in our plans but our engineers will review/approve truss shop drawings for permitting.

3. Place Order

Place your plans order and any add on items if needed.

Place your plans order and any add on items.

Please place your order and select any add on items you desire. These include material lists, additional schedules, 3D model(if available), additional printed plan copies, site plan, flip/mirror plan, plan modifications. Your order will be processed and our service proposal/agreement along with a link to purchase the plans online will be sent to you.

4. We Stamp & Ship

We print, stamp, and mail your plan copies within 2-3 business days.

We print, stamp, and mail your plan copies within 2-3 business days.

Once our proposal/agreement is signed, full payment is received, and all site specific and project information is verified, we will print, stamp, and mail plan copies within 2-3 business days.

Our Mission

Simple, functional, and cost effective designs delivered in a fraction of the time and cost. Every plan is designed and approved by a local designer and professional engineer familiar with local building codes and permitting requirements.

Yes. The plans you purchase will be permit ready. There may be additional items you or your contractor will need to provide to get a permit approval. These items depend on your permit office requirements and location of build. These items may include:

  • Energy Calculations (we can provide for added fee)
  • Truss Engineering (provided by truss manufacture)
  • Product Approval lists
  • Site Plans
  • Civil/Drainage plans and/or engineering
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • Construction permitting
  • Boundary, Tree, or Topo surveys.
  • Septic Design and/or Engineering.
  • Flood Zone Specific Engineering
  • Zoning due diligence.

Please consult with your contractor to determine the additional items you may need.

We can make modifications to our plans for an additional cost, depending on your specific needs. This is usually the most convenient option for our customers, as certain modifications may require engineering work. If you or other design professionals prefer to make changes to the plans, we can provide CAD files for purchase. Please note that the purchase of our plans includes a license to build only one house, and the plans cannot be resold.

Yes, we are local and have offices to meet and discuss your project. Purchase of one of our plans and a design consultation fee is required for a meeting to make modifications.

Indeed, we can offer preliminary plans and bid sets that are not meant for construction but contain sufficient information to provide you with an estimated cost. If you decide to purchase a full set of construction plans, we will apply the bid set fee as a credit towards the purchase of your stamped plans.

All of our plans have been designed to meet the minimum Florida building code requirements, with most having been previously approved through the major cities and counties in Florida. However, certain municipalities and plan reviewers may require additional items to be included in the plans. Sometimes, municipalities may have their own ordinances or requirements that go beyond the building code, and it can be challenging to be aware of them all. We stand behind our plans and will address any comments within reason. Even though obtaining permits can be a complex process, we strive to make it smoother for our customers. If comments lead to significant changes to the plans that exceed the minimum requirements per the Florida building code, we will charge hourly based on our standard rates.

Answering this question can be difficult since the cost can vary significantly depending on various factors. While there are many good online references that can give you a general idea, to be more accurate and safe, it’s advisable to obtain actual quotes from local contractors. Labor and material prices and availability can differ significantly from one county to another. The best approach is to obtain local bids from local contractors. If you need help finding local builders, we can provide referrals upon request

The requirement for a raised foundation will depend on various factors, such as the natural grade of your land and the minimum finish floor requirements set by FEMA and local ordinances. Your surveyor or builder can provide you with guidance on this matter. Our plans come with a monolithic foundation design, but if you prefer an alternative foundation system, we can provide customized designs for an additional fee.

Our base stamped plan package includes 2- 24×36 stamped sets for permitting. Additional stamped sets can be purchased or you can buy the stamped plan set with electronic PDF package to print as many copies as you need at your local print shop.

All our plans are designed with 2×4 walls, which are commonly used in new residential construction in Central to North Florida. However, we recognize that some clients may desire stronger or more energy-efficient wall systems, especially in the higher wind zone in southern Florida. If you wish to modify the exterior wall types and sizes, you can select the appropriate options on the order page. Please note that such modifications will require additional design time on our end, and it may take a few extra days to finalize the plans.

No, it is illegal for a licensed professional architect or engineer to stamp plans that they have not personally prepared or supervised the preparation of. However, we can provide structural engineering services for plans that you have already drawn up, but we cannot make any changes or stamp plans that were prepared by others
