Each of our distinctive residential floor plans come with a professionally designed, fully dimensioned Floor Plan indicating the size and location of all walls, doors, windows and special features. Fireplace details are included where applicable. Door and window schedules are included to provide detailed information regarding opening sizes and window types. Each plan is supplemented with specific and general notes, room labels, area calculations, light and ventilation calculations, and ceiling heights.
Kitchen & Bath Layouts
The general layout of kitchens and baths is shown on the floor plan and include fixtures and cabinetry.
All residential floor plans have scale exterior elevations that show front, rear, left and right sides. These are detailed representations that graphically display heights of significant building features and design elements. Exterior finishes, ornamental design elements, roof type and roof pitch are generally shown on the elevations.
Wall Sections and Building Sections are incorporated into the set to show a profile slice of the building to indicate recommended methods and materials of construction, including second floor joist framing.
All building structural requirements are engineered and fully detailed with beam, ledger, footing, column, and header schedules, notes and any special condition (like stairs and residential elevators) and framing details. Connector schedules are based on engineered uplift calculations.
Most of the Architect House Plans come with engineered reinforced slab foundations. These include thickened edge and footing sizes, section markers, and mechanical equipment locations, as well as all building code related notes.
Roof and Roof Framing Plans are aerial views showing roof slopes, ridges, hips and valleys. In addition to the basic rooflines, our roof plans have specifically engineered truss drawings that show the length, spacing and layout of all roof structural members.
Most plans have separate, fully engineered Mechanical Plans that show detailed information regarding building mechanical systems, and specific equipment details and specifications.
Electrical Plans are included separately to provide the level of detail you could only expect from an experienced architect. These drawings fully represent the location of all fixtures, switches and outlets. Lighting calculations, electrical symbol legend, typical Arc Interrupting Current calculations, riser diagrams and panel schedules are also included.
Plan sets include the layout of all plumbing fixtures and normally have a plumbing isometric riser diagram with each fixture labeled.
