Drafting Services Should Provide More than Just Drawings

Why are you choosing to work with a drafting services company to design your home?  You could just buy some premade blueprints off of the internet and hand them to the builder.  You could walk into a builders office and choose one of their off the shelf designs and let them get started.  Your reason might have been the decision you do not want your home to look like everyone else.  You may have special needs.  Your property might create special challenges which require a unique design.  The best reason might be a little simpler.

Drawings Do Not Create a Home

The reason you chose to work with a home design team is probably very simple.  You want to build a home not a house.  You know a building project is more involved than turning over a handful of plans to a builder and hoping for the best.

There are important decisions to be made about how you will use your new home.  The materials should be chosen to reflect your way of life and needs.  Even simple items like the placement of bathrooms can be important in making a house feel like your home.

Every family has special needs.  You might want your kitchen to be laid out a little bit differently to match your style of cooking.  Some people enjoy an open kitchen which spills into a small dining area.  Other people abhor the idea of everyone being able to look in to their kitchen.  Those tiny details are important to you, and are one of the reasons why working with professional drafting services to make your home plans perfect is ideal.

Avoiding the High Cost of Changes

There is something very dangerous lurking in many of the pre-made plans for a home.  The moment you make changes your costs quickly increase.  You are then back to the starting point and need to find a drafter who can make the changes for you.  You do not want the home to be built with notes scribbled on a drawing which might be misunderstood.

You could run into a very interesting problem when you start making changes, too.  Were you aware many of these plans are protected by copyright laws and cannot be modified without approval of the owner?  This can become very costly when the plans belong to the builder.  He will demand the plans are modified by his preferred drafting service and you will pay for the changes, including his markup.  He may even add on fees for his consultation in the changes.

The secondary problem might be discovered in the building construction drawing instructions and material listings. When you hire a drafting services firm who works for you they will specify materials and construction methods to meet your desires and budget.  When you are using the pre-made plans from a builder or purchases elsewhere the material list may call for over priced items and processes which add to the cost without increasing value.

Enjoy the Feeling of Working with Professional Friends
