We are Builders, Architects and housing professionals who have designed a line of homes that combine efficiency, beauty, and functionality. The homes range from 317 to over 4,000 square feet. They can be built as independent units or as accessories to an existing home. They can be combined to create as much living space as a multi-generation family could want. When you add decks, porches, patios, or elevated foundations, the possibilities are endless. We offer the plans for sale to individuals, professional homebuilders, and anyone who needs a home or additional living space. Plan purchasers may work directly with architects to customize and modify the house plans as desired. The materials needed to build the home can be priced and purchased from one of our national suppliers, or any local supplier of building materials. Our program allows you to act as your own contractor or hire a builder and still control your costs by taking advantage of preferred pricing from our national suppliers. Plan purchasers work directly with the closest supplier with no pricing mark-up to us.
