Do You Even Need a House or Cottage Plan?

Many builders would tell you they don’t need a house plan. They would claim that pictures are enough for them! Yes, they are absolutely right! They don’t need any plan to build your future home because they’ve built hundreds of homes in the past without a plan. But… with a plan, you will be able to easily:

Control the geometric dimensions of the walls, windows, doors, and other parts within up to 1/4″ accuracy;

Know exactly how much bricks, lumber and building materials you need and which ones (concrete, fittings, slabs, lintels, timber, and so forth). All these details are included in the plan;

Determine the place to lay external networks: sewerage, water supply, electricity and gas;

Draft a detailed budget and select a contractor on a competitive basis by giving the home plan to several organizations for estimates.

Control the structure and volume of work performed.

Alright, so why do builders need such an instrument they could use to control their work?

Can I save money on a cottage plan? Yes, of course!

Choose what you need and don’t pay extra.

Most of the standard plans can be changed at your request You can add or remove a garage, change the layout or overall dimensions of the house, replace the structure material or facade decoration, etc. A plan can be equipped with a ground floor, an attic or a terrace. A house made of blocks can be made of bricks and vice versa. Do not forget to order for recalculation of the foundation based on the geological conditions of your site to ensure a long service life for your future country house. The timeframe and cost of making changes depend on the amount of adjustments and on the company executing the changes. It usually takes 2 to 6 weeks and would enable construction to start as quick as possible.

All your wishes and the features of your site will be taken into account.

The choice is yours! Whichever option you choose, one thing would remain unchanged – the construction documentation you will receive will be of high quality!
