What if you need to personalize a house plan?
We have many people contact us for quotes for changes to our plans. Most often these changes can be easily redlined by you or your builder. Redlining is very common as changes or modifications can be made in the field with experienced professionals.

What does redlining mean? Basically, redlining is just drawing the changes directly on the houseplan(usually a vellum set of homeplans). I believe it's called redlining because it is most often done with a red pen so the changes are easily read. If your changes are minor, (which they often are) redlining will save you a lot of money in re-design fees. Check with your builder about the changes you will have and see what he recommends or is comfortable with.

If your changes are more extensive than this, please send us a customization quote request. Some of the designers we work with will be able to get an estimate for you, but others will not. We do work with a separate design firm that specializes in modifications, and they can provide you with a price estimate, but they charge $50.00. I believe that it is really worth the extra cost. They really put a lot of effort into providing you with an accurate quote, and the $50 will be applied toward the total cost of modifications. Please contact us with any questions.
