Color Renderings vs. Black and White Renderings
In the house plan world some houses stand out more than others. Yes, it could be because of the nice curb appeal or the fancy graphics. I feel the main difference between the plans that attract you and the plans that don't are the renderings. It is the conflict of "Color Renderings vs. B&W renderings". When searching for a house plan, how often do you click on the house plans done in black and white? For most people, not as often as you click on the color renderings. While handling the sales here at The Plan Collection I have noticed that most of the plans that people view and ultimately purchase are the homes with nice color renderings. Are people not missing out on homes that could r Read more

Rear Elevations: We are Here to Help
  Isn't it so much nicer to have more than one elevation to go off of before purchasing a house plan. I personally think the decision is a lot easier when I have at least one more view of the house. Here at The Plan Collection we would be happy to provide you with the rear elevation of your dream home at no cost. The rear elevation is usually one of those main factors in the plan purchasing process. Some of the house plans on our site already have the image of the rear elevation. All other house plans do have it available upon request. If you would like to see the rear elevation of the house plan of your dreams contact us. We would be happy to email it or fax it to you. We look forward to hearing from you. Toll free: 866-787- Read more

Great Photos of a Great Plan
  We just got some fresh pics from one of our favorite designers. The house shown is the Plan 153-1781, a great solution for mainstream suburbia. The house is built with practically no modifications, which makes it nice for comparison with the plan. Check out the beautiful pictures below.     The great room is wide open with an eating bar at the kitchen. Though the plans won’t come with any decoration packages, the designer has a Design Plan in a Can for sale.     The kitchen is probably my favorite part of this house. It’s plenty large and packs a whole lot of storage. The style here is great. I love the industrial look of the ceiling in contrast to the more traditional Read more
