The construction documents are important to the construction of your project because the drawings give the contractor the necessary information to be able to build your home as intended. Every set of construction documents I provide are checked for accuracy and completeness. The plans for your new home will include:

COVER SHEET, INDEX & CUTOUTS FOR SITE PLAN

This page includes a drawing that illustrates how the front of your new home should look once construction is complete. It also contains information needed by your building contractor, such as standard abbreviations found in the construction documents. There will also be drawings that can used by a third party to complete the site plan for your project.

EXTERIOR ELEVATIONS

The exterior elevation drawings illustrate how your home will look from four sides (Front, Rear, Left & Right Sides). Additional auxiliary drawings will be included if determined necessary by the designer. Exterior details and relevant notes will also be included.

FLOOR PLAN

The floor plan shows the layout and room arrangement for each floor of your project. It also includes relevant information such as square footage calculations, window & door sizes, detailed dimensions, and notes.

FOUNDATION PLAN

This drawing shows the overall dimensions for your new home and includes dimensions to plumbing fixtures for easier location during construction. As this is only a layout, foundation specifications will be added by your local structural engineer as part of their services.

ELECTRICAL PLAN

The locations of electrical components such as light fixtures, switches, outlets, and smoke detectors are shown on this page of the construction documents for your project. This plan also includes a proposed location for the electrical meter and main electrical service.

ROOF PLAN

The roof layout page illustrates the locations of peaks, valleys, ridges, attic vents, and roof pitches. This information is needed by the truss company your contractor uses to design and supply the pre-assembled roof trusses for your project.

BUILDING SECTION

The building section drawing is a drawing that illustrates a cut through the structure of your project in order to provide more information for proper construction. Relevant notes and dimensions will be included in this drawing.

WALL SECTIONS

Typical wall sections illustrate walls commonly found in the design for your project. Relevant notes and dimensions will be included in this drawing.

INTERIOR DETAILS

Details will be drawn as necessary to clarify interior design details and provide more detail and information for proper construction. These details will either be located on their own page or placed strategically throughout the construction documents.
