Examples of the sheets we provide with each plan
Plot Plan Examples
A "Plot Plan" is one of the sheets included each time you order a plan. We will take your
Lot and Block information of where the plot is located, and put the house onto the lot for you.
This allows you to see how it will fit and can be modified by your request if you prefer us to move
it around on the lot instead of just center it. The choice is up to you, and this price is
included with each Stock, Custom, or Modified plan.
We offer a "stem"/"conventional" footing or a "Peir and Grade" foundation by default. But any
of our plans can be modified to include a basement, crawlspace, monolitich or other construction type
by request, although some drafting time might be required, please click Contact Us
if you have
Floor Plan Examples
The floor plan is the single most recognizable documents when it comes to house construction. This page
covers the over all layout of a house, including room dimensions, and specifications for design. A lay person
would be able to pick one up and get a general idea of how a house is to be constructed.
Electrical Plan Examples
The electrical plan is used to help pre-plan how many light switches/sources and plugs need to be put into
place to meet at least a base level of operation satisfaction. By this we mean, if you walk into a room, we
thought about you walking into the room, and which way the door is facing, and how you might just need or
want another switch at a certain location. While we use the generalized of about how many would be needed,
we are able to by request customize this step for you if you request. Nothing like having things designed
precisely to the way you want to live.
Elevation Plan Examples
Also included is the elevation plan, which gives a graphical representation of what a home would look like
from the outside. This allows you to see what the home will look like from the Front, Read, and both
sides. This gives you an idea about window and door placement. And the front elevation will feature
the materials being used as the veneer for the home.
Roof Plan Examples
The Roof Plan is another page that is drawn to aid the roofers in knowing what the plate, and wall heights
are being used to make the roof plan work out as shown. Most plans are drawn with an 8/12 roof pitch, but
often a 10/12 to 12/12 is used on porches to add accent to the house to allow it to appear larger without
costing as much as an entire roof done at a higher pitch.
All sales on house plans and customization/modifications are final.
No refunds or exchanges can be given once your order has started the fulfillment process.
All house plans from Perry House Plans are designed to conform to the local codes when and where the original house was constructed.
In addition to the house plans you order, you may also need a site plan that shows where the house is going to be located on the property. You might also need beams sized to accommodate roof loads specific to your region. Your home builder can usually help you with this. You may also need a septic design unless your lot is served by a sanitary sewer system. Many areas now have area-specific energy codes that also have to be followed. This normally involves filling out a simple form providing documentation that your house plans are in compliance.
In some regions, there is a second step you will need to take to insure your house plans are in compliance with local codes. Some areas of North America have very strict engineering requirements. Examples of this would be, but not limited to, earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Coast, hurricane risk areas of the Florida, Gulf & Carolina Coasts. New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and parts of Illinois require review by a local professional as well. If you are building in these areas, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your building department. If you aren’t sure, building departments typically have a handout they will give you listing all of the items they require to submit for and obtain a building permit.
