I would like some info on home plans that you can buy from a catalog or at homeplans.cm
I live in Houston,Tx and wonder if there are certain codes or restrictions that would keep me from building a home from one of these catalogs.Any success stories or horror stories would be great.
well, i have worked at architectural firm and people have ordered plans from sou***** liv*** magazine as well as or places and the plans were a joke. basic everything... to the extent they look nothing like the pictures of the finished home. so i would rather go have a home designer draw them up it would be a little bit more but the plans would be complete. a set of those cheesy plans will run you $700 to what? $2,000. the home designer here run from $1,000 to $5,000. i dunno about your area but a good place here would be about $1,500 and the plans would look good and you would know what your house would look like and what your getting.
