About Our Plans

Living Concepts house plan designs are distinctive, functional, and satisfying to live in. Great care has been taken and much thought put into the benefits each house plan promotes to your lifestyle and for ease of living.

However, since building codes are subject to change, and local interpretations of building codes often vary, we cannot warrant compliance with any specific codes or ordinances.  The purchaser is responsible for verifying that our house plans comply with all local building codes and are suitable for a particular site before actual construction begins.  We recommend you consult with a local Builder, Architect and/or Engineer to assist you with this verification.  However, as Living Concepts Home Plans has no control over the Builder, Architect, Engineer, or Subcontractors you choose, we cannot be responsible for the advice or assistance you receive from them or for the methods they use.

Square footage calculations for each house plan are approximate and include exterior stud wall thickness and masonry. Consult working drawings for exact calculations for construction cost estimates.  Renderings of house plans are an artist’s conception only. Photographed homes may vary from the construction drawings due to modifications made by the owner or builder to suit personal preferences.

All Living Concepts home plans are protected by Federal Copyright Laws and unauthorized reproduction, sale or use of these plans is prohibited.  With the purchase of a Living Concepts home plan building package, the purchaser is licensed to construct the house one time only.  Additional Re-use Licenses may be purchased to construct it more than one time.  House plans and Licenses to build are non-transferable and cannot be resold.

Note:  Due to regional variations in climate and building codes, mechanical and plumbing layouts are not provided. These should be supplied by local subcontractors.  House plans may need to be adjusted to meet current and local building codes and requirements.

Note:  Photographed homes may have been modified from their original construction documents to suit individual homeowner’s preferences.

What are house plans and what’s included in a set of house plans?

Your house plans and specifications are the documents used by your builder and contractors to instruct them on how to build your new home.  Each set of house plans includes a fully dimensioned foundation plan with information on footings and framing; floor plans; framing plans; front, side, and rear elevations; roof plan; misc. details and sections necessary for construction; and a basic electrical layout.

Each set of house plans includes detailed documentation which fully describes the specifications of the materials needed to complete the building of your home. You can take your detailed house plans to any building supply company or a building contractor to get precise estimates of the total cost to build your home.

House plans are used to provide the builder with a complete set of two-dimensional instructions on exactly how to construct the home. The most common sheet sizes of house plans for the construction of a new home are 18″ x 24″,  24″ x 36″, and 30″ x 42″.

We offer several house plan packages ranging from 1-Set (for study purposes only), PDF’s, or AutoCAD files. Once you have selected a house plan to view in more detail, click on the ‘Choose your plan package’ button to view the house plan packages that are available for the home you are interested in.

For individuals who will be making modifications to their house plan, you will need to purchase either AutoCad files or PDF’s, the latter being the most popular.  These give an Architect, builder or other construction professional the ability to make minor changes to the drawings without having to redraw the house plan.  For more major modifications such as making changes to exterior walls or adding/subtracting floors, we recommend you order the AutoCAD files, if it is available for that plan.

A typical set of house plans will include…

  • Dimensioned and detailed Foundation Plan (Type as listed on home plan page).
  • Dimensioned and detailed Floor Plans.
  • Framing Plans (In some cases, may be shown directly on floor plans).
  • Complete Front, Side and Rear Elevations.
  • Roof Plan (As deemed necessary for construction).

  • Typical Foundation Details, Wall Sections, and Cornice Details necessary for construction.
  • Separate Electrical Plan (In some cases, may be shown directly on floor plans).
