Hello, is it possible to purchase plans/blueprints from this site? If not, what to do when you find one on here you like? Thanks!
If you find a floorplan that you like on the site, it’s a good idea to bring it to an architect as the inspiration for what you want. They should be able to work with it.
Do you have a rough idea of what you are looking for regarding the style and layout?
yes, we like a plan on here, but would like to purchase blueprints for the plumbing etc. An architect is a couple thousand dollars in my area. We can’t afford that.
You can try contacting the site owners. Maybe they have a higher detail/definition copy than what’s on the site.
If you have a tech college close, we went to one for ours and the draftsman was very reasonable my priced! We drew our layout and dimensions and he drew up the actual blueprint. I think it was about $600 and he’s licensed he just teaches at the college to the students instead of a “firm”. Might be worth looking into for your area.
A tech college is a great idea. I never even would have thought to reach out to one.
Thank you very much for your suggestions. I will look into them for sure!!
In general, it can be hard to find blueprints on the internet that include detailed plumbing because that can change based on the size of the pipes, etc. A local contractor may be a better source of information on that part.
Let us know what you discover! I’m sure the question is going to come up a lot.
I will do that thank you!
So I found that Hanson Pole Buildings will do blueprints. They are only about 700$. If you choose to use them they take that off the price of the kit.
That’s not a bad deal!
I like their printer.
I’m assuming they do a bunch to go along with their products so they should have some decent experience.
That’s a great deal! Nice to find someone who offers that!
I am having the same problem!! The architect wants 10,000 to 12,000 an hour (that’s what he wrote!) to do one drawing and then another 12,000-16000 to do another drawing. What the heck?!? It’s a barn! I have a program to do the floor plans. It’s not great for roofs or stairs or visualizing the outside. May need to find something else. Any suggestions??
Those are insane prices. I would definitely talk to someone other than that architect.
This article has a lot of good ideas and actually lists a few companies that may be helpful.
Have you had any luck with the Hansen blueprints? I’m curious to see what they contain.
We decided to go with another company. We were able to save a good chunk. My husband is going to build it. We needed prints because we were going to hire someone to build it.
Nice! I hope we get to see the end result (we like pictures of the building process too).
