Building a structure without plans is like assembling a piece of furniture without instructions, or baking a casserole without a recipe. Having architectural plans to use for construction, bidding, and permitting provide you with guidance and direction for how the project is to be built, and how the finished product is supposed to look and function. All plans are drawn to be compliant with the current building codes to help your project move along smoothly and limit the amount of issues that can arise in construction inspections.


Material estimating services are also offered along with the architectural plans. I know it can be difficult trying to compare estimates from multiple suppliers, because each estimator may figure quantities and material usage differently. When you start with an itemized material list, your suppliers are pricing the same materials and you can easily compare package costs.
