This page contains sample architectural drawings used for a custom home design.
The sample architectural drawings you see here were created for an experienced builder. (Translation: This is a “Builders’ Set”, not a “Bid Set”.) Additional drawings, such as Structural, Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing, Civil and Landscaping were included in the drawing package but are not shown below. Also not shown are the soils report, specifications, material legends & truss shop drawings.
The architectural drawings for this project were completed in about 60 days from conception to planscheck submittal. Construction time was less than 6 months on a pad that was ready for construction. Valuation at construction was approximately $550,000 (2006) and is estimated to be $1,013,000 (2013).
We have redacted all references to the owner as well as the project location. In addition, we have placed a watermark on the drawings to prevent unauthorized use. Some minor creative license was taken for the preparation of drawings for the internet including a change in the Titleblock and removal of revision notations. Clicking on the image below will open a pdf file in full print size (30″x42″). Files are large and may take a while to open.
Obviously, the drawings themselves are copyrighted and may not be used in whole or part. However, remember that the “Design” (ie: look & style) as well as the “arrangement of spaces” is also considered to be copyrighted. These images have been provided to help you understand a typical scope of services that may be offered on a typical project.
