We’re a production drafting house that services many different professionals and in different types of projects.
We produce five different types and three of those can be applied to residential projects, which are the most common for customers who might be viewing this video.
Those three could be called a permit set, a construction set, and an architectural set. A permit set is still, in our case, a very beautiful plan set that has basically everything you need to build it. It’s a little bit deluxe for a permit set.
A permit set is defined by – it gives you all the information it needs to get a permit for that project. Now, a construction set is one step up from that. A construction set has a little more detail and definition in terms of the construction method. Now, if the customer has a budget to work with that’s got some breathing room and they want to bid the project out over many different contractors, construction sets are very helpful for that. That way, there’s not a lot of assumption about the building method, and everybody’s bid can be more closely comparing apples to apples instead of apples to oranges.
Now, an architectural set – we actually do quite a few of these – is the most deluxe set of residential planning construction. We’re able to do some really remarkable things with our CAD software. We can actually put the view you have from your particular house outside on the models that we create. When you’re looking at a 3D model and you’re looking out the window, you see the actual view that your property has. We can even do all the interior designing, all the cabinets and window treatments and furniture and finishes and faucets and everything. That’s where architectural plan sets come into play. We’re really defining things to a much higher level.
We don’t actually recommend that people spend more on their plans than they need. Again, someone who wants to save our customers money at every turn. We’ll always start you out with the least expensive option.
