RESIDENTIAL DESIGN DRAFTING SERVICE.
Specializing in custom plans for your home design ideas

Design Process

Getting Started

You may be wondering how you can get started with getting plans done for your home design project. You don’t really have the time or the experience to create the necessary working drawings needed to get a building permit. You need help. Munson Drafting Service offers complete 2D and 3D design services.

Munson Drafting Service has been in business for over 15 years. We have experience in all types of residential design projects including: new home construction, additions, remodels, porches, decks, garages, and pole barns.

We have learned that in any building or remodeling project a well thought out plan benefits everyone involved and saves time and money.

Munson Drafting Service takes special care to understand the unique needs of each of our clients to design and create the custom home design plans that not only meet but exceed their expectations. Using cutting-edge home design, building information modeling, and 3D rendering software we will work on your plan together. You will have input on your plan through every step of the process in creating a complete set of working drawings. You will be able to see exactly what your project will look like before the drawings are finalized.

Working With Us

When you sign up for our design services, the first thing that we will need to do is to sit down with you and discuss your project. This initial consultation is free.

Following the consultation, we will prepare a proposal which outlines the scope of the work required to prepare the plans. Once a fee and a tentative timeline are agreed upon we will begin the design and the drawing up of the preliminary plans. An initial payment will be required at this time.

Preliminary plans consist of floor plans, demolition plans if a remodel or addition, elevations, and a site plan. Some other work may also be required including building section(s). During this process we may need to consult with you, usually over the phone or by email, from time to time to make sure that everything will be to your satisfaction. Once finished with the preliminary plans, we will arrange a 2nd meeting with you to present you the plans. You will have the chance to make any changes to the plans without incurring extra change fees. You can also give a copy of the plans to your contractors so that they can work up job and material estimates.

The next step in our design services is to draw up the construction documents needed for obtaining a building permit. A typical plan set includes: floor plans, demolition work for remodels and additions, elevations, building sections, roof plan, foundation plan, framing plans, electrical plan, structural notes, building details, site plan, braced wall and tie down details. Door and window schedules are also included. Whatever is required by your building department will be included in the plans.

If a structural engineer is required, we can consult with an engineer that we have worked with on other projects or we can work with one that you provide. An engineer will provide all the necessary structural details and calculations required to meet the structural building codes. We will then draw up the structural details by the engineer into the plans. We will require a final payment at this time. You may also be required to pay any fees charged by the engineer.

Our design services include creating a PDF of the plan set, which can then be printed onto 24″ x 36″ plan sheets (“blue prints”). If some of the work had to be engineered, the engineer will need to approve and stamp the plans. They can then be given to the appropriate building department to get a building permit.
