and Altering Plans
Once you have found a plan that interests you, it can be purchased through the links at the bottom of each specific plan. If you find a plan that seems nearly right, but needs some tweaking to make it perfect, some of the architects and designers featured here are quite willing to customize their plans to suit your needs. Once you purchase the generic set of plans presented here, you can communicate directly with the person who designed them for fine tuning. The cost of such subsequent modification varies according to the fee schedule of the particular designer, and is a matter of negotiation between you and him or her. DreamGreenHomes.com is not involved in after-sale modifications.
Each of the various architects or designers afilliated with DreamGreenHomes.com offers a different level of detail on the sets of plans for sale. Most of the plans should be adequate to submit to building departments, but of course these requirements are different for each locality, so we can't guarantee that everything will be acceptable. For instance, in some cases, local authorities require the stamp of a local architect or engineer, so this might be something that you would have to follow through on. Some of the plans have plumbing and electrical diagrams, and some don't. All of the plans show enough detail to build from. See our Warranty and Disclaimer for more information.
