Starting the Plans

The plans in our catalog and on our Web site are a sample of the many customized styles of homes and additions designed and built through the teamwork of Habitat Post & Beam and its homeowners.  We welcome you to bring us your ideas, and together we'll develop a design that reflects your style and meets your housing needs, post and beam home budget and site requirements.

The Design Deposit

The initial Design Deposit is applied in full toward the total material package price. At this stage, preliminary floor plans and elevation plans are provided, and plan revisions/modifications requested by the purchaser and acceptable to the Habitat Post & Beam design/engineering department will be made; there is no separate design/architect fee for making changes to your plans.  Material package specifications and material package pricing will be estimated based on these drawings.  Please note that the material package price will be updated to reflect the addition or deletion of materials/changes to your plan.  For example, if you make changes or reduce the size of the design that would necessitate fewer materials or that would simplify the design, the price will typically decrease, whereas if you increase the size or make the design more complex, the price would typically increase.
