Page one is our Cover Page which consists of a black and white rendering, the sheet number index for the plan, the plan name, and our company’s contact information.
The next page is our Foundation Plan. This sheet provides an example of a slab-designed foundation. We also offer basements and pier-and-beam foundations as modifications to any of our plans (subject to a designer’s review.) Basements and pier-and-beam foundation plans require a modification quote.
First Floor Plan
This is our First Floor Plan. On this sheet you will receive all dimensions and notes for the first floor. All requisite aspects of the floor plan are precise, though the details of flooring material and non-structural aesthetics are left to the discretion of the buyer.
Second Floor Plan
This is our Second Floor Plan. On this sheet you will receive all dimensions and notes for the second floor. We pride ourselves on the accuracy of our measurements and dimensions on all of our plans. Exact flooring materials, appliance selection and non structural aesthetics are left to the discretion of the buyer.
First Floor Lighting & Electrical Plan
This is our First Floor Lighting and Electrical Plan. On this sheet you have a schematic of the lights, electrical plugs, phone locations, and code items such as smoke detectors. All of our plans are designed to the highest standards.
Second Floor Lighting & Electrical Plan
This is our Second Floor Lighting and Electrical Plan. The same details are provided for both first and second floor. Please contact us so we may provide you a modification quote for any changes you wish to make to the original plan.
Front & Rear Elevations
This is our Front and Rear Elevations. Here you have the detailed drawings of the front and rear elevations of the home along with any notes and exterior dimensions that may be required to complete construction. The elevations show the contractor’s exterior materials, general architectural design intent, types of openings and other details. All of our elevations are drawn to ¼ scale.
Left & Right Elevations
This is our Left and Right Elevations. On this sheet you have the detailed drawings of the left and right sides of the home along with any notes and exterior dimensions that may be required to complete construction. The elevations show the contractor’s exterior materials, general architectural design intent, types of openings and other details. All of our elevations are drawn to ¼ scale.
This is our Roof Plan. This sheet roof plan is an integral piece of a well-designed set of elevations. Roof cuts are shown to demonstrate how the architectural design is intended to make the elevation aesthetically pleasing to the eye. From our roof plan, your builder has everything required to build a precise and beautifully designed roof. Our roof plans are drawn to ¼ scale.
Our roof plans are accurate, work properly and include numerous geometric cuts and angles of the elevations.
Many typical plan packages have four to six elevations on the roof plan. We feel that is not enough, so we may show as many as eight to ten – simply to verify the roof can be built the way it was designed. We pride ourselves on the accuracy and detail of our roof plans.
This is our Sections Page. Sections are used to further describe any architectural intent (beyond what is provided in the floor plan’s notation sections.) Not all of our plans include sections because they may not have been required with the original design.
Please feel free to contact us any time with questions regarding sections or any aspect of our floor plans. We offer plan modifications as well as new architectural design.
Every plan we sell comes with three standard typical detail sheets on construction. These sheets are used to cover a broad range of many everyday situations that may occur on a construction site. The detail sheets are current and accurate to the area and time of which the house was originally designed.

7) Why choose Dallas Design Group?
By Alice Wynn
Why are Architectural/Designer plans offered on blueprints? A blueprint is a type of paper-based reproduction of a technical drawing documenting an Architectural drawing. It is the standard method recognized and used to copy large Architectural and construction drawings. A blueprint then is a standard method of communication between the plan designer and the client. It is a pattern guide for building a house, for adding an addition to an existing house plan, erecting a townhouse, or a commercial building. Blueprints are plans, technical plans. They show the style, size, number of rooms, type of exterior, type of roof recommended etc. Building a home plan without a blueprint should be done by only the most experience professional. Once a client has a home plan designed and orders prints, they will receive blueprints from the printing company or from the Architect/Designer if they use in-house printing. The simplest way to find blueprints may be to buy a set of plans from an online source like Dallas Design Group. Searching through our home plan selection will allow you to look at many floor plans and styles of house plans to find the one that suits your criteria. This is a very economical option. Modifications to our blueprints can be made by our talented Designers. Our blueprints will include a foundation plan, the first floor plan and the second floor plan if the house you are interested in has a second floor. They will include a lighting and electrical plan, front and rear elevations, left and right elevations, and a roof plan. Many of our home plans have sections and all have a schematic foundation plan. Blueprints are professional detailed guides to building and are used on the job by many sub-contractors as well as the builder in charge of construction.
