House plans, designs & layouts From Trusted Architects & Designers
Building your dream.
A little information.
We work together with skilled architects and designers. We want to give them a platform where their work can be brought to life.
By combining the work of several architects and designers, we ensure that you find just the house plan that works for you.
Browse our website to find the best designs offered by a bunch of selected architects.
We have a growing number of options that we are excited to show you! You will hopefully love one so much that you choose to buy one of them! If not, you are at the least getting enough inspiration to help you forward on your journey.
We have a pretty thorough FAQ section that you can find a link to at the bottom of the page. We have answered a bunch of the most common questions that people ask. At Passion Plans, we’re committed to working with you!
While we are still a relatively new platform, we are growing at an impressive rate.
That also means that we may have a limited set of options in a specific category currently. We are working to expand our offering so that we are better able to meet the demands of our users.
You can browse our platform. Your project will only become a success if you get exactly the floor plan that matches your family’s needs. We encourage you to seriously consider what those are!
We do not specialize in one specific type of homes. We are working on onboarding architects with different specialties. This will allow us to better be able to serve the industry’s various needs. That way you can find the option that best suits you.
We’ll be adding more payment systems as we get going. If there is a payment system you to use that hasn’t been listed, feel free to reach out.
If you’re an architect wanting to sell on here, we encourage you to get in contact with us. We might just be able to start working together!
Before we start working with any architect, it is important that we make sure our goals align. We take quality very seriously. We want to ensure a certain level on this platform so as to have happy customers.
We strongly believe that we would rather work with fewer architects that believe in our mission. We do not want to allow ones on that do not believe in what it is we are trying to build.
Passion Plans is a platform that is growing at an incredible rate. We believe that is mainly due to the quality we put into the work we do. Quality relationships with ambitious architects are key to our growth!
We strive to be very cooperative. However, we can unfortunately not accommodate refunds due to the nature of the product. It’s just hard to enforce when our products are digital.
Once you have received the plans, it would be prohibitively hard for us to ensure they aren’t used.
If you are getting serious about wanting to build a home, the first step is to look at your family’s needs.
Are you looking for something with 3 or 4 bedrooms, like the average family might be looking for? Perhaps what best serves your needs are something that would fit on a narrow lot. Are you just browsing the platform and getting inspiration? What sort of budget do you have? We have some very interesting options available that include H-shaped, U-shaped and L-shaped homes.
We know that building is a big endeavor. We also know that you might be able to find house plans that are able to provide 95% of what it is your looking for. The good news is that it is very likely we will be able to make the alterations. The final product can have exactly what it is you are looking for!
Depending on the changes you are wishing for, it might be something that will take our designers an hour. It could also be something that takes significantly longer to do.
Custom changes are something that we do on an hourly basis. The cost for these changes is in addition to the purchase of the house plans. We do believe we charge an amount that is fair for these changes. We also want you to understand that certain changes just take longer to implement than others.
We understand you may want to be able to purchase house plans at the price of stock ones. The reality is that our architects have spent many hours designing these plans. The benefit from selling them is that they can be sold over and over. By doing that the architect gets their compensation over time. That is instead of having one single customer pay the entire price of making the plans.
Local building departments often have their own sets of codes that they require homes live up to. We strive to have the homes published on this site live up to the most common standards. However, we are not able to help you in ensuring that homes live up to building codes in your region.
You will usually need to have a local architect or engineer sign off on it.
No matter if you choose to purchase from us or a platform similar to ours, the conditions are the same. Other platforms won’t be able to ensure compliance with local regulations either.
We mentioned this in a previous section. There are certain types of changes that will take a lot longer to implement than others.
If you are looking to make alterations, it is important you do not choose a model that is too small. It takes a lot of time to scale down a house model. When you are scaling down, it often starts interfering with elements such as the plumbing and electrical.
Here is a list of some of the changes we often get asked to evaluate in terms of feasibility.
The closer the existing blueprints are to your final product, the better. It means you will have to spend less to bring it up to the level you are hoping.
- Adjusting the roof pitch of the home
- Adding or removing windows, assuming no electrical needs changing. It also assumes no interfering with the layout of the house.
- Making a garage bigger so as to include an additional car.
- Changing the garage entry location.
- Minor adjustments to rooms, especially when it requires no external restructuring.
- Rearranging a room layout.
- Changing the materials used for exterior surfaces.
- Smaller interior design changes that won’t affect the plumbing or electrical.
- Reversing blueprints.
- Rearranging room locations or doing significant redesign of kitchens or bathrooms.
- Changing the type of roof
- Depending on the complexity of the task, doing home additions may be a substantial task.
- Changes to the floor plan that include substantially increasing or decreasing square footage.
- Change the amount of floors the house has.
There is a fee associated with having architects evaluate how much work is required in incorporating your wishes. They will additionally need to understand exactly what it is you desire. That is done before they’re able to move forward with the project.
Please visit our contact page to best find out how to request getting changes made to existing floor plans. You may have bought them from other platforms or from other architects. You also acknowledge and agree that you have the necessary rights to alter the existing ones. You liberate Passion Plans from any potential responsibility from requesting alterations.
We also work with users who want custom designs, as opposed to the stock products that we offer. There may be times when that is what is right, but they are definitely not the ones that we sell the most of.
Our main offer is to offer something that is relatively standardized but can be used by a variety of users. For the people looking for something more unique, getting a custom option might be the better option. Those might stand out a little bit more!
We are offering what we are offering because we cater to the bigger mass market. If you have more specific wishes like wanting a unique, your situation is different. Examples may include modern homes or luxurious mansions. That is when it is likely better that you choose to work with a skilled architect who can make your dreams come true. For most families, the needs they are very similar to another previously built house. Then it is possible to reuse the design that was created at that time.
We don’t want to discourage you from contacting us if you aren’t able to find the appropriate solution. We also want you to have a realistic expectation that it does cost more money to go custom. Working with an architect and create something from scratch takes time!
The cost to have a product drawn from scratch will depend on the complexity of the project.
We will sometimes quote you a specific price. There are also a lot of cases where you are better off being quoted an hourly rate. In those cases, we will require that you pay a certain portion up front. The rest of it is paid as certain milestones are reached. This way we make sure that you get paid, but we can also accurately track the progress on your house plans. This may be beneficial if you aren’t entirely sure what it is that you want. It will then really allow the architect to share their expertise wit you. You’ll do the necessary rounds of editing that you may want for your project.
We don’t want to overcharge you for such a custom piece of work either. The price we are able to offer you work for depends on the amount of hours we expect that a project will take us.
You may want a custom solution. However, you still don’t want to end up paying too much money either. We encourage you to start off by getting a good understand of what exactly it is you are looking for. It will make it easier for our architects to get a feeling of how long the project will take to complete. If we need to do several rounds of editing, this will also be reflected in the price that you are quoted. Our quote may also be conditional on a specific amount of rounds of edits. When more edits keep needing to be made, we may instead start charging an hourly rate.
We love working on custom marvels with our users. This section is not meant as a section intended to discourage you from reaching out about such projects. By having a mutual understanding of the process, we are able to make sure you get the best possible result as well.
There are certain things that will make it significantly easier to work with customers. Having a section that clarifies expectations is one way we make sure we provide quality service at a reasonable cost. The custom home option is a premium service that allows you the freedom to make the changes that you want. You’ll truly get a solution that stands out! We also allow you to work with specific architects. Let us know if you want a house that is inspired by one of the other houses that we have available.
Do you have any additional questions regarding the process of having a custom one designed? The first step you need to take is to go to our contact page to get in touch with us. A member of our team will reach out to you to make sure you have the experience you’ve been looking for. We want to make sure you end up with the house of your dreams.
We look forward to working with you on your dream!
The blueprints that we offer on this site vary in price depending on a range of different factors. The level of detail vary a lot between the different options. The amount of time that an architect has put into their work will usually be reflected in the price. It definitely isn’t the only metric that determines the price.
There are a range of different considerations that have been made throughout the process. Figuring out what the right price would be for each individual plan is time-consuming.
The more people purchase each product, the more we will be able to lower the price for that specific product. It allows the architects still manage to get fair compensation for their work as it is being purchased by several users. We char more for some of the more distinctive options. We know that it is rather limited how many of our users will be interested in those designs. With architects sometimes spending hundreds of hours, they want to get adequate pay for their hard work. You will find houses that are suitable for your average family are also the most affordable options on the platform.
You may be interested in making sure that you are getting the best price when you are crafting your home. We also don’t want you to be spending an excess amount of time scouring the internet. You could otherwise be spending that time with your family!
To avoid you spending a lot of time searching the internet, we provide a 28 day price guarantee on our designs. We have a lot of house plans that aren’t offered on other websites. We also have some that are. We try and make sure that you aren’t charged more on our website. We will provide a price match. We also refund you the difference between what you paid here and the other website that you found them on.
That means that you can easily get started on your project with a clear mind. There’s no reason to delay applying for those permits just because you’re trying to save money.
Taking the first step towards building your dream home is always a big one. There are many steps in the process. You will be embarking on an adventure. You will be determining the various needs for the home that you will be living in for a long time to come. It’s not quite as simple as simply renting a house. You’re making a major financial commitment for many years to come! You’re not just choosing to move into temporary housing that you can easily move out of. You’re committing a lot of money to creating your dream!
We want to be a part of that journey and help make sure that you get out of it what you want. It means you’ll be making some serious soul-searching. You will need to think extensively about the things that are important to you and your family. This includes what your needs are currently and what they will be in the future.
Are you planning on changing the amount of family members? you will have to take that into consideration when you’re choosing various aspects. The style of the house, the size and its various features are all important things to consider. It doesn’t work if you’re making choices for your family now that you know will be changing within a couple of years. If you are planning on having a baby in the near future, it’s important that you consider those changing needs. Finding the house plans that work for you is crucial. Perhaps you may want to consider a home with 4 bedrooms instead of 3.
We recommend always that you choose a home that has a bedroom more than you thought you’ll need. Doing so can turn out to have huge benefits at a later point. Sometimes the family ends up growing in size without you necessarily anticipating it. Sometimes your in-law may come for an unexpected visit. They might stay at your home slightly longer than you had planned.
In those cases, it’s nice to avoid feeling like you built a home that was too small. It’s significantly easier to adjust your home before you even start building it. Adjusting things further down the line is messy. You will need to apply for permits when you have purchased the design that you will be building. If your construction plans change, those permits will need to be changed as well. Figure out what it is that you really want. Make the right choice picking the house plans. You’ll be saving yourself time and money.
Who wouldn’t appreciate having an extra bedroom that can be used as an office? The extra space is very convenient whether or not you have guests coming over. There aren’t too many people complaining that they ended up building a house that had one bedroom too many. There are families that didn’t accurately anticipate their needs when they initially started the process.
What can we offer through the platform, and how do you get started? We work with a bunch of very talented architects. They spend a significant portion of the day creating the many beautiful designs that you can browse. The first place we suggest you start out is by following some of the links we have posted on the front page.
You can easily find houses by the style that you are interested in. Choose by the size that you may be interested in. We have a bunch of different styles, ranging all the way from small homes to massive mansions. If you ever have a question, we also have architects and support staff ready to help you out. The important thing is that you sit down with your family and you really decide which things are important for you. How do you make sure that your new home will include all those various things, assuming they’re reasonable?
We recommend that families not just make a list. Make it prioritized where you determine features sorted by the most to least important ones. You can start making a list of the features and score each single feature on a scale going from 0-10. When you go over the list you can start figuring out which of the features are realistic. Which of the features aren’t realistic for the house that you’re building?
We understand that it may not be all the features that you want that you will be able to get. It will at least allow you to make sure that you’re getting the features that you both desire. You will also get the features that are realistic. Many people have a desire to live in a mansion. It may, however, not necessarily be realistic that you try and build one.
We have a lot of homes available for people with bigger budgets. Those who may in fact be looking to build a big, luxurious home. We’re also on a mission to make sure that our platform is capable of benefiting those with smaller needs. We do this by making sure that we have a broad range of offerings on the site. Our designs span a broad range of categories.
There are a couple of options for you to consider now that you’re closer to pursuing your dream home. You may be at the point where you are ready to start looking at the house styles we offer. You may also be in a position where you’re still looking to get more information.
We always recommend that you read all the information we included on our FAQ page. We have listed a bunch of questions and answers regarding the process. It includes getting started with your home building project. We have also listed a bunch of practical information. You can use that page to better understand how we work together with architects and what to expect. You want to make sure you understand entire process and choose the right design.

Before you proceed, we have various other pages that explain the philosophy that we abide by. It includes what type of platform it is that we’re trying to build. If you’re interested in getting to know more about the people that run the platform, check it out.

Perhaps you have gotten to the point where you are now seriously looking for the right design. Either way, we can help you out regardless of where you are at in the process.
It is an exciting process, but it can also be scary. It is especially scary if you haven’t done your research, and you don’t know what to expect. For that specific reason, we have made a bunch of resources that can help you out. We have extensive articles that cover all the aspects of the process.
With this platform, we are not just trying to sell you house plans. Rather, we want to prepare you for the entire experience. If we can help you throughout the process. We feel like we have achieved our goal, and that is even if we don’t sell you the design that you end up building. The process is an extensive one that includes everything from applying for the necessary building permits to finding the right contractors to work with.
Before you start applying for permits, we always recommend that you get a good understanding of the process. Naturally, the very first step is to find out what it is that your family has a need for. Then you will choose the corresponding house plans that match those needs. When that has been done, you will need to find out how much of the work you intend on doing yourself.
If it is your first time building a house, we recommend that you work with an experienced general contractor. Even if you go through all the resources on the website, an experienced contractor will still be able to help you. They’ll make the entire process easier for you. They know how to submit an application to your local building department.
They know the best place in your city to buy vinyl flooring from. You may think you are saving yourself some money by being responsible for a large portion of the project. You need to figure out if it is worth it, and what the cost is. Perhaps you decide that you want to do a lot of the work yourself. You may end up spending an additional six months longer as a consequence. That is something you will have to factor into your family’s housing situation.
If you are on a strict schedule, you may want to be especially careful in selecting a contractor. Be sure to ask for references, and preferably choose someone who doesn’t just build houses. Find someone who has experience with ones similar to the one you want to build.
Make sure that you ask them a lot of relevant questions. Do not be afraid to turn them down if you don’t believe you will work well with them. You are about to start a process that will take a lot of months. That is why it is important that you choose a contractor you will be able to get along with. You want to avoid having to change the contractor after a couple of months. It is always a lot of time spent in the transition, which is likely to delay the project.
Make sure that you get an understanding of how their last projects went. Were those families happy with the entire process? Ask them what sort of conflicts came up.
How did they deal with the conflicts when they happened? Were they able to work with the families in order to come up with reasonable compromises? Were costly mistakes made along the way that shouldn’t have been made? How were they helping the families make sure that they were making the choices that were important to them?
It is important to know that you can make mistakes through this whole process. It is not the end of the world. The important thing is that you don’t make too many big mistakes. How will the contractor will help you stay on track and on schedule? You are supposed to feel the contractor is on your side and is helping make sure the project goes smoothly. It may not be easy to accept when a contractor tells you that he thinks you should be making a different decision.
He is still the experienced person who has dealt with the building department many times before.
We have made extensive descriptions for the design categories to make it easier for you! We talk extensively about the important things you should consider for a duplex. Some are crucial if your main goal is to build wealth. That’s just one example of how we try and help you make the right housing decision!
Our main business is currently to sell house plans. We are not currently offering to help our users find the contractor for their project. We are helping users all over the country become better equipped for the adventure ahead of them. We do not currently believe that we have a good way of matching homeowners with the right contractor.
We are still at the stage of our business where we are learning how to do a lot of different things. We are actively trying to find more architects that we can work with. It is tempting for us to start offering a service where we connect you with some of the contractors that we believe in. However, we feel that we need to get better at other things before that is a direction we start going in.
However, before we consider doing that, we have a lot of other stuff we want. We believe we need to get better at matching our users with the designs that are the most relevant for them. We need to be sure that we are focusing on doing one thing really well. If we start offering contractor matching as a service, we may end up being mediocre at the things that we do.
It is not unlikely that we may choose to offer the service in the future. It will be when we feel we have caught up on all the other things that we want to do. That is not in the near future. If you are just getting started, we encourage you to read the various blog posts that we publish. We created extensive articles on how to choose a contractor, among other things.
