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 on expanding 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 home. We are working on onboarding architects with different specialties, providing you with various styles. By doing this, we can better serve the industry’s 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 working with an architect, we must make sure our goals align. We take quality very seriously. We want to ensure a certain level on this platform 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 those who do not believe in what 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 our work. 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 to ensure they aren’t used.
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 know that building is a big endeavor. We also know that you might be able to find house plans that can provide 95% of what it is you’re looking for.
The good news is that it is very likely we will be able to make the alterations. The final product can have what it is you are looking for!
Depending on the changes you wish 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 purchase house plans at the price of stock ones. The reality is that our architects have spent many hours designing these plans. The benefit of selling them is that they can be sold repeatedly.
By doing that, the architect gets their compensation over time, instead of having one single customer pay the full price of making house 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 cannot help you ensure that homes live up to building codes in your region.
You will usually need a local architect or engineer to sign off on it.
The conditions are the same if you choose to purchase from us or a platform similar to ours. Other platforms won’t be able to ensure compliance with local regulations either.
- 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.
We also work with users who want custom designs instead of stock products. Sometimes, that is right. They are not the ones we sell the most of.
Our main offer is to offer something relatively standardized but can be used by various users. Getting a custom option might be better for people looking for something more unique. 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 one, your situation is different. Examples may include modern home 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 are very similar to another previously built house. Then it is possible to reuse the design created at that time.
We don’t want to discourage you from contacting us if you can’t 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 creating something from scratch takes time!
The cost of having a product drawn from scratch will depend on the project’s complexity.
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. We will require that you pay a certain portion upfront in those cases. 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 you want. It will then really allow the architect to share their expertise with 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 can offer you depends on the number of hours we expect 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 by understanding what you are looking for. It will make it easier for our architects to feel 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 number of edits rounds. When more edits need to be made, we may start charging an hourly rate instead.
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 can make sure you get the best possible result.
Certain things will make it significantly easier to work with customers. Having a section that clarifies expectations is one way to ensure we provide quality service at a reasonable cost. The custom home option is a premium service that allows you to make the changes 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 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 various factors. The level of detail varies a lot between the different options. The amount of time an architect has put into their work will usually be reflected in the price. It isn’t the only metric that determines the price.
There is a range of different considerations that have been made throughout the process. Figuring out what the right price would be for each plan is time-consuming.
The more people purchase each product, the more we will lower the price for that specific product. It allows the architects to manage still to get fair compensation for their work as several users purchase it. We charge more for some of the more distinctive options. We know that how many of our users will be interested in those designs is limited. With architects sometimes spending hundreds of hours, they want to get adequate pay for their hard work. You will find suitable houses for your average family and the most affordable options on the platform.
You may be interested in ensuring that you get the best price when you are crafting your home. We also don’t want you to be spending an excessive amount of time scouring the internet. You could otherwise be spending that time with your family!
To avoid 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 big. 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 create 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 important things 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 number of family members? You will have to consider that when you’re choosing various aspects. The style of the house, the size, and various features are all important things to consider. It doesn’t work if you’re making choices for your family now that you know you will be changing within a couple of years. If you plan on having a baby soon, you must 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 always recommend that you choose a home that has a bedroom more than you thought you’d 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. Those permits will also need to be changed if your construction plans change. Figure out what it is that you want. Make the right choice by picking the house plans. You’ll be saving yourself time and money.
Who wouldn’t appreciate having an extra bedroom used as an office? The extra space is convenient when you have guests coming over. Few people complain that they ended up building a house that has one bedroom too many. Some families didn’t 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. We suggest you follow 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 many different styles, ranging from small homes to massive mansions. We also have architects and support staff ready to help you out if you ever have a question. The important thing is that you sit down with your family and decide which things are important. 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 to determine features sorted by the most to least important ones. You can start making a list of the features and score every feature on a scale going from 0-10. When you go over the list, you can figure out which features are realistic. Which of the features aren’t realistic for the house you’re building?
We understand that it may not be all the features you want that you will get. It will allow you to ensure that you’re getting the features you both desire. You will also get realistic features. Many people have a desire to live in a mansion. It may not necessarily be realistic that you try and build one.
We have a lot of homes available for people with bigger budgets. You may be looking to build a big, luxurious home. We’re also on a mission to make sure that our platform can benefit those with smaller needs. We do this by ensuring 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 reading all the information we included on our FAQ page. We have listed a bunch of questions and answers regarding the process.

Before you proceed, we have various other pages explaining the philosophy we abide by. It includes what type of platform we’re trying to build. If you’re interested in knowing more about the people who run the platform, check it out.
No matter where you are in the home building process, we want to help you out. Perhaps you are still researching what it would require for you to start building a home. 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 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 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.
We are not just trying to sell you house plans with this platform. Rather, we want to prepare you for the entire experience. Suppose we can help you throughout the process. We feel like we have achieved our goal, even if we don’t sell you the design that you end up building. The process is extensive and 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 needs. Then you will choose the corresponding house plans that match those needs. When that has been done, you will need to determine how much work you intend on doing yourself.
If it is your first time building a house, we recommend working 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 apply 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 the cost. 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. You will have to factor into your family’s housing situation.
If you are on a strict schedule, you may want to select a contractor carefully. 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 many months. That is why you must choose a contractor you will be able to get along with. You want to avoid changing 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 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 important choices?
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 help you stay on track and 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 an 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 many 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.
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 most relevant designs. We need to be sure that we are focusing on doing one thing well. If we start offering contractor-matching as a service, we may end up being mediocre at what we do.
It is not unlikely that we may choose to offer the service in the future. When we feel we have caught up on all the other things, we want to do. That will not happen soon. We encourage you to read the various blog posts if you are just getting started. We created extensive articles on choosing a contractor, among other things.
