Laura and I really enjoyed working with you on the design of our home. You kept us involved in the process so when it was completed it was exactly as we wanted. Your communication and f0llow through was so appreciated. We would recommend you and your process highly. Thanks for completing it on time and on the budget we agreed on.
“Great company to work with they designed both my new house and airplane hanger; very responsive and easy to work with. Definitely worth every penny.”
“Craig is great to work with, he makes it easy since we can do most of the home design through email. He put on paper exactly what we wanted and gave good insight on ways to construct. I would recommend him to anyone that would like to get an affordable custom home plan. I can’t wait to see the finished product!”
Much More than Just Spokane House Plans
My name is Craig Swanson and I have been drafting Spokane house plans for several years. Actually, I do much more than just draft house plans for houses to be built in Spokane. If you have a project in mind, any building project, then you need a set of plans whether it be custom home plans, addition plans, shop plans, tool shed plans or deck plans. I draft plans for all these, and they are all that you need to get estimates, permits and the thing built. And you do not have to live or plan to build in Spokane given our wonderful worldwide web which has enabled me to work with clients living in other parts of the country whom I never had the privilege to meet in person.
One thing I will say is that I believe what sets me apart from other drafting companies is that I have spent many years with my tool bags on learning exactly how to frame these projects that I design as well as how to put in the footings and foundations and install the cabinets and do the painting and tiling.
Each year I do the general contracting on a custom home or two and maybe a remodel project. All this experience makes me a resource of information on all aspects of the upcoming project that you are searching the web looking for someone to draw up plans for. I can answer many questions about all phases of the building experience from planning to final occupancy permit, as well as provide my list of suppliers and sub-contractors that I have used for years and will treat you as they do me.
Currently I am building a home that has never been built in our area. It is an ADU house plan design that I came up with that I thought needed to be built in the real world, in today’s world. No one is building it anywhere much as far as I know but I believe it it something that addresses a growing niche in America. Learn what an ADU is and why I believe it is far past being a need for the present and certain to be a fixture of the future. Click on picture to left.

TIPS TO CREATING A CUSTOM HOME DESIGN
People come to me at all level of preparedness. Most have given it a lot of thought and done hours of research and a surprising number have learned software programs like Punch or Turbo Floor Plan ( I recommend Sketchup). Read this story on how to work on your own design.
Here is a recent custom home plan drafting example that is a common scenario:
Rob and Amy had found a lot at Shelly Lake in the Spokane Valley that they wanted to build a custom home on. After scouring the internet, they found a few plans that were close but not quite all that they were looking for and so Rob found me to help them out.
Obviously Rob is talented and he is involved in residential construction and so he came up with some great sketches. In addition to this rendering he provided me with a floor plan that was based on something he had found on the internet. I took these and began building a 3-d model in sketchup. Sending him several videos along the way to get his feedback.
Like most of my clients, Rob was surprised by how many decisions he had to make during the design development portion of the plan drafting process. By showing him the 3d model
through videos that I make of my screen while I am talking and explaining, he was able to visualize what I was discussing and then give me the feedback I needed to move forward and create exactly what they had in mind.
Rob took the plans that I produced from our collaborative efforts to his
builder,Lindsey Construction, who took them to the building department for
permitting and got the show on the road. The house is now in the final
phase of construction and will soon be ready for move-in.
Craig designed my home from a sketched out drawing I gave him. His understanding of the building process and great visualization of what I was requesting transformed my dreams into our wonderful home. His video presentation in 3D really helps to walk you through your home and get a feel for the rooms. I would recommend Craig to anyone building a home, Why pay $ for a pre-designed plan when for nearly the same price you can build what you want?
