House Plans Drafting Services

At UR CAD Services, you’ll find the very best in affordable CAD Services for home plans. The main purpose of construction drawings (also called plans, blueprints, or working drawings) is to show what is to be built, while the specifications focus on the materials, installation techniques, and quality standards. The construction drawings and specification together, fully describe all the materials and products that are required to construct a building. A typical house plans consists of the below plan sheets:

Foundation Plan

As part of a house plan set, this Plan representation indicating the general design intent of the foundation. The foundation plan will show a slab, crawl space, or basement. The foundation plan is a plan view drawing, in section, showing the location and size of footings, piers, columns, foundation walls, and supporting beams. A foundation plan typically include footings for foundation walls, piers, and columns (hidden lines). Typically this includes the footing layout, post and beams, and extent of structural slabs, depending on what type of foundation is intended.

Dimensioned plans indicating the layout of rooms, walls, doors, and windows. Floor plans are usually drawn to scale and will indicate room types, room sizes, and wall lengths.

Electrical Plans


As part of the building plans, the electrical floor plan is sometimes called as electrical drawing or wiring diagram. It is a type of technical drawing that delivers visual representation and describes circuits and electrical systems. It consists of symbols and lines that showcase the engineer's electrical design to its clients. This drawings indicates the location of lighting fixtures, switches and outlets, showing lighting design intent and layout.

Construction Notes and Details

General notes are important for proper interpretation of the construction drawings, but like many things, more does not always mean better. These details may include the foundation, interior walls, exterior walls, floors, stairways, and / or roof details. General notes used on drawings should be carefully selected and written so as not to duplicate, paraphrase, or contradict other contract documents. The final additions come during the construction Phase with modifications, the final components included in the legal Construction Documents. The Construction Documents contain contract forms, conditions of the contract, specifications, and drawings.
