The Benefits of Construction Plans in Canada

Myles Nelson McKenzie Design Canada-Custom Square Log Mountain Home-Construction Plans

As we tell most of my clients, a completed set of construction plans are really is a great tool for any size project. Whether it’s a custom home, home renovation, or a vacation cottage, construction plans provide a clear vision of the development for the project.

Building Cost Benefits of Construction Plans in Canada

Additionally with a complete set of construction plans from Myles Nelson McKenzie Design, you can get as they say,  “Apple to Apple” construction pricing from the many different building contractors. Construction pricing that is comparable to one another. You will be able to see 2-3 builders that have similar pricing and 1-2  builders that are way high or way low in pricing. It’s usually because they are too busy or they are eager to get the job and will bill in extras .

“Apple to Oranges” construction pricing, usually means that the clients will receive a variety of construction pricing with no similarity. This is primarily because they have inadequate construction plan documentation or no construction plans at all! 

Contractors will always have uncertainty, if they do not know exactly what or how the project scope is really suppose to be built.

Ideas, images, preliminary drawings all paint a good picture, but in the end with the current building codes, a completed set of construction plans really provides a clear picture to obtain the real building cost.

Site Plan for Custom Home | Virden, ManitobaThe lot size for the new home design is 50 ft by 125 ft deep. A decent size city lot. The exterior home style has character details of a prairie farmhouse home style.

Additionally, because of the residential home design that was developed, we created a large detached 2 car garage that is set towards the rear of the property.

The existing property landscape will be cleared out and a new low maintenance landscape design was also created for the property with new trees and low ground vegetation.

A Few Of The Custom Home Features

Our proposed 2 story custom home has large first floor open plan. Consisting of a living room, dining room and a full size kitchen with a large island. Also a powder room is located off the living room, kitchen area. The home design also has two bedrooms and two full size large bathrooms on the second floor as well. A large full size laundry room is located at head of the second floor stairs.

We also incorporated a small covered front entry porch and a large rear covered porch into the new home design. The rear porch is designed, so that in the future the clients can enclose it for additional inhabitable space. Both porches are accessible from the first floor.

The size of this custom home design for our clients in Virden, Manitoba is 1338.50 square feet, combined for both floors. The porch sizes are 32 square feet for the front covered porch and 108 square feet for the rear covered porch.
