Here is a great example of what SoftPlan's 3D animation function can do! We teamed up with Fine Homebuilding Magazine to help with their 2017 ProHome Projec...

My latest floor plan offering @ 2076.5 ft heated with 2 car garage. Plan can be customized for clients. I don't provide room sizes or dimensions until there is interest in this plan.

This plan represents my own work and cannot be copied or reproduced without written permission. A great starter home.

I'm having to exchange my CAD key for an updated key. As it stands now, it will be sometime next week before I can complete my latest plan. Stay tuned for affordable housing renderings. Tommy

Rent ~ buy ~ or Build? That age old question that deserves some thought. Realtor's would probably suggest buying a property currently on the market. Why? Quick easy sales translate into income without a lot of effort. Factor in costs to the Broker in Charge for subliminal expenses, and there are costs for client representation.

So what about renting a property? No pain no gain. If you don't have a mortgage, but still have renters insurance to pay, in addition to rent, not gains on equity building.

What about Building a new home? First is land acquisition that will help securing a mortgage. Then the process of figuring out what one wants in a 30 year commitment to a mortgage company or bank. Financial resources have to be an intricate aspect of home buying which brings me back to the first thought - Renting. One has to be mindful of credit checks in order to obtaining a lease. Homeless? Not a good option.

Back to building a house is complex for most and an impossible task for others. Start with a plan - a custom plan - that will fit your needs and family for years to come. How does one begin ... with a designer who has no interest in building your home. Why? They own the plan whether you pay for it or not. Have a plan based on your choices and selections - NEVER AGREE TO ALLOWANCES! NEVER! You will lose in the end, and you will go over budget faster than a race horse in the Kentucky Derby. Have your designer provide you with a check-list of every item to be purchased for your new home. Then you know how much it will cost you in the end. Contact me for more suggestions about planning and building your dream home or affordable house. T

This floor plan layout was one of two of my best selling homes. This one had a FROG. This same plan was built twice in Talamore Golf Club in Southern Pines. Millie and Dr. Niehause bought this one before it was completed. I will reinvent this plan once more with many of the arrangements found in the 12 or so floor plans I've designed for myself and other builders.
