What’s included
in the plan?

What you get when you buy a LifeStage Home Design

LifeStage Home Plans are designed to be ready to build as they are. You simply find the plan that fits your needs, purchase it online, and download your PDF of the plans. Your designs are then ready for a builder to turn into your dream home* (and if you have modifications, we can help with that too – learn about modifications).

Your LifeStage Home Plan will include all the information and details a builder* would need to take the project from beginning to completion. All of our plans include:

  • Floor Plans:  The floor plan sheets show the layout of the house, which includes wall sizes, room dimensions, ceiling heights, window and door sizes and locations, fireplace location, kitchen cabinets, built-in shelves, desks, vanities and other design features.
  • Exterior Elevations:  Front, rear, right and left side elevations show the finishes for the building materials, such as siding, brick, stone, etc. This sheet also shows the type of roofing materials and decorative elements such as trim, columns and window shutters. Roof pitches and ceiling heights are also shown on the elevation sheet.
  • Foundation Plan:  This sheet shows the foundation wall location, footings, elevator shaft, etc. Please note: structural components will need to be sized and verified by a local engineer in your area.
  • Roof Plan:  This sheet shows a top view of the roof design, noting pitches, slopes, ridges, valleys, etc.
  • Detail Sheet(s):  These pages show typical methods for construction and our in-house details that explain LifeStage features of the home. For example, we’ll provide framing details for Curbless Showers, Stepless Garage Entry, Elevators, etc.

*PLEASE NOTE: Since we market and sell our house plans to a national audience, you will need to have your purchased plans reviewed by a licensed engineer, in your local area, who is familiar with the building codes and standard building practices in the location you intend to build your home.

If you have any questions about what’s included in a home design, feel free to contact us for more information.

What to Do When Mom Moves Back In

Are you considering moving your parent or parents in with you? You’re not alone. There are plenty of reasons to want to have family together under one roof – but also plenty of reasons it can be challenging. A family that includes multiple generations needs a home that can handle a variety of ages and abilities – as well as the important needs for comfort, independence, and privacy.

"We found Mark at LifeStage to be the consummate professional: always willing to listen and help us to create our vision for the house. This has been a challenging project as we are creating a separate dedicated space for a family member with special needs and another space for an elderly parent. Mark has been with us every step of the way. He has been a joy to work with, talented, personable, willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done."
