Just Getting Started?
A great place to get started is to download a Free copy of the UDA Home Planning Guide which can assist you in the selection and design of your new home and includes 22 pages of innovative ideas and useful worksheets. It is equally useful for selecting from a library of existing plans as well as guiding you in the design of a custom home. You will be asked to define priorities, establish needs and explore adjacencies, all of which combine to form a foundation of guidelines to plan your next home. 

For a cost-effective approach to designing and preparing construction documents for a Quality Custom Home consider UDA Plan Partnerships. These Partnerships offer Architectural Services at discounted rates for homes we feel would appeal to other buyers.
