Which House Plan Package is Right For You?

House Plans by David Wiggins offers house plan packages to meet every need. If you want to find out the cost to build your new home or get estimates from local builders, we recommend the electronic PDF that allows you to conveniently email or print your plans. If you want to make minor changes to the drawings, we recommend a digital PDF construction plan. For major changes we recommend AutoCAD files. Take a look at the different house plan packages below to decide what plan package will work best for you, and if you still need help in deciding, consult with your builder or contact us and we’d be happy to help.

Choosing Your Foundation

Slab Foundation


The most common foundation requiring the least amount of lot prep and usually preferred for a level lot, a slab foundation is a single layer concrete poured directly on grade.  Slab foundations are generally the most cost effective foundation and the most energy efficient. 

Crawl Space Foundation


Preferred for both sloped and level lots, crawl space foundations are elevated from 16” to four feet off the ground and allow easy access to plumbing, heating and cooling systems and electrical wiring.  It is a good option for flood-prone and high moisture areas and often creates warmer floors.

Basement Foundation


Ideal for level lots, basement foundations offer extra living space on a partial or fully underground lower level.

Walkout Basement Foundation


Ideal for sloped lots, walkout basement foundations offer extra living space on a lower level with windows and/or exterior doors on one or more sides of the foundation that is exposed.

Optional Features

Right Reading Reverse


Right Reading Reverse plans are the complete reverse of the house plan shown on the plan page and includes readable text and dimensions. Note: The reverse option on the website is simply a visual to see the home shown in reverse. The final construction documents will include readable text and dimensions.

2 x 6 Exterior Walls


2 x 6 framing allows wider studs for thicker insulation for added energy efficiency.
