Custom Plans / Drafting Fees

If you didn't find what you were looking for in our pre-engineered plans, California Pre-Cut Homes (CPH) can help you go from dream to completion of your own custom design. We can take your ideas from a sketch that will then be turned into a completed engineered plan. We can help you with designing a new home, secondary home, cabin, addition to your home, detached garage or workshop, pool house, barn, and some multiple dwellings.

We are a drafting company that offers a design service with a structural engineer who will complement our service. Calif. Pre-Cut Homes is not a licensed architect. We do about 10 to 40 drafting jobs a year. The majority of the work produced by Calif. Pre-Cut Homes is custom design floor plans and packages. When we say “custom” we do not mean high-end. We mean custom to the owner’s wants and needs. We will be more than happy to work in developing a truly custom and affordable plan. If you already have a completed set of plans, we would be able to work from those as well.
