(Small) HOME OF YOUR OWN
Plan, Permit, Pay in 3D
This book gives an overview
of the production of a small house. It uses illustrations, 3D
models, drawings, short videos, hands-on tutorials, sample files,
and checklists to visually explain the design and construction
Plan as a Process
In the first chapter, a plan is shown to include a realistic budget,
a thorough search and evaluation of alternate sites, a list of
wants and needs as a prioritized program, and a preliminary 3D
model based on one of hundreds of stock floor plans linked on
the book’s CD.
Chapter 2: Permit Process
In this chapter, projections of the 3D model are presented for
initial code review and distributed for input from local contractors.
Suggestions, comments, and cost estimates are then mixed with
new ideas in a design development phase. The permit drawings then
progress gradually until they’re ready to submit to the
building department for review. Examples and checklists of each
sheet are included.
Chapter 3: Pay for the Process
In the last chapter, site preparation begins immediately
following a simple schedule of predefined tasks. The work necessary
to complete each task is illustrated and described as a milestone
on a timeline with a description of each milestone based on an
international construction industry standard. The result is a
well defined, logical sequence of work, with clear-cut cost control
checkpoints along a well-traveled path to a home of your own.
