This is America's first accessible and sustainable home plan book. Plans also include clean air specifications per your needs with optional smart technologies and optional storm/panic safe rooms. I often say, "the plans are a good place to start". We can also inter-mingle segments from various plans if you wish.
Your home will be most satisfying andsuccessful when it connects intimately with your specific site and in line with your lifestyle and personal desires.
Plans can be ordered and then modified per your specifications, site requirements and per your local and state building codes. I am glad to work with you to create your own custom home design and blueprints for construction. All of the plans in the book are recreated on a one by one indivudual basis as they are always modified to your site, as noted above.
The plan book is also helpful as a reference for bathroom and kitchen renovations and additions because the last 25 pages contain over 300 detailed design, planning tips and specifications. These are and will be of great value to you when building new or remodeling an existing home

The home pictured above is the interior of the images at the top of this page. It was designed by Mr. Schwab for a couple in Myrtle Beach. The homeowner had suffered a severe work injury resulting in fulltime use of a wheelchair. It was designed in a huricane prone area and one of the bathrooms doubled up as storm-saferoom.
Thank you for being one of five hundred and ninety five thousand people to visit this site.
We enjoy working with you to design remodels of all sizes.
