How the Modification Process Works
Step #1 - Find a house plan that you want modified. If you already have a plan then you are ready for step 2.
Plans can be found on numerous websites and magazines. See our favorites below.
Step#2 - Determine what modifications you want made to the plan. Develop your dream home with documentation that is clear and concise. Hand sketches or mark ups are worth a thousand words. If you haven't already purchased the plan, we prefer that you wait until you have spoken to us. The pre-drawn plan plus the modifications creates your new unique dream home plan.
Step #3 - Either call us at 913-856-7735, fax your request to 1-866-873-3963 or email your requested changes to firstname.lastname@example.org
Step #4 - We communicate
Step #5 - We provide you with a free verbal and written quote for your requested modified changes. We will restate your changes in the communications so that there is no misunderstanding.
Step #6 - If you proceed to place an order this is the next step:
In order for the modification work to begin, LynMar Designers must have one set of the plan, in one of the following formats; CAD, PDF or Reproducible Set. Call our office and our staff will handle this for you. The plan, purchased by you, will provide the copyright release in order for LynMar to modify the plans, make copies and you to build it.
What to Expect
Once the plan is received, the work is entered into our schedule. If the designer has any questions regarding your modified changes or suggested alternatives, LynMar will call you to clarify.
LynMar will send you a first draft which will include all your modified changes for your review, comment and approval.
If any modifications were incorrectly communicated or missed those can be corrected with Draft 2.
Draft 2 and 3 are for tweaking the plan. Draft 1 should have included all your request.
There can be as many as 3 drafts to basically get the modifications right and approved by you.
Once you have approved all the modifications per your original request, LynMar will proceed to finalize the plans and send the full set to you.
