Better Building Plans
by Virginia Decking & Remodeling LLC

If you surf the web long enough, you will find just about anything. True? Deck, porch, gazebo and sun room Building Plans are no different. Look long enough and you will find someone else claiming their building plans are better because they are cheaper. But there is a problem.

I believe that some folks have been "taken in" by some Building Plan sites that offer building plans for less than we do here. Our clients consistently tell us that our plans are wonderful. Why?

  • I'm not a Johnny-Come-Lately. I have over 23 years of outdoor structure design experience coupled with a Virginia Class A Builder's License. (These don't grow on trees.)
  • I've been doing this longer than anyone else on the web (now that is a bold statement... but it is true).
  • I'm not a dummy (although I know a couple of folks who would argue the point). I attended the University of Virginia School of Engineering (1 1/2 yrs) and graduated from Mary Washington College with honors, double majoring in math and physics.
  • I offer a "no questions asked" Money Back Guarantee on all Standard Plans. And I don't get many folks who send them back. Why? The plans are more than worth the money we charge... both Standard Plans and Custom Plans.
  • Most importantly... these plans are detailed, comprehensive, and thorough. Note I did not say they were perfect... but they are very, very good.
  • Our Standard Building Plans and Custom Building Plans (for DIYer) come with our 27 page "Deck, Porch, Gazebo Planning and Construction Guide" that includes many, many construction tips and essential information along with thirteen (13) Detail Drawings (such as the Footing to Post Detail). Just one of the hints in this booklet could save you a bunch of money, a lot of work, or your wife's cat when you kick it in frustration.
  • Too prove my bold statements above, I will let you view a complete five (5) page set of custom deck and porch Building Plans that I recently did for a lady in Fairfax County, Virginia. You won't be able to print them out (at least not so you can see the detail), but because they are in PDF file format you will be able to zoom in and see all the detail on your monitor. You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.


Let this put to rest the "little foxes" who cry "cheap plans". It is a rule in life that you don't get something for nothing... and you almost always get what you pay for.

Mike I went and got the permits today and the guy at the plan review section really liked your plans. He actually stated that he had not seen some of the stuff you added to the plans. He was very impressed and only made a couple of changes to the plans and he said that they are some of the best plans he has seen come through in a long time.

Just thought you would like to know.




Ray wrote us about his experience obtaining a Building Permit using our Building Plans for a screen porch and deck we are framing for him in Prince William County, VA. Click on the link to see our Preliminary Plan of his deck and screen porch.
