The Architectural plan sets includes all drawings generated by the architect which graphically convey all necessary aspects and details of a building’s architectural design. These drawings will provide the array of professionals (Engineers of all fields, General contractor and Sub-contractors) working in the development and construction of the building project with a graphical, highly detailed documentation depicting all the necessary information of the architectural design for the successful deliverance of said project.
Bare Minimum Drawings/Documentation included
All projects published for sale at homboo.com are required to include the following minimum set of architectural drawings:
Construction Floor Plans: Floor plans of every level containing all necessary dimensions, details, notes, labels, and information clearly annotated and represented.
A floor plan is a 2D scaled projection of the building, as viewed from above, being horizontally sliced through at a specified level and floor height. It conveys relationships between walls placements, rooms, spaces, door placements and other spatial features and details of the specific level of the building needed for construction. Construction Floor Plans must contain all necessary details, dimensions, notes, labels, and information clearly annotated and represented.
Construction Sections: Sections through all necessary or pertinent moments in the design containing all necessary details, dimensions, notes, labels, and information clearly annotated and represented.
A Section is a scaled 2D projection of the building, as viewed from a specific side (conventionally parallel to a specific face/façade) of the building, being vertically sliced through at key moments of the architecture. It conveys relationships between level heights, spaces, stairs and other spatial features otherwise difficult to represent. Construction Sections must contain all necessary details, dimensions, notes, labels, and information clearly annotated and represented.
Construction Exterior Elevations: Elevations off all facades of the house containing all necessary details, dimensions, notes, labels, and information clearly annotated and represented.
An elevation is a 2D scaled projection of the building, as viewed from a specific side (conventionally parallel to face/façade of the building) without being sliced through, showing the buildings envelope (exterior Facades) conveying relationships between level heights, window heights and sizes, building envelope materiality and other important architectural features. Construction Elevations must contain all necessary details, dimensions, notes, labels, and information clearly annotated and represented.
Construction/Assembly Details: Construction Details of all key moments of the architecture needed for the successful construction of the house, containing all necessary dimensions, notes, labels, and information required clearly annotated and represented.
A Construction Detail is a scaled drawing showing the assembly and junction of elements in key moments of the architecture. These drawings are purposely drawn at a larger scale as to clearly demonstrate the correct assembly of all elements at a particular point. Constructions details are represented using Sections, plans, and rarely as elevations. Construction Details must contain all necessary details, dimensions, notes, labels, and information clearly annotated and represented.
Additional complimentary Documentation:
The above shown list of documents is the minimum set of drawings required to build a house, considering all necessary details dimensions, notes, labels, and information are all clearly indicated in the drawings.
However, there is a wide array of additional complimentary documentation the architect can provide as a part of the architectural drawings set to add on an additional layer of information to make for a more complete and detailed project; creating a better framework for engineers, contractors, and subs, to work on the development and construction of the project with the least amount of improvisation.
For this reason, homboo.com encourages architects to provide the most amount of detail and documentation possible for the projects uploaded for sale
Some of the additional architectural drawings include:
Reflected Ceiling Plans: A reflected ceiling plan is a type of plan used to convey the ceiling design of each particular level. Ceilings are represented as a reflection in the floor of each level. Ceilings are graphically represented and annotated to show heights materials as well as electrical and mechanical embeded elements such as
Structural Floor Plans: Not to be confused with Structural engineering design drawings set. These are a set of Plans showing the architect’s general design intent of the buildings floor slabs’ structures. These drawings work as a framework/reference for engineers to develop a functional structure based on it. These are meant to show beams and rafters arrangement in each of the levels, and a general foundation design for the ground floor. House structures may vary in each design
Structural Sections: Not to be confused with Structural engineering design drawings. These are a set of sections generated by the architect to represent the general structural design intent and work as a general framework for the engineer to design a sensible and functional structure for the proposed architecture building.
Finish Floor plans: Plans showing materials and finishes of all elements in that specific view.
Finish Reflected Ceiling Plans: Reflected Ceiling Plans showing materials and finishes of all elements in that specific view.
Electrical Floor plans: Not to be confused with electrical engineering design drawings. Electrical floor plans in the architectural drawings set show placement of electrical outlets and how they are grouped together into a specific electrical panel, to work as a framework for the electrical engineer to develop as sensible design based off of this general design intent
Electrical Reflected Ceiling Plans: Not to be confused with electrical engineering design drawings. Electrical Reflected ceiling plans show electrical switches and lighting elements and how they are connected with each other and back to electrical panel. These provide a general framework for the electrical engineers to develop a sensible and functional electrical system regarding the architectural design and the architect’s intent.
Interior Elevations: Interior Elevations are elevations of interior walls used to convey particular features in an interior wall. Interior elevations are fundamental in interior design and are conventionally used to convey kitchen design, bathroom design, closet design, any special carpentry or tiling in a wall, which requires a specific design.
B.O.M. (Bill of materials): A bill of materials is a broken-down list of all materials and elements quantities and specs in the entire project. This list is essential in generating a Cost-to-build estimate. This list may be developed by the architect or by the contractor bidding for the project.
Engineering Drawings’ sets
Engineering Drawings sets are drawings sets that developed by engineers of different fields to take the architectural design proposed and generated by the architect to a constructability level. Each of the engineering projects uploaded are required to be uploaded in their entirety
Structural engineering drawings set: Is the set of Drawings and details developed by the structural engineer to create a sensible and functional structure to sustain de building following the architectural framework stipulated by the architect in the architectural design project. Plans sections elevations and detail drawings are used to convey every aspect of the structural design.
Civil engineering: Is the set of Drawings and details developed by the civil engineer to create a sensible and functional plumbing and drainage system for the building following the architectural framework stipulated by the architect. Plans sections elevations and detail drawings are used to convey every aspect of the structural design.
Electrical Engineering: Is the set of Drawings and details developed by the electrical engineer to create a sensible and functional plumbing and drainage system for the building following the architectural framework stipulated by the architect. Plans sections elevations and detail drawings are used to convey every aspect of the structural design.
Mechanical engineering: Is the set of Drawings and details developed by the mechanical engineer to create a sensible and functional HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system for the building, following the architectural framework stipulated by the architect. Plans sections elevations and detail drawings are used to convey every aspect of the structural design.
All projects in Homboo are designed to conform to the local codes when and where the original house was constructed. In most of the cases, the project’s building codes may not be in compliance with those of your specific region as these codes vary widely from region to region, adapting to regional specific factors ensuring safety during construction and for occupants during building’s lifespan in every aspect. If this is the case, after purchasing a home design at homboo, it is imperative to insure the architectural and engineering design projects are in absolute compliance with your local architectural, engineering and building codes respectively, in order legally construct it. It is most likely you will need to hire state licensed architect and engineers (from respective fields) to revise and analyze the original design projects respectively and adapt them to comply with your specific local codes. If you are not sure of how to assess this matter, your General Contractor will guide you through the process. If you are building the project yourself, county building departments typically have a handout listing all of the items, guidelines and building codes they require to obtain a building permit. However, even if you are building the home yourself, it is recommendable to hire and assess local state licensed architects and engineers to adapt the project to comply.
CAD (Computer Aided Design) format is always the most recommended as it gives the purchaser the ability to easily modify all aspects of the project as desired. This is optimal under any circumstance. However, it is not always necessary.
Portable Document Format enables you to print the project as many times as needed. However, it greatly dificults editing and modifying the project. For this reason, this format is only allowed for homboo costumized projects.
This licencing option legally enables the purchaser as per agreed contract to utilize the set of documents and drawings to build an unlimited number of houses. This licensing option is best suited for professional homebuilders as they typically reuse architectural designs to build more than once houses.
One time use
This licencing option legally enables the purchaser as per agreed contract to utilize the set of documents and drawings to build only one house. This licensing option is best suited for non-professional homebuilders as they do not typically reuse architectural designs.
Dimentions of the house footprint and total area of the house are crucial in understanding the design and if it fits your specific conditions. Width and length of the house will tell you if a particular design fits in your lot if you already have one, or purchase one that adjusts to design you want to purchase. Total area of the project is also a key spec a buyer should look at when buying a house as it tells if the house has the right space for your specific needs.
This section features every type of room and of quantities the project contains. It is an important specification to review before purchasing to understand how the house adapts to your needs. Number of bedrooms and bathrooms are the main features to focus on. However looking at all the list helps you understand the design a little better.
this section shows the intended finishing materials that the house should use as per the architects original design. However, it is important to understand that these materials could be changed-modified according to your personal taste. This is usually a simple process to undertake along with your contractor, material provider or by yourself. Hence, for this reason Homboo does not offer this particular additional service.

Architects at Homboo are required to upload projects with both an architecture Drawing Set and a Structural Drawing Set. The structural design of this house, for these purposes, is divided into two main components: Main structure and foundation. These two main components are the ones originally designed by the architect for the project.
However, any of these two components of the structure might have to be adjusted or changed to adapt to your specific site and location. For example your site might have a considerable sloping topography and the original foundation designed for the project is a slab foundation. You will need to modify the foundation of the house to mitigate that change in topography creating a crawlspace, a basement or a pile and pier foundation. You might also need beams sized to accommodate roof loads specific to your region. With Homboo Additional services for projects, we provide this modification and adaptation services specific to your project requirments.
Annotation Language, Annotation units, and local building codes under which the house is originally designed. These characteristics of the project will have to be adapted by a local architect - Proffessional drafter or contractor on the prospective site location . This proffesional will be acquainted and know how to adapt these properties to the construction location.
Specifies the Language in which the Project was originally annotated. Architects from all over the world are able to upload their Home designs into Homboo for people around the world to buy and build. You might want to purchase a house from a Swedish or Spanish architect but the project might be annotated in Swedish or Spanish.
Specifies the units in which the architect originally annotated the project. Projects may be annotated using either the metric system (mts) or the Imperial system (ft). Almost every country around the world utilizes the metric system. Only the United States of America, Liberia, and Myanmar are the exception to this convention and still use the Imperial system. Homboo’s additional services adapts the project you want to purchase to be annotated with the unit system your construction location requires.
Each Country, State, City, and or County usually enacts laws regarding construction and occupancy of buildings, for the control of urban and suburban growth, as well as the protection, public health, safety and general welfare of the population and the people that inhabit the buildings that to be constructed.
Projects are uploaded to Homboo by architects from all over the world and thus, each project is designed under different construction and building codes, corresponding to the original location of the project. It is important to understand that when purchasing the base package, it may well be the case that these local and building codes will have to be modified and adapted to meet the construction location building codes. Homboo’s additional services adapts the project you want to purchase to your specific local codes and standards.
