Plan Development

One of the most important and difficult aspect of building a new home is being able to visualize your home’s full potential. We believe every single project is unique and takes on its own evolutionary process. This process begins with working drawings, which are reenforced with 3D renderings and virtual walkthroughs. Our packages are suitable for all budget types and can include site evaluations, plans, and specifications. These packages will allow you to see, feel, touch, hear, and smell the beauty of your new home before construction begins.

Conceptual Layout

Receive your preliminary layout in just 3-5 business days. Silas Lacey is dedicated to helping our customers achieve their desired square footage, price point, and architectural preference. A preliminary plan would incorporate all your wants and needs while tabulating your interior living, garage, patios, and total footage under roof. This information is critical when designing around a budget.


Once you’ve approved your conceptual layout, a front elevation is created. Because we are dedicated to helping you achieve the best price possible, we offer several exterior material options. Your custom elevation is generated to meet your desired architectural preference while maintaining budgetary awareness.

Check Set

A “not for construction” check set is generated once you’ve approved your front elevation. This set will consist of cabinet schedules, interior elevations, roof design, ceiling detail, electrical, site plan, exterior elevation angles, detailed measurements, and general plan notations. At this point your builder is able to provide you with final pricing. Generally, a builder will make slight adjustments to the plan or specifications in order to meet your budgetary goal. We highly encourage a full team collaboration throughout the entire design process to help minimize the amount of changes needed once plans are completed.

Final Plans

Congratulations, you’re ready for construction! Final plans are sent to all parties involved in the construction of your home. Your builder will submit plans to local permitting authorities, engineering, and architectural committee controls. The exterior and interior selection process can begin. Once you have chosen your exterior colors and materials, Silas Lacey is now offering a free life-like 4000 MP High Resolution exterior rendering at no charge. Now you’re able to see your home come to life and share your experience with your friends on social media.


If you’ve chosen a builder and have not started a design, have your builder create a budgetary guideline and specifications sheet for your new design. With this information in hand, we are able to precisely design your home at your pre- determined price-point.
