We have created a very detailed page listing of what you should expect with your order. Please click here or see the titles of provided files for the FRAMECAD machine as below:
Each country may have its own set of codes and regulations that have been determined to work best for the area. Our plans are designed to meet the Indian national building code standards but plans are not generally updated for any specific region. Many areas require additional steps once you have purchased your plans, including site plans, structural engineering, MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) plans, energy code compliance, and local code updates, so be sure to budget for what is needed in your location. You should consult with your local building official before starting your project. You can also call us to check on any specific plan codes.
Like realtors and appraisers, we calculate the living area of the “conditioned spaces” only, meaning the areas of the home that are heated. Some areas that are not included in our LA calculation include porches, patios, sunrooms, screened porches, bonus rooms, garages, and foundations.
This is the most common question we receive and the answer is yes! You can work with our skilled team of structure designers to customize any plan. Rates vary depending on the size of the structure and complexity of changes, but even if you decide to make a whole bunch of changes to the plan, it’s still much cheaper than hiring a designer to start from scratch!
You can request an estimate for plan modifications through modify button available on each plan page.
Plan modification pricing varies depending on the size of your house and the complexity of the design. Most minor modifications can be done by simply adjusting the existing structure without extra charge by Houseable. However, other modifications require a more comprehensive redesign of the structure.
You can request an estimate for plan modifications through modify button available on each plan page, write down needed modifications, and attach the file, even a simple drawing on paper, for better consideration (if available).
After confirming the modification costs, we will be back in a few hours to a maximum of two business days depending on the modifications’ size.
We recommend ordering the modifiable CAD plans if you are looking to have an Imperial measurements (feet and inches) conversion done, so you can work with a local professional on the changes. Most plans are designed using Metric measurements.
If the modification process doesn’t start yet, it can be changed without extra charge. Otherwise, the customization could be considered as a new project with its charges.
We aim to make your experience with Imagine Kit Homes as easy as possible, with only a few steps you’ll be soon constructing your dream home. Select your design, make changes to the plan or completely start fresh, get a final quote, get local approval, materials will be supplied.
Our steel frames are manufactured to meet strict Indian standards or regional-specific standards. Modern steel framing uses high tensile steel components and jointing methods and are specifically designed to pass strict performance tests.
Our steel frames feature a ‘cold cutting’ coating. This allows the product to ‘self-heal’ whereby the zinc in the surrounding coating will react with moisture in the air resulting in galvanic protection of the newly exposed edge.
At Houseable, our aim is to get the house to your site as cheaply as possible with no additional margins added. We encourage our customers to seek the best price possible and if you are able to beat our prices we are more than comfortable using your transport option.
Shipping can be performed all at once in a shipping container or as each stage is completed at the client’s discretion.
Our homes can be engineered to suit any location including cyclonic locations for an additional price. Our cyclonic rated plans are rated to suit cyclonic C2 wind loading, however, we can upgrade our structures to wind speeds of 309 KMs per hour.
All of our designs can be altered to suit your requirements. We design, engineer and provide materials to suit the region where the house will be built.
Have plans you love, but haven’t found the right builder yet? That’s fine, at Houseable Homes we can help you construct your dream home. We will work out how to create your dream home using our steel kits, custom-designed to your plan.

No, the plans dint include foundation designs as these are regional;l dependent based on seismic data. However, once the exact location is known, the same will be provided within the package.
Yes, absolutely! We will give you a price of the bare shell structure and then one with the additive specifications. Once finalized, the same can be added to the package.
