OUR MISSION

Our mission is to be the definitive resource for residential plan design in North America and many other parts of the globe. We will attain this goal by continually striving for excellence in house, cabin, cottage, multi-unit, and renovation plans that are innovative and technically complete.

Success will be achieved with our presence throughout 22 cities, our growing network of distributors and thousands of home builders inside and outside of Canada and the United States.

Recognition of our imagination and expertise will be our milestone of success as we develop a unique reputation in the North American market for striving to meet customers' specific needs by taking the time to listen and providing answers to questions about existing and custom designs.

Drummond's primary goal is to offer consumers top quality home plans that meet and even exceed most of the world's building code requirements. So unlike many other American and Canadian designers, all of our plans are regularly updated to respect the Building Codes such as IRC (USA) and NBC (Canada). We can even provide BCIN numbers for our Ontario, Canada- based customers to comply with the province's building codes.

The Drummond House Plans ideology has always been "A picture is worth a thousand words". From the beginning, we have been among the first to promote our entire house plan collection using detailed homes and floor plans, realistic color illustrations and also featuring pictures of many completed homes and cottages in our house plan photo gallery to help consumers visualize the details of each house to have a better idea of the actual dimensions and proportions.

Each plan detail is examined meticulously, whether it is the climate/environment relative to the building site, the staircase's conformity to codes, adequate window space and other design aspects such as kitchen functionality. All house floor plans, construction reference drawings, engineering and architectural designs, are submitted to a rigorous inspection schedule which is updated regularly. This schedule is based on the collaborative experience of our large network of design professionals.

In addition, each house design undergoes an analysis of interior space utilization, to maximize every square foot of each room. Each analysis includes the study of: traffic areas, location of doors/windows relative to the natural light and furniture layout, to specify just a few parameters. We take special care to show our house models in realistic settings, each with its own decoration (or variations of decoration) so the consumer can better visualize their future home.
