Order Customized Plans

This is a service exclusively for our members, because often I need to refer to an article or project on our site as background data. The price is a minimum of $55.00 for small shed or furniture plans to as high as $120.00 for extensive shed, garage or reno plans. I may charge more for very extensive plans and instructions, but will give you a definite price before you tell me to go ahead. Sorry, I don't get into house plans at all.

A lot of times we want to build something but can't find the exact plans we need for what we've envisioned. I can prepare customized plans for our members and step-by-step directions to make it easy for you to construct the exact thing you need.

Just describe for me, in as much detail as you can, what you want to build. If you already have exact measurements, all the better. Otherwise, just give me the size of the space you'd like your creation to fit. Feel free to give as much detailed description as you like. The better I can understand what you want, the easier I can draw up exactly what you need.

I'll send you an e-mail of any questions I have, then prepare the plans and instructions and send them to you. Plans include drawings and detailed instructions, as well as one-on-one email support from me as you build.

Custom plans remain the copyright of DaveOsborne.com and we reserve the right to place these plans on our website at any time. This is why I'm able to offer my services at such a low price. The recipient needs to be a member of our site so I can reference information from our site to you via email in the form of hyperlinks.

Custom plans are paid for when you receive them and are satisfied with them. You can pay for this service through our website using Visa or MasterCard or you can pay for it from your PayPal account. A personal check (cheque) mailed to me is also fine.

Your source for building tips, woodworking & furniture plans, house plans and building advice directly from Dave...

Hi, I'm Dave Osborne. With over 50 years experience as a journeyman carpenter, foreman and contractor in heavy construction I enjoyed working with apprentices and sharing the tricks of the trade that others shared with me. Now I get emails from Members all over the world and we include many of my answers in our Free Monthly Newsletters. Some of my answers include drawings and instructions specific to a project, but may also answer your questions. I use correct construction terminology, so you can confidently inform your building supply dealers or contractors exactly what you need.
