Creating base house plan with options


Recommended Posts

Do any of you have experience creating a house plan for production, with options that future clients can choose from?  One builder I am drawing for wants me to use a simple house plan as a base and have options like cantilevered bump-out at the dining room, etc, that clients can choose to customize their home.  I am trying to figure out how you'd do that in Chief... Anyone have ideas?  They'd be much appreciated!

I'm wondering if anyone has experience creating different options with the same plan file... maybe I have to have separate plan files I send to the same layout file?

I complete the base plan, get it right and get the con docs finished. Then SAVE AS_Elev B and make those changes. Then go back to the base and SAVE AS_Dining Cantilever and get that done, etc...

 

Keep them all in the same file and use one layout file, all in the same folder.
