Our specialty is supporting Home Builders.
Our plans are designed to meet the high
wind requirements specific to any area. We work closely with
our consultant Engineers and Architects as needed to keep
our homes within code, but cost effective.
All plans can be modified quickly to meet
the builder's needs. We specialize in adjusting the way we
work to meet the building operation and needs of construction
Seventy percent of our plans are reviewed
face to face with the client or builder. We are always available
to meet with you as needed. When you are ready to move into
the high tech review process, Showcase can make it happen.
Showcase has been using online meeting and review for over
8 years. The internet has created a lot of good relationships
with our out-of-state clients and we expect it's use to grow.
Showcase Designs plans can be viewed
and mark up using a DWF viewer. You can download the viewer
from the link below. There are two of our plans online for
you to review and see how the viewer works. We can also setup
online meetings at your convenience. We can have an online
meeting with up to 10 people at different locations; all viewing
the same plan.
We recommend you download a DWF viewer
to get a better feel of just what you can do.
After installing the viewer,
click on one of links below. Each file has multiple pages
and allows zooming, panning, markups and printing to any printer
and page size. The menu bar allows you to view all pages of
a plan in a single file. Making notes on the plan is easy
as well as marking areas of concern. Saving the file to your
computer will allow more menus and working offline.

Using our estimating system and quoting each job will save
money because of less waste. We order only the correct lengths
needed in the rafter system and show the framer where to use
the lengths correctly.
Our takeoff is geared toward material control and not job
quoting. We keep the orders tight and expect reasonable backordering
of material. If you wish to use the quotes for budgets we
would add a percentage to our quotes to cover the waste shortage.
We order as tight as possible to control material waste.
If you do not want to work within our system, we will still
be glad to give you the request for quotes and material list
so you handle them directly with your suppliers.
If reorders are made through our office we try and see if
the model needs to be updated always looking for ways to be
more accurate. We have been able more than once to verify
that materials were either not delivered or moved from the
job site. This helps the builder be aware of problems on the
