Detailed Drawings Leave No Room for Doubt 

In this episode of Site Visit with NS Builders, I take Tyler Grace, owner of TRG Home Concepts, for a quick tour of our Rhode Island project and share why detailed drawings can make a world of difference.


I drew Tyler’s attention to the drawings tacked up all over the walls—for example, down in the basement, the 3D drawings showing all of our HVAC and ductwork in detail. There’s a huge benefit to having precise drawings—nothing is left to chance or doubt when the various trades and subcontractors come in to install. It’s pretty standard in commercial projects to have this level of detailed drawings—not always the case in residential where you might say, “This is where the air handler goes.” And then the installer has some latitude in laying out the connections. Contrast that with our drawings—everything has already been considered and designed, outlining exactly where it needs to go.  

Having these 3D drawings readily available should create greater efficiency and precision for the trades coming in to do their work. And these renderings can lead to much more accurate estimating and budgeting.  


This house is about 2,000 sq ft once the basement is finished. So, it’s crucial to think about every bit of available space and how best to use it. We have some mechanical being hidden under the staircase. And we’ve outlined exactly where mechanical and plumbing elements will go—even mapping out on the floor where the 65-gallon water heater will sit. The 3D drawings allow us to visualize how everything will be placed and take up the least amount of space. When you plan accordingly, saved inches add up to feet of additional living space. Even a smaller home can feel big when done right. 

It’s time to discover what NS Builders can intentionally design and build for you! Contact us today to get started on your custom dream home. Together, we can make it happen.
