About Home Plan Central

Home Plan Central was incorporated in 2002 as a full service design firm in North Idaho. Since then we have expanded to offer high quality pre-designed house plans to customers across the country.

William R. “Bill” Brown Jr. is the founder and President of Home Plan Central. Bill is the creative force behind our entire operation. He has been a custom home builder and designer since 1978 and an AutoCAD expert since 1988. During his 36 year career, Bill has built more than 100 homes and has designed more than 400 custom homes.

When you purchase a house plan from Home Plan Central you benefit from this combination of design and construction experience for the ultimate in aesthetics, constructability, and cost effectiveness.

Again and again, homeowners and builders alike have chosen to employ Bill’s design expertise, unparallelled understanding of real world construction, and his ability to depict both design and technical information in flawless house plan drawings. Here’s what Bill’s past clients are saying...

“Planning, designing and building your own home is a major undertaking. The initial part of this process was made substantially easier with Bill’s help. Upon our contractor’s recommendation, we met with Bill for a consultation. We found him pleasant, understanding of our ideas, and ready to go to work. Through the design process, Bill was easy to communicate with and responsive. Time lines were consistently met and we were able to see our plans evolve. Our overall experience with Bill was a very good one exceeding all of our expectations. He took our ideas and our ‘dream’ and put on paper. We would most assuredly recommend Bill.”

--Brian and Cari Ticehurst, Hayden Lake, Idaho

Full Custom Home Design

Looking for a one of a kind home design that is perfectly tailored to your individual needs? While we have expanded into providing quality pre-designed house plans to customers through our website, we do still accept a limited number of custom house clients.

All of Bill’s custom home design projects include laser sharp 2D plans, elevations, details, plus incredible color 3D renderings and animations that virtually bring your new home to life before it’s built.

“We contacted, and later hired, Bill to draft our house plans initially from a telephone book listing. My wife and I had a generalized concept of the size and style of house that we wanted to build, and we had a general floor plan in mind. We needed professional help putting our thoughts on paper. Bill was very accommodating to meet with us (at his house, our house and at the proposed building site) as often as we believed necessary to discuss our thoughts about a house plan. Bill listened to our concerns and ideas, asked good clarifying questions, and did an exceptional job at converting our verbal descriptions and rough sketches into plans on paper. As might be expected, we went through numerous modifications, both large and small, as our vision took shape and, again, Bill was very understanding and accepting of our evolving thoughts. We have been extremely pleased with both the process and the result of working with Bill, and we would recommend Bill to others without hesitation or reservation. Bill's work product and turn-around time was excellent and his fees were quite reasonable. The various perspectives and renderings that Bill presented helped immensely to get a better idea of how the interior and exterior of the house would look from different angles and how the world appeared looking through the windows of our imaginary home. Those perspectives resulted in some changes in window and garage placement that we would not have been aware of until the house was being built or was completed. We are pleased that we could make those changes on paper rather than suffer the expense of on-the-ground modifications.”
