Meet the Designer - Frank McGahon

“What we're trying to do is help clients make their dream homes a reality. People look at beautiful houses in magazines and on websites and imagine that they're out of reach. We strongly believe that that's not the case. Even on tighter budgets there are a lot more possibilities than people often realize and with the right design it is possible to achieve the house of your dreams.”

Frank McGahon is a fourth generation architect, following his great grandfather, grandfather and father into practicing architecture in the town of Dundalk, equidistant between Dublin and Belfast. After graduating from the School of Architecture, University College Dublin in 1989 he worked in London and Dublin before returning to work for his father in Dundalk in 1992, eventually taking over the practice and establishing McGahon Architects in 2001.

While the practice has a tradition and reputation extending back a century it has a forward-looking ethos and a reputation for high quality house design with a particular emphasis on maximizing light and space throughout the house, using the configuration of the house to form private, sunny, sheltered spaces for outdoor living and always considering the variety of ways in which people inhabit and use the house. The practice's house designs range from small to large, from stepped sites to flat and from tight urban lots to expansive rural sites holdings incorporating regional influences with crisp contemporary detailing.

Important Information

All sales on house plans and customization/modifications are final. No refunds or exchanges can be given once your order has started the fulfillment process.

All house plans from Houseplans are designed to conform to the local codes when and where the original house was constructed.

In addition to the house plans you order, you may also need a site plan that shows where the house is going to be located on the property. You might also need beams sized to accommodate roof loads specific to your region. Your home builder can usually help you with this. You may also need a septic design unless your lot is served by a sanitary sewer system. Many areas now have area-specific energy codes that also have to be followed. This normally involves filling out a simple form providing documentation that your house plans are in compliance.

To find out what documents you should expect with your house plans, see what's included?

In some regions, there is a second step you will need to take to insure your house plans are in compliance with local codes. Some areas of North America have very strict engineering requirements. Examples of this would be, but not limited to, earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Coast, hurricane risk areas of the Florida, Gulf & Carolina Coasts. New York, New Jersey, Nevada, and parts of Illinois require review by a local professional as well. If you are building in these areas, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your building department. If you aren’t sure, building departments typically have a handout they will give you listing all of the items they require to submit for and obtain a building permit.

Additionally, stock plans do not have a professional stamp attached. If your building department requires one, they will only accept a stamp from a professional licensed in the state where you plan to build. In this case, you will need to take your house plans to a local engineer or architect for review and stamping. In addition, plans which are used to construct homes in Nevada are required to be drawn by a licensed Nevada architect.
