"Our goal is to produce high quality sustainable buildings of rigorous and exacting detail. We strive to create appropriate and timeless solutions."
The wf2studio Plan Collection was created by Paul Field, Assoc. AIA and Braxton Werner, AIA. Their inspiration includes such famous icons of modernism as Luis Barragan in his use of masonry, manipulation of light, and elegance of form; Carlo Scarpa in his cast-in-place concrete work; and the Case Study House Program in its handling of standardized elements. Paul and Braxton aim for an understated, straightforward, and eco-oriented architecture that suits its setting.

Paul is a graduate of Carleton University at Ottawa and has practiced architecture in Canada, then Texas, since 1997. He has extensive experience in residential design and construction having managed several award-winning residential projects in Texas including his own home which was published in Metropolitan Home and featured on HGTV.

Braxton Werner is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. He received his LEED Accreditation in 2000, and has been a licensed architect in the State of Texas since 2002. Braxton has extensive knowledge of green building and has practiced both architecture and construction management in Texas since 1997. In 2006 the two formed the design-build firm wernerfield and later created the wf2studio in an effort to provide modern, sustainable residential alternatives at an affordable price.

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.
