Electrical diagrams on House Plans?

One of the most frequent inquiries we get in our sales of house plans is ‘do the plans include electrical’. The answer to that is yes, almost always. Yes because most designers include location of lights, plugs and switches according to codes in effect at the time the plan was drawn. We qualify this with ‘almost always’ because we have some designers who design for up-scale builders and their contractors don’t want the standard electrical stuff on the plans.

In this day and age, most people want to plan where they want switches, outlets, ceiling fans, specialty lighting, etc. Electricians prefer to locate outlets and switches after consulting with their customer and don’t want to have to scratch off the generic stuff. Electrical panels are conveniently located near where the service comes to the house.

If you live in a home built prior to 1990, have you ever said to yourself “I wonder why this builder didn’t allow for extra outlets here in the kitchen”. Or, if you have limited mobility, wonder why the switches and plugs aren’t placed more conveniently on the walls. Or, decided to put in a ceiling fan and had to go through the hassle of pulling electric to the ceiling? The reason for this is because tract homes allowed for only what was required by code at the time the home plans were created.
