Build Draft Tech

Whether it is your first time building a house or if you are an experienced builders , BDT WILL HAVE THE RIGHT PLAN FOR YOU!

Our aim is to make quality home design affordable by using the power of the Web to showcase and deliver our world class plans. What was once a complex process of designing a home from the ground up is now a streamlined, easy to use method of just searching our database for the plan that will fit your requirements.

It's the smart alternative to contacting an architect (paying thousands) and designing a house from scratch.
Thus saving you TIME AND MONEY...

An original custom home plan can cost 15% or more of the construction budget, but we can save you thousands because the cost of each stock home plan is amortized over many sales, and house plan customization is simplified. We offer a complete one stop resource for your home building project requirements.

We produce all the detailed drawings, architectural plans and re-enforcement drawings for any private/ commercial development or renovation.

We currently operate from our local offices in Bulawayo

When you order a plan from us you will receive a complete drawing (.pdf) of the plan. You will need to download the adobe reader to view your plan. The plan is drawn by a registered draughtsman so you can be assured of the highest quality.

The drawing will contain the plan lay-out, elevations, sections and other detailed drawings as required by the Local Authority of the main structure/ building.

Pre Drawn Plans
Most people buy already built houses but a very few have the privilege to build their dream house from scratch. Our Pre-drawn plans section will give you the opportunity to choose the right plan for your dream home.

Plan Amendments
Many people like to remodel their homes by adding another storey, bathroom, or a patio to their existing home. Any remodeling will require well thought through house plans and we can assist you in the drawing up of these plans up to Council standard.

Making these changes is not only a financial investment but rather an emotional investment that will bring life long memories and happiness to your family. Thus makes it sense to get the right professional for the job.

Site Plans
Buying a plan or making amendments to your home means that your plans will have to be approved by your Local Authority. In order for these plans to be approved is a site plan needed. A site plan is the outlay of what the land looks like. We can assist you in drawing this outlay for a minimal cost.

3D Visuals
As an optional extra can we supply you with a 3D visual of your plan. We understand the challenges presented when creating your house plans. By extending and propagating your house plans to 3D visuals, you can prevent huge mishaps where your imagination went for a leap and practicality out the door. Once your house plans realized and the house is standing, it will be much more expensive to move that front door 3 meters left or make your hall way 30 cm wider… I can assure you, it is worth it to make sure your house plans are exactly what you want as well as practical before the contractors even start laying the first brick.

To view your house plan in a 3D format could also spark up some new ideas, really getting the creative juices flowing. None of us can really visualize in our minds eye what the house will look like by simply looking at the house plans. Allow us to create photo realistic visuals and thus giving you the opportunity to take a walk through your dream house and making amendments while you still can.

Plan Submissions to Local Authority
Once your plans are drawn up, you'll need to get it approved at your Local Authority. BDT House Plans can assist you in this process of getting it approved.
