How Much Do 3D House Plans Cost?

3D floor plan rendering

There are several options to get 3D house plans. You can either outsource the floor plan drawing to an architectural firm or create the floor plan in-house with floor plan software or CAD software.

The cost for the 3D house floor plan is:

  • Architectural design firm: $200 - $700 (and up) for each house plan
  • CAD software: $200 subscription on a monthly basis
  • Floor plan software: $79 subscription on a monthly basis

With architectural design firms, the cost varies significantly depending on the project’s complexity and size. It can go far higher than $700 per project if there are multiple revisions or if you need 3D renderings. In addition to the high cost, there is a time factor - the firm might require several weeks to deliver the plans.

CAD software is ideal to get construction blueprints and very detailed floor plans needed for building permits. There are additional costs to the subscription price as they require a powerful computer to run the software correctly and strong 3D design skills. So this option would only be possible if you have an in-house architect or civil engineer.

Floor plan software is designed for the conceptual design phase. It is the best solution to draw a floor plan quickly as it is easier to use and more affordable than CAD software. It allows the user to create photorealistic interior and exterior 3D renderings in addition to the 2D and 3D floor plans.
