I am considering building my house using a home plan you can buy online. It looks easy. I choose the one i want from http://architecthouseplans.com and download it. Then i give it to a builder and they take care of the rest. Has anybody tried this? I am assuming I can save thousands of dollars by not hiring an architect to design the home. I do not see the benefit of hiring an architect if i can simply by a home plan and give it to a reputable builder. Any body who has been through this process I'd appreciate your advice and tips.
