In 1990, home designer Rick McAlexander joined forces with artist Floyd Dinger to found Associated Designs Residential Design Services in Eugene, Oregon. Floyd has since passed on, but Rick continues as president, and with a design and support staff, the company continues to grow.
Associated Designs home plans are created by talented designers with more than 45 years of combined home design experience. Weekly columns featuring our plans are published in more than 800 newspapers around the country. Since the company was founded, we have sold more than 60,000 home plans.
Most of our pre-designed plans can be previewed from this website. To search and review plans, see Find a Plan. Over 550 of our best plans are also available in a convenient catalog. A low-cost Review Plan can be ordered for any design, and full blueprint Builder Packages are available in a variety of configurations. For more details, see Ordering Information. Any of our pre-designed plans can also be modified to suit your particular needs.
Custom designs, based on your specifications, are another of our specialties. For more information, see Custom Services.
Once a year, we publish a survey to get a sense of what Americans want in their home designs. Then we take the results and design special plans. Check out the latest Survey Results. You can also Fill Out Your Own Survey. Any of our plans can be ordered online from this web site, or by phone, fax, or mail.
