Build your new space in the outdoors

Discover how Den takes the headache out of new construction

How It Works

Whether you’re in the dreaming phase or the doing phase, Den has streamlined the build process to provide you with exactly what you need.

Each of our three packages are designed to answer every question you (and your builder) have along the way.

The Starter Package

Best for: determining your project's feasibility

There’s no better way to understand the project you’re about to build than by reviewing a set of plans, otherwise you’re just guessing based on photos. The Den Starter Package contains plenty of details to help you make the decision to move forward.

Sample details from our plans →

The Starter Package lets you →

  Interview builders and get higher quality estimates
  Share with your HOA to get basic approvals
  Figure out how much your project will cost in your area
  Review the design in detail to see if you really really like it
  See if the closets are big enough
  Talk with your building department about a permit
  Trade in your Starter Plan towards the Complete Package. Email us how!

The Custom Package

Best for: customizing with an engineer or architect before building

Know exactly which design you want to build, but need to make a few changes? With the Custom Package your engineer or architect will have everything they need to easily make changes that fit your lifestyle and local zoning codes. The 3D model brings the whole picture to life, including placing your furniture and appliances.

The Customization Package lets you →

  Customize your Den design (materials, window placement, walls, and overall footprint)
  Change the foundation type to better suit your site or preference
  Ensure local code compliance (seismic, Title 24, hurricane, or extreme snow loads)
  Get your plans stamped by an engineer or architect
  Translate the design for metric, Eurocode, and other non US markets
  Save time and money by not having to redraw all the details from scratch
  Explore your own interior design and furniture selections

The Complete Package

Best for: building a Den as beautiful as the ones on the website

We put a lot of love into the design of the Den structures, and just as much into what goes inside. With this package, we provide you with every last detail, down to the faucets and light switches. Your builder will love you, and you’ll love your new home.

The Complete Package lets you →

  Save time and money with a complete list of construction materials (materials take off)
  Review advanced details like mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems
  Take the guesswork out of which equipment and appliances to buy
  Achieve a Den-style result with specific furniture and fixture recommendations

A good place to start

We find our customers buy 1-2 starter packages before going "all in" on the design they want to build.

You’re on your way to building your Den!

Remember that local expert we mentioned above? At some point, you will have to engage a local engineer to review and potentially modify the plans before they stamp/approve them on the path to you getting your building permit. Finding an engineer to do this for you is as easy as searching for a "home or structural engineer near me" in Google.
