Architectural 2D & 3D Modelling Rendering by HomePlansIndia.com


At HomePlansIndia.com we have been developing house plans and designs for almost 4 years now. Over the years we have developed home floor plans and designs for quite a number of plot owners from all over India as well as abroad. We received overwhelming responses and feedback from our precious clients and visitors for developing better images for floor plans so as to make it much more easier and convenient for anybody to read and understand a house plan.

So with changing times we are embracing technology and transforming one dimensional house floor plans to 2D rendered images and 3D models. For modelling we develop the floor plans with sketchup and then render it to more of a photrealistc or an artistic image. Being architects our core intention revolves around the final result image which should not be very harsh with mix of colors and texture of different elements which are part of the layout, rather they should be rendered harmoniously to achieve a much better appealing image.

We are also developing few of these 3D models to further enhance there look and feel by creating hybrid rendered images with use of watercolors and pencil colors. All kinds of work are done in-house to achieve the best results for our clients. Our key features are:

* Huge team of trained staff to deliver results quicker.

* Our Architectural understanding and aesthetic knowledge imparts great speed in grasping fresh projects.

* The team works harder to try different and newer formats of presentation so now two projects have the same representational idea.

* Our team experiments with modern techniques and styles of presentation as possible with newer rendering platforms/software.

* Quicker delivery of work so as to respect our commitments to our clients.

* Great understanding of Supply chain management technique for large scale 2D & 3D rendering projects.

* Our charges are very competitive and also the best in the market.

Feel free to get in touch with us for any query and we will be glad to assist you with the same. You can mail us at homeplansind@gmail.com

5 Basic Design Flaws to watch out in a House - Home Plans India

House Plan Flaw 1. The most common design flaw that we can observe on any house is that of proper cross ventilation or of sufficient natural lighting inside the house.

Due to smaller plot sizes in India we do face this issue but by creating skylights and ventilators above window may help dramatically in dealing with them.


House Plan Flaw 2. Most commonly the primary focus is towards the living room as it is a very important feature of the house. Any guest or close family is usually met  here so the size of this room is usually big and with smaller plots the bedrooms become extremely smaller in size and shape so as that only a bed and a wardrobe can barely fit in.


This can also be easily dealt with by reducing the passage area and consuming the same for the bedrooms. Also we can reduce the size of the living room comparatively to make some more breathable space in the bedroom.


House Plan Flaw 3. The layout of the kitchen is very important as it needs to be fit in the fridge, cooking range, microwave and the dish washing sink. Along with them there needs to be sufficient space for the women of the house to work which is necessarily not the case. So our advise would be to redo the whole kitchen to make appropriate working space for a kitchen otherwise it leads to lot of frustration for the use on everyday basis.


House Plan Flaw 4.  Usually the layout of the house may be as per your needs but do not overlook the quality of construction of the house. Do keep in mind that every house needs lot of maintenance and repair work throughout its life span but a better quality construction may reduce that burden to a great extent for its lifetime.


House Plan Flaw 5. Water management or building services are also one of the key design elements which are usually overlooked and leads to poor quality of workmanship which directly effects the overall design, look, feel and maintenance of the house.


So do check all the plumbing connections if they are in proper shape, size & in correct location for proper functioning of the house services. If any water supply pipe is leaking / waste water pipe is leaking then that can create water seepage of the walls which can directly effect the wall plaster and paint. Eventually it leads to patchy wall with dampness which are good for growth of bacteria and fungi.

So our advice will be to consider assistance of professionals if you want to be sure of all the features of a house.

10 Reasonable Questions to ask a Prospective Contractor for building your house

1. Before finalizing and acquiring a contractor for building your house you need to create a list of eligible contractors that you are aware off through close friends and colleagues. Make sure the list includes minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 contractors

2. For each shortlisted contractor, do identify the following basic attributes
            a. Years of his and his teams experience
            b. educational qualification
            c. number of similar houses he has built in the past
            d. how many people work in his team
            e. how many references he can provide for who will vouch for his work

3. Do visit one or two house sites / projects completed by each shortlisted contractor. This may mean some good amount of time but it is worth the time and money you will be investing in your house.

4. Do evaluate each contractor’s rates along with professional architect or a civil engineer to make sure the rates abide by the current market trends.

5. Prepare a matrix or a comparative chart of all your queries regarding the background, skill set and reputability of the contractor. Value each on a scale of 0 to 5 where 0 means least impressive and 5 denotes the highest value.

6. Do ask each contractor to submit their work profile along with few pictures of the past work. Collect them in form of hard copies so that it’s convenient for you to compare it with other contractors.

7. It is always a good practice to ask the contractor for all the required licenses & insurances required for practicing as a contractor in India.

8. Choose a contractor who is helpful and has an attitude of systematic work. He should have a proven record of his work with past 3 projects or more.

9. Do not select or finalize on the contractor as per the lowest fee quoted. Use all the above mentioned pointers for making a more evolved and thoughtful decision for building your dream home.

10. Finally don’t take a decision in haste or under any pressure. Evaluate and decide upon the best contractor for your house building project. Be actively involved in every stage of construction and research enough to work along with the contractor.


In case of any crucial doubt about the construction technique / procedure then do consider taking help from a professional architect or civil engineer.

Small house needs less material to build which directly saves you from borrowing huge amounts of money from bank at the initial stages of construction.  Borrowed money for 20 / 30 yrs is an expensive investment as the interest on the principal amount is equal to the borrowed money when finally returned.
