Roys Homeplanning Services
Architectural Drafting Services

Roy at workRoy Buduan has been drafting on Kauai for over 45 years. He began his drafting career with Kauai Commercial Company. He then worked as Senior Draftsman for 18 years at Amfac. Roy is familiar with the building codes required for your permits. Most of the contractors on the island are familiar with his work.

When you come to see Roy, you should have a general idea of what you want in terms of design. After one or more meetings with Roy, he will have enough information to begin transforming your ideas into actual plans.

Your plans will begin with a Sketch. The sketch is a basic floor plan and one exterior elevation. You will be given the sketch to check over. You should check it carefully and mark any changes you want. Once you are ready to go forward, Roy will prepare your final plan based on his sketch and any changes you made to the sketch. If you make addtional changes, there will be additional charges. The minimum charge for making additional changes will be $100. The actual amount of the additional charge will be determined by amount of the changes.

When your invoice for the final plan is PAID IN FULL, you will be given a copy of you plans in PDF format. You can take the PDF file to S&S Business Machines (3088 Aukele St, Lihue, HI 96766, phone 808-245-9549) and they will make copies for you.. They will print out your final plan in 24"x36" size paper. You can call S&S Business Machines at 808-245-9549

After having your plan reviewed and stamped by an architect, you will need to again have copies made. This also can be done at S&S Business Machines.

Your next step will be taking your stamped copies over to the county building department in Lihue for permitting.
