Better By Design LLC was founded in 2001, in New Albany, Indiana by Bob Linnert. Since that time Better By Design LLC has produced over 2000 house plans for over 140 builders and literally hundreds of homeowner clients.

Bob was working as a Designer for a company that designed and built roof and floor truss systems, I-joist floor systems and engineered beams. As part of his job he used numerous house plans every day. One thing that Bob noticed repeatedly was that most plans had conflicting or missing dimensions, load bearing points and walls did not stack from one floor to another. And often the roof planes were designed incorrectly meaning the actual home looked different than the plans. Realizing the need for quality, builder tested home plans, Better By Design LLC was born!

Bob now puts his knowledge of design and engineering concepts to work in drawing plans that take into account the flow of loads from the roof to the foundation. He takes care to make certain all Better By Design LLC plans are simple, easily understood, and complete. A good plan is to a home as a great musical score is to a symphony. The plan is used by the builder-conductor to lead the various subcontractor-musicians to produce a well orchestrated masterpiece. And that is why over 140 builders will tell you that Better By Design LLC plans are more accurate and reliable, higher quality plans than others they have used. That is why we serve the same builders time and time again.
