About Dan Tyree.
Dan Tyree is married with nine kids so far, and knows that your home creates the environment for your family life. He spends all of his time with his wife and kids, staying busy with homeschooling, cooking, leatherworking, and driving the dirt roads of Oklahoma. Dan believes in slowing down and enjoying a simple life, and designs his homes to encourage these things.
Dan has designed homes throughout the world. He designs homes with simplicity, clean lines, obvious function, and connection to the outdoors. You can view a map of his projects on the Clients page. Call or email to setup a meeting to discuss your project.
Home and Family are gifts from God.
"Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate." - Psalm 127
Frequest Questions and Answers.
What's your mailing address?
P O Box 1372
Owasso, OK 74055
What's included with the plans?Our plans are either printed or in digital format. Most of our plans fit on 36 x 24 paper to scale. We include the following pages:
floor plans with electrical notes
roof and floor framing layouts and/or boundaries
notes and details
We purchased PDF or CAD files. When will we get them?
Our delivery system for digital files is not automated. We like to send out files personally to each client. You will receive an email with the files attached, or with download links (for larger files).
What is ICF?
ICF stands for Insulated Concrete Forms. It is a foam block used to construct walls. Once the blocks are stacked in place, the interior of the blocks are poured solid with concrete. They are very energy efficient. We offer an ICF version of most of our plans.
Has anyone built these plans? Do you have pictures?
Yes. Most clients don't send us pictures, but some do. You can view pictures of built plans on each plan page (if available) or on our Flickr Photostream and Facebook Page.
Do the plans include material lists?
No. We recommend having a local material supplier or lumber yard generate a material list for you. You can also get a material list and framing plans from Lowes. Click here for more details..
Do you provide cost estimates? How much does it cost to build a plan?
We don't provide cost estimates. The price to build a home varies by state and country. We recommend that you show the plan to 3 or 4 builders where you are planning to build, and get thumbnail pricing from them. This will allow you to connect with builders, and move forward with your project easier.
Can we return our plans if we change our mind?
No. Because it is very easy to copy a set of plans before shipping them back, we cannot refund plan purchases after they have shipped, or after digital files (or download links) have been sent.
Do you have a military discount?
Although we wholeheartedly support the US military, we don't have a military discount. We strive to provide affordable plans for everyone.
Are you an architect?
No. In almost every state in the US, a person is not required to be a licensed architect to design homes. Dan Tyree operates under the Oklahoma Architecture Law Statute, Section 46.21b, C.
