The House Designers (THD), an online house plan provider for consumers and builders, celebrates its ten year anniversary this month. Since its founding in May of 2001, THD has delivered a comprehensive collection of residential blueprints including the first ENERGY STAR® approved house plan collection endorsed by the EPA.
“The inception of THD was really remarkable considering that 10 leading and competing U.S. residential designers and architects came together under one roof to market the highest quality of home plans available online,” said Tammy Crosby, COO and owner. “It would be like Neiman Marcus®, Bloomingdales®, Nordstrom’s® and Saks® joining forces to sell products. Everyone in our industry noticed.”
First, THD aggregated a collection of quality home plans unlike any other online home plan provider at that time. This collection included the best designs from the country’s leading designers – a fine-tuned collection of best-selling house plans, time tested and builder friendly mixed with innovative, new house plans from these accomplished designers.
Next, THD worked with savvy web developers to build a website that was not only user friendly and engaging, but offered consumers lots of helpful information to build their new homes while searching for their dream house plan.
After gaining top Google search results with Page 1 positioning for over 600 industry keywords, providing an unmatched customer service experience and delivering house plans that meet and exceed consumers and builders’ expectations, a solid foundation was set in a competitive, e-commerce environment.
“Over the last 10 years, THD has remained strong and even produced its best online sales on record in 2010 despite a global recession with the housing industry being the hardest hit,” comments Tammy Crosby. “I attribute our success to three things: First, having the best quality house plans available online in an engaging, easy to use website. Second, a group of owners who are architects and designers passionate about architecture and not just third party distributors. And third, a customer service team that goes above and beyond for each and every customer.”
THD has won industry recognition as the preeminent, pre-drawn house plan provider and has been chosen by Better Homes & Gardens®, The Old Farmers Almanac® and Yankee Publishing® as their exclusive home plan provider.
