Free Building Plans and Projects

I’m always looking for free plans on how to build things and inspiration for projects. Here are some 100% free sites for building plans and projects.

North Dakota State University Agricultural Department

These building and facility plans were developed over many years by engineers at Land Grant Universities. They provide conceptual information that is excellent for planning purposes.

A lot of the plans are mid 1900. This is great if you are looking for inspiration from the past. I was thinking of printing some of the really old plans out and using them as art.

Some cool plans I ran across in the Miscellaneous section are

LSU Biological and Agricultural Center

The University of Tennessee Extension

It maintains a collection of over 300 building and equipment plans, and all are now available in electronic format for download.
