Curtis Cadenhead has been in the home construction and home plan business for over 25 years. Throughout his teenage years he spent his summers working for the family masonry business where he received firsthand experience in the construction industry. During this time he developed a love for residential design and architecture.
Curtis attended Jefferson College and earned his Associates Degree of Applied Science in Architectural Drafting and Construction Technology in 1991. In 1993, he graduated from Central Missouri State University (presently known as University of Central Missouri) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Drafting Technology with an emphasis in architecture.
After graduation, Curtis quickly found a job with a home plan publishing company in St. Louis, MO where he worked his way up through the company to the position of Home Plans Manager. In his 13 years with this company, he handled a variety of tasks from material estimates, to home design and marketing house plans for over 100 residential designers and architects throughout the United States and Canada.
In 2006, the “entrepreneur bug” bit him, and Curtis set out on his own founding The HousePlanShop
, LLC. He began publishing stock house plans online for nationally and internationally recognized residential designers. The company was built on three important principals; excellent customer service, top-selling designers, and best-selling home plans. Curtis found this to be a winning combination for success. As the business grew, he expanded by adding The GaragePlanShop
, LLC to his widely recognized blueprint publishing company.
Curtis is knowledgeable about the home building business from the design phase to construction and completion. Not only has he designed and built homes himself, but he also has extensive experience in sales of building materials helping customers choose construction and finish materials for all types of building projects from backyard sheds to dream homes.
