Terra Floor Plans was founded in March of 2017 with single-family floor plans which are available on the website for homeowners to buy or builders. In the fall of 2017, after speaking to Lisa Helps and Shayne Ramsay (Ceo of BC housing), Terra Floor Plans came up with our innovative multi-family design which can work for any town or city anywhere in North America, Europe and Australia. It is unique as it can be built from a two story with 6 units to a 10 story with 54 units and has co-housing built into the design.
