Important: Our plans can be built "as is", but always check with your local building department as they may have specific requirements for your area that may not be required in other areas. Some jurisdictions may require structural engineering, soil bearing reports, or energy efficiency calculations which you would have done by someone in your area. Some jurisdictions require drawings to be reviewed and stamped (sealed) by a licensed engineer or architect for the building permit.
Foundation shows footings, step down footings, foundation walls, concrete pilings, garage foundation, frost walls, weeping tile, teleposts and beams, bearing walls, concrete floor insulated (if required), garage floor support, and more.
Floor Plans show exterior wall design and finish, floor systems, stair details, deck details, landings, etc. Roof shows pitch, overhangs, false gables, saddles, vaults, coffered, barrelled, or trayed ceilings.
No plumbing or heating drawings are included as in most areas these are not required for residential plans, and also, due to the huge variety of local codes and climate conditions. Your local plumbing and heating contractors can easily supply these if needed. Electrical drawings are not included as they are not normally required for residential plans. Your local electrical contractor has the knowledge of the requirements and codes for your area to provide a drawing if needed for the permit process.
