We recommend you review our FAQs prior to ordering. If you have questions, please Contact Us.
All house plans comply with the International Building Code. Our plan sets do not include a stamp from an architect or engineer. We sell house plans all over the country and since each area has different regulations, it may be necessary for the purchaser to hire a structural engineer to complete this requirement. We highly recommend you research what is required in your area prior to your purchase.
Important: Structural design and drawings are site specific due to the variations in natural conditions from site to site, local code requirements and local building standards. We recommend you use a local engineer licensed in the area you are building to provide the structural drawings to accompany our drawings. Framing plans are not included. Structural drawings provided by your engineer will specify foundation, beams, posts, columns, headers as well as tie downs, anchors, connectors and all other structural items. Plumbing locations are shown to locate plumbing through the slab.
The proposed A/C condenser and air handler units are shown on the plans. The duct sizing would typically be determined by your A/C contractor. Your builder will coordinate with your truss manufacturer, structural engineer, and A/C contractor to verify chase locations and duct layout and access provisions since structural and truss design will vary per provider.
The plumbing locations are shown on the slab plan. Plumbing line sizes and locations would typically be determined by your plumber. Your builder will coordinate with your truss manufacturer, structural engineer and plumbing contractor to verify chase locations and plumbing layout and access provisions since structural and truss design will vary per provider.
There is an electrical layout included in the plans. Circuits and service would typically be provided by your electrical contractor in coordination with your builder.
If additional plumbing, electrical or HVAC information is requested for permitting or by builder, we recommend that a local engineer provide that information.

After purchasing, you will receive the CAD and/or PDFs of our copyrighted house plan. Due to this fact, we are unable to provide a refund to you once you receive the order.

After we receive your order, we will send you a license agreement for completion.

If you modify the plan, we will provide you with a timeframe for completion when you request a quote.
