All Plans and Modifications Sales are final. No refunds or exchanges once order fulfillment is in process.
All Plans were designed to meet all local codes at the time and location when the original plans were created.
As with any stock plans, when submitting for permit, the customer would likely need to provide design and documents that are not included with the purchased plans, as required by the customer’s local jurisdiction. Required documents may include:
- A site plan showing the location of building on the site, property zoning, property boundaries, utilities, site features, well, septic system, etc.
- Structural engineering: Stock plans typically do not include structural plans. If structural plans are included, such as a foundation plan, framing plans and structural schedules, they are included for reference only. A state-licensed structural engineer should review the drawings, and may likely be required to provide engineering calculations, plans and details as needed to comply with the current state structural code. This may include addressing seismic zone requirements, local snow loads, local wind loads, etc.
- Electrical, Mechanical, and Envelope systems that meet all Local Energy Code requirements.
- The customer would need to confirm all such requirements with the local jurisdiction planning and building departments. The customer’s builder may be able to help with this process.
- Stock plans typically do not include an engineer’s or architect’s stamp. In case your local building department requires an engineer’s and/or an architect’s stamp, the customer would need to take the stock plans to a local engineer and/or architect for review, to implement potential modifications, and to affix such stamp/s.
