Will the plans meet my county's building codes?
Each country may have their own set of codes and regulations that have been determined to work best for the area. Our plans are designed to meet the national building code standards from the time and place where the plan was designed, but plans are not generally updated for any specific region. Many areas require additional steps once you have purchased your plans, including site plans, structural engineering, MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) plans, energy code compliance, and local code updates, so be sure to budget for what is needed in your location. You should consult with your local building official before starting your project. You can also call us to check on any specific plan codes.
What do I need to know about local building and zoning requirements?
Your plans may need to be modified to comply with local requirements regarding snow loads, energy codes, soil and seismic conditions, as well as a variety of other location-specific planning factors. Prior to ordering plans, we strongly advise that you seek advice from a home builder or engineer to discuss local planning requirements. You may also want to consult with your local building official before applying for any permit or beginning construction.
We authorize the use of our plans with the express condition that you comply with all local building codes, zoning requirements, and other applicable laws, regulations, ordinances, and conditions set forth by your planning commission. Modifiable plan options are available to help with any local requirements.
How is the living area calculated?
Like realtors and appraisers, we calculate the living area of the conditioned spaces only, meaning the areas of the home that are heated. Some areas that are not included in our LA calculation include porches, patios, sunrooms, screened porches, bonus rooms, garages, and foundations. Some basements may be considered in the LA if they are finished with rooms (living space).
