What do I need to know about architectural and engineering seals?
Some cities and states are now requiring that a licensed architect or engineer review and "seal" a blueprint, or officially approve it prior to construction due to concerns over energy costs, safety and other factors. Prior to application for a building permit or the start of actual construction, we strongly advise that you consult your local building official who can tell you if such a review is required.
What do I need to know about local building and zoning requirements?
At the time of creation, our plans are drawn to specifications published by the Building Officials and Code Administrators (BOCA) International, Inc.; The Southern Building Code Congress (SBCCI) International Inc. The International Conference of Building Officials; or the Council of American Building Officials (CABO). Our plans are deigned to meet or exceed national building standards.
Will the plans meet my county's building codes?
Each state, city and subdivision have their own set of codes and regulations that they have determined work best for their area. As stock plans are sold throughout the country, they meet national codes. However, you will need to take the plans to a local architect or engineer to determine if the plans will meet local codes.
