Terms & Conditions

Please be certain that the plan you have selected suits your needs as all sales are final.

All house plans from Architectural Designs are designed to comply with the International Residential Code (IRC) and to the local codes in the area where the designer resides or where the house was built.

Every state, county or municipality will have its own building and code requirements. It is possible that your plan may need to be modified to comply with these local requirements. This is particularly true in coastal areas and those facing seismic events, extreme winds and heavy snow. If you are building in any of these areas, it is likely that a licensed structural engineer will be needed to provide the necessary calculations and additional drawings. We authorize the use of our plans conditioned on your obligation and agreement to strictly comply with all local building codes, ordinances, regulations and requirements, including permits and inspections at the time of and during construction. We recommend checking with your local building department for the most current requirements.

All pre-drawn plans from Architectural Designs do not carry a stamp from a licensed architect. If this is a requirement from your local building department, you will need to hire an architect or engineer to review and stamp the plans.

The original designer retains title and ownership of all plans. The original designer, as the Licensor, grants you, as Licensee, the right to use these plans to construct a single structure. All of our plans are protected under the Federal Copyright Act, Title XVII of the U.S. code and Chapter 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The plans licensed to you cannot be used or resold to another individual. These plans cannot be copied or reproduced by any means unless specifically authorized.
