What Do Our Sets of Home Plans and Garage Plans Include?
Construction blueprints are detailed, clear and concise. All blueprints are designed by home designers and/or licensed architects and each home plan is designed to meet one of the nationally recognized building codes (the Uniform Building Code, Standard Building Code, International Residential Code, or Basic Building Code) at the time and place that particular home building plan was drawn.
The blueprints for most home designs include the following elements, but the presentation of these elements may vary depending on the size and complexity of the home and the style of the individual designer/architect:

Exterior Elevations: show the front, rear and sides of the house, including exterior materials, details and measurements.

Schematic Electrical Layouts: (call 1-800-482-0464 before ordering to confirm) show the suggested locations for switches, fixtures and outlets. These details may be shown on the floor plan or on a separate diagram.

Detailed House Floor Plans: show the placement of interior walls and the dimensions for rooms, doors, windows, stairways, etc., of each level of the house.

Due to regional variations, local availability of materials, local codes, methods of installation, and individual preferences, it is impossible to include detail on heating and plumbing work on your plans. The duct work, venting, and other details will vary depending on the type of heating and cooling system (forced air, hot water, electric, solar) and the type of energy (gas, oil, electricity, solar) that you use. These details and specifications are easily obtained from your builder, contractor, and/or local suppliers.
Home Plan Information Policy
Although Collective House Plans Company and our affiliated house designers and architects make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our plan information, we reserve the right to make corrections on our floor plans and/or elevations if changes occur.
Note: Photographed homes may be modified from their original construction documents to suit homeowners’ preferences.

Conditions of Sale Policy

Purchaser agrees to comply with all local codes and building regulations. The house plans featured in Collective House Plans Company web site are prepared by independent building designers and architects. All plans comply with national recognized building codes (either the Uniform Building Code, Standard Building Code, or Basic Building Code) in effect at the time they were drawn. Because local and state building regulations vary from region to region and are constantly changing, absolute conformance to purchaser’s specific requirements is impossible. Therefore, Collective House Plans Company authorizes the sale and uses of these plans expressly conditioned upon the purchaser’s obligation and agreement to strictly comply with all applicable codes, ordinances, regulations and requirements. Note that certain states require the services and seal of an architect registered in that state.

Purchaser agrees to check and verify all dimensions and materials before construction. Due to regional variations, Collective House Plans Company cannot and does not guarantee the availability of any materials or products suggested or specified on plans. Any discrepancies or questions must be reported to the respectful designer/architect prior to the start of construction.

Purchaser agrees that the use of the plan is for the construction of one house only, and that the plan or any part of it will not be reproduced by any means without the written consent of the copyright owner.
