What's Included in your Construction Document Set.
The construction documents are clear, concise and detailed. All construction documents
are designed by Brenda or Kris Rand. Each plan is designed to meet nationally recognized building codes. construction documents will vary depending on the size and complexity of the home and the style of the individual customer and regional codes and regulations.
Each set may include the following elements:
1. Exterior Elevations - show the front, rear and sides of the house,
including exterior materials, details and measurements.
2. Detailed Floor Plans - show the placement of interior walls and the dimensions for rooms, doors, windows, stairways, etc. of each level of the house.
3. Foundation Plans - include drawings for a full, partial or daylight basement and/or crawlspace.
4. Roof Plans - provide the layout of rafters, dormers,
gables and other elements including clerestory windows and skylights.
5. Lighting Plan - show the suggested locations for switches, fixtures and outlets.
6. Site Plan - show the suggested locations for Main house,
access buildings, pools and landscape vegetation.
For an additional fee, 3D exterior and interior views will be provided.
NOTE: Due to regional variations it is impossible to include much detail
on heating, plumbing and electrical work. Duct work, venting and other
details vary depending on the type of heating, cooling system
(forced , 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 or local suppliers.
Licensing: When you purchase your house plan from us, we, as the Licensor, grant you, as Licensee, the right to use these documents to construct as many dwellings in your given geographic exclusion as you wish. All of the plans in this web site are protected under the Federal Copyright Act, Title XVII of the U.S. code and Chapter 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations. aboveallhouseplans.com retains title and ownership of the original documents, except under custom home contract.
Compliance with Local Codes and Building Regulations: Every state, county and municipality will have its own building regulations, zoning requirements, codes and ordinances. Therefore, your plan may need to be modified to comply with local building requirements, which is particularly true in the state of Nevada, which has major restrictions prohibiting builders from using construction documents drawn by non-Nevada licensed architects. We authorize the use of our construction documents 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.
Architectural and Engineering Seals: With increased concern over energy safety and costs, many cities and states require that an architect or engineer review and "seal" a blueprint prior to construction. We will contact your local authorities on this point.
