When you purchase your house plan from us, we, as the Licensor, grant you, as Licensee, the right (according to terms and conditions) to use these documents to construct as many dwellings in your given geographic exclusion as you wish. However, if you’re a builder a $500.00 fee is required for each additional build with a plot plan included in the cost.
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.
Because all of our plans are sold with geographic exclusions, protecting the copyright is protecting your rights as well. We actively pursue violators if not for this very reason. The plan below was the very first plan on our very first website, De’nouement, sold as a limited edition. How would you feel if you paid for custom house plan, and the very same house appeared down the street?
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.
