About Our Plans
The plans are typical designer plans with sufficient information for general construction. All plans are prepared in compliance with the Uniform Building Code (ICBO), a national standard for residential construction. All plans must be approved by a local building official prior to construction and may require engineering.
Construction plans are shipped UPS Ground, UPS 2nd Day Air, and UPS Next Day Air, with shipping/handling costs depending on the plan square footage. Small (up to 1500 sq. ft.) is $20.00 Ground, $30.00 2nd Day Air, and $40.00 Next Day Air. Medium (1501 to 2500 sq. ft.) is $20.00 Ground, $30.00 2nd Day Air, and $40.00 Next Day Air. Large (over 2,501 sq. ft.) is $25.00 Ground, $35.00 2nd Day Air, and $45.00 Next Day Air. A US$15.00 surcharge will be applied to all construction plan orders shipped to Canada. CAD disks must be shipped UPS 2nd Day Air. If study plans are ordered at the same time, they will be shipped together with the construction plans. A $5.00 shipping/handling charge applies to all Plan CD orders. Study plans are shipped First Class free. Delivery times are as quoted from UPS and USPS and are not guaranteed.
Emailed PDF files are sent on the next business day after the order is received.
