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.

Foundation Plans: include drawings for a standard, daylight or partial basement, crawlspace, pier, or slab foundation. All necessary notations and dimensions are included. (Foundation options will vary for each plan. If the home you want does not have the type of foundation you desire, contact the designer/architect of your plan.)

Interior Elevations: (call 1-800-482-0464 before ordering to confirm) show the specific details of cabinets (kitchen, bathroom). We suggest contacting local cabinet and fireplace distributors for sizes and styles.

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.

NOTE:
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.

Conditions of Sale Policy

Purchaser agrees to comply with all local codes and building regulations. The house plans featured in The COOL House Plan 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, COOL House Plan 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, COOL House Plan 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.

Prices and conditions are subject to change without notice. All sales are final, no refunds.

All construction plans ordered through The COOL House Plan Company are provided as-is and The COOL House Plan Company disclaims all other warranties, express or implied, including merchantability or fitness of purpose. Construction plans may not be returned for credit and/or refund under any circumstances. The COOL House Plan Company is not liable for incidental, special, consequential, or indirect damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, loss of anticipated profits, business opportunity, or other economic loss arising out of the use of services or any construction plans received from The COOL House Plan Company even if The COOL House Plan Company has been advised of the possibility of such damage.
