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
Elevations: show the front, rear and sides of the house, including
exterior materials, details and measurements.
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
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.
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.
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.
Although The COOL House Plan
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.

any materials or products suggested or specified on plans. Any
discrepancies or questions must be reported to the respectful
