Q:Dear GarlingHouse, Couple of the notes in regards to Plan 45395 caught my eye. I'm hopefully planning to build in AZ. Noticed a reference to plans possibly not meeting code as is. Trying to figure out the appropriate contact, so I know if the plans are useable as is OR require modification. Thank You
A:Hey, our plans are drawn to the 2009 IRC code. We are actually located in North Carolina and we also update our plans to the 2012 NC code. Depending on the local permitting office's requirements the plans may or may not meet local codes.
