Previous Questions and Answers
Q:The application for permits requires Title 24 report and structural calculations, so are these plans up to date for these requirements? I wish to build walls with 2x6 framing for added insulation value, how much more will the plan be?
In answer to your questions, we would not be able to convert these drawings to 2x6 exterior walls due to the time involved for these
detailed drawings. We do not have structural calculations for this plan, but the structural members and overall design is consistent with the latest IRC code.
Our in house designer suggests the customer work with a local design professional for these enhancements and a local engineer would probably be the best route for the Title 24 report and structural calculations.

At the time the drawings were prepared, the plans confirmed to most national building codes. However, they may not comply completely with your local building regulations. Some counties and municipalities have their own building codes, regulations and requirements. The assistance of a local builder, architect or other building professional may be necessary to modify the drawings to comply with your area’s specific requirements. We recommend you consult with your local building officials prior to purchasing the blueprints or beginning constructions.
Contact your local building department to find out if a stamp or seal is needed for your county and or state. Some areas only require an Architectural seal while others may require an Engineered set of plans. Based on what is necessary in your area, your local building department should be able to direct you to a local architect or engineer who is able to stamp and/or seal the plans for you for your particular area.
