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.

Q:Not sure if my question came through yesterday, what code is this plan drawn too?
A:Our drawings are designed to be as user friendly as possible knowing that each location will present a different set of regulations to be enforced based upon your local jurisdiction. With that in mind, our plans are compliant with the current IRC (International Residential Code); however, our plans are not engineered to meet your local structural requirements that exist. Minor revisions or supplemental information may be required to comply with local codes, zoning requirements, and building regulations. We recommend that you consult with a local engineer/building codes department in these matters.
