Q:here does the water heater and mechanical fit? does the plan come with stuctural drawings full to obtain a permit?
A:The water heater and furnace are next to the washer/dryer on the left side of the plan. The drawing contains all structural information, however the plans are not engineered for local site conditions such as soil, wind or snow loads. You will need to have a local building offical or structural engineer review the drawing to confirm that they meet the local codes and conditions.
