Definition of Drawings:
Your plan features slab construction rather than a basement, the plan shows footings and details for a monolithic slab.
Shows the layout of each floor of the house. Rooms and interior spaces are dimensioned and include locations of doors and windows. Plans will also include markers indicating cross-section details provided elsewhere in the plans if applicable.
Building sections show changes in floor, ceiling, or roof height, and / or the relationship of one level to another. These sections show how the various parts of the house fit together and are valuable during construction.
The electrical plan offers suggested locations with notes for all lighting, outlets, switches, and circuits. A layout is provided for each level. This plan does not contain diagrams detailing how all wiring should be run, or how circuits should be engineered. These details should be designed by your electrician.
In addition to the front exterior, your drawing set will include drawings of the rear and sides of your house as well. These drawings list exterior materials and finishes.
Details may include the foundation, interior walls, exterior walls, floors, stairways, and / or roof details. NOTE: Only Construction and Complete Sets include construction details.
Some building departments require by law that a licensed architect or engineer sign and stamp the construction drawings to obtain a building permit for construction. The purchase of house plan drawings does not include a stamped set of construction drawings nor structural engineering. Structural integrity and design is critical to creating a safe building. We recommend that our clients work with a structural engineer before construction.
