Architectural/Engineering Seals & Building Codes
These plans are NOT stamped by a structural engineer or registered architect and were designed to meet the current building code at the time of their design, such as the International Residential Code. Due to regional requirements such as: high wind areas, seismic conditions, soil conditions, snow loads and other specific circumstances, we encourage you to consult with an engineer or architect familiar with conditions in your area prior to building. In addition, local building departments may require that the plans be reviewed and/or modified to comply with local requirements. Please contact your local building department before placing your order.
