What’s included in your plans?

Construction blueprints are detailed, clear and concise. All blueprints are designed by a home designer and each home plan is designed to meet the International Residential Code at the time and place that particular home building plan was drawn.

The blueprints for most home designs include the following elements, but the presentation of these elements may vary depending on the size and complexity of the home or plan purchased

Exterior Elevations: Show the front, rear and sides of the house, including exterior materials, details and measurements.

Foundation Plans: Include drawings for a standard full basement. All necessary notations and dimensions are included. (Foundation options will vary for each plan. If the home you want does not have the type of foundation you desire, contact Beyond Basics to discuss your options.)

Electrical Layouts: Electrical plans should be designed based on your needs with your electrician. Builders will normally allow an allowance for this work included in their estimate.

Detailed House Floor Plans: Show the placement of interior walls and the dimensions for rooms, doors, windows, stairways, etc., of each level of the house.

Plumbing & Heating: 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.

Condition of Sale

Purchaser agrees to comply with all local codes and building regulations. The house plans featured on Beyond Basics web site comply with national

recognized building codes in effect at the time they were drawn. Because local and state building regulations vary from region to region and are constantly changing, absolute conformance to purchaser's specific requirements is impossible. Therefore, Beyond Basics authorizes the sale and uses of these plans expressly conditioned upon the purchaser's obligation and agreement to strictly comply with all applicable codes, ordinances, regulations and requirements. Note that certain states require the services and seal of an architect or engineer registered in that state.

Purchaser agrees to check and verify all dimensions and materials before construction. Due to regional variations, Beyond Basics cannot and does not guarantee the availability of any materials or products suggested or specified on plans. Any discrepancies or questions must be reported to Beyond Basics prior to the start of construction.

Prices and conditions are subject to change without notice. All construction plans ordered through Beyond Basics are provided as-is and Beyond Basics disclaims all other warranties, express or implied, including merchantability or fitness of purpose. Beyond Basics is not liable for incidental, special, consequential, or indirect damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, loss of anticipated profits, business opportunity, or other economic loss arising out of the use of services or any construction plans received from Beyond Basics even if Beyond Basics has been advised of the possibility of such damage.

It is the customer's responsibility to ensure the accuracy, compliance with applicable statute or regulation, and fitness of purpose of any plans or construction information received from Beyond Basics prior to use thereof.
